Mister Murphy Goes to Washington
My brand-new 33-year-old congressman Chris Murphy, who knocked off the despicable GOP warhorse Nancy Johnson in this past election, had a sit-down with the oldest Bush boy yesterday:
[Murphy] described the White House meeting as “a pinch yourself moment,” and he also left the confab more impressed with the man who occupies the Oval Office.
“I really believe the president is much more intelligent than many people make him out to be,” he said.
So there’s your bumper sticker for the next 640 long, long days: George W. Bush — Not as Dumb as You Thought!

To be fair, we keep making him out to be the nexus of all stupidity in the universe, past, present and future. So, when he manages to finish a comprehensible sentence, people are impressed...
While this doesn't say much for the Shrubbery-in-Chief, but it says a little.
The President is very far from stupid. He is quite good at doing what he understands to be his job. Unfortunately this is not governing but marketing.
