Wonder boy discovers x-rays



In considering the astoundingly halfwit remarks by George W. Bush, Digby wonders, "What is he, 6?" I encourage readers to visit the comments section to Digby's post.

Here was Geedubya's dewy-eyed discovery as reported by the Associated Press:

"What I'm telling you is that we're focused here," Bush said from the Port of Baltimore, where he got a waterside demonstration of cargo-screening techniques. "When you're at war, you can't lose sight of the fact that you're at war."

Among the state-of-the-art techniques Bush observed were computerized systems, sophisticated radiation detectors and advanced X-ray equipment.

"You can look inside in the truck, and you don't even have to get in it," Bush said afterward to an audience of state and local officials and port employees. "That's called technology. And it's working. It makes a big difference."

I know it's totally unfair, because the story about his dad was misreported, but I couldn't help thinking of the time when his dad was impressed by the scanner at the grocery store. (It wasn't any old scanner, it was able to read a bar code that had been torn--or something.)
