I wish I were making this up, but it’s true. Bush believes he is in an epic war against “pure evil,” yet managed to take time this week to raise money for the Republican National Committee, and he then left for a vacation at his family ranch in Crawford, Texas. And here I thought only cartoon superheroes fought against “pure evil.” Apparently Bush can do that and raise money for his political party at the same time. He can even fight pure evil and spend “quiet time” on vacation at the same time. Now don’t laugh — Bush clearly has his priorities straight: brush cutting, first; ridding our planet of pure evil, second.
