Hell Chimp of the Day

In Robert Draper's new book, Bush candidly describes his current war rationale: "I'm playing for October and November to get us into position where the presidential candidates will be comfortable about sustaining a presence to stay longer."

PS: In the same book he salivates over the huge mounds of cash he'll get in speaking fees. It will "replenish the coffers," he says. Could he have meant to say "coffins"?
