DURST: Wait a Minute ... Dubya's an Idiot!

Oh dear. The second guessing of George W has begun. Gentlemen, start your misgivings!

Just when you thought it was safe to settle down with a tub of fried chicken the size of a sofa bed to watch the Olympics, now comes a sudden wave of the Bushqualms. According to one of the "a--holes" at the New York Times, high level supporters are worried Dubyah has recently seemed either "defensive, bumbling, weary, detached or peevish." Not to mention dumber than a bucket of hairballs, slimier than warm fishguts, more stubborn than a dead mule, as distant as the Hubble's far focus while running the worst campaign since France in '39.

Of course a lot of the apprehension is being written off as simple buyer's remorse. Obviously, with stakes this high, it's not hard to elicit advice from the pros. Said counsel ranges from a new haircut, to "Debate Already!" to "don't worry, we'll just shoot him if we have to." The last reportedly coming from inside the George HW camp.

But all agree its time to put some STP in the gas tank, clean out those valves, shift it into third and step on the gas. Or give PCP a try. Couldn't hurt.

Will Durst tried STP once and it hurts.
