Person of the Day: Bush King Kong


Those seeking a sense of the “thinking” behind the most secretive administration in U.S. history can find an interesting nugget in this recent piece by Georgie Ann Geyer, conservative columnist, in the Dallas Morning News:

“Friends of (Bush) from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated ‘I am the president!’ He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of ‘our country’s destiny.'”

It would seem that those using the term “Smirking Chimp” have not gotten it quite right.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
