One more thing from Bill Minutaglio's First Son (page 260 of the hardcover) -- a quote about George W.:
"He is not as ham-handed as the typical terrorist. He's much more of a stiletto as opposed to an ax murderer."
Now, who would have said that? Some squishy, NASCAR-hating, America-hating, bicoastal liberal squish?
It was said by Mary Matalin, and she meant it as a compliment.
