Now that's a clever frame!  President Bush is giving a press conference this morning in what he called the "fancy new digs" of the White House press corps.  Maybe it's his new approval rating of 42% that has him laughing and joking as he bumbles his way through a  defense of his Middle East and Iraq policy.

Commentators who have a larger audience than otherjones should point up the fact that democracy is not the opposite of terrorism.  Democratic state regimes use state terrorism, while democratically elected minority representatives in failed or weak states use the weapons they can get.   The number of Lebanese represented by Hezbollah, 40%,  is significantly higher than the number of Americans represented by the Bush administration, barely 50% of the 30 or 40% who vote.

More later, as another absurd day wears on....
