Incredibly Frustrating Things

Ah, the eternal mystery of Wingnutism: Stupid or Evil? As far as the Bush administration goes, I don't think it's an either/or proposition; the correct answer is: Both, with Dubya himself personifying the perfect melding of intellectual and moral bankruptcy.

And his legacy lives on! (and on, and on, and....)

Atrios sez:
One of the incredibly frustrating things during the Bush years was that people who were incompetent buffoons at best and transparently evil liars at worst were treated as Very Serious People.
"Were"??? Hell, they STILL ARE - which, of course, is one of the incredibly frustrating things during the Obama administration.

Evil or stupid or both? That's a question I'll have to ask Glenn Beck's followers as they descend on DC to besmirch the legacy of MLK.

I'll be fascinated to hear how many of them give you the correct answer, FW! Anyone want to place a bet?
