His take

on Bush’s appointment of Josh Bolten as chief of staff: “He just gave a promotion to the guy in charge of our $9-trillion debt. You know what? I really think if you walked into a cabinet meeting and started hurling your feces at the wall, Bush would name a state after you.”


Brad Blog:

STEWART: Joshua Bolton who has been working in the White House for Bush’s entire Presidency. He spent two years working under Andy card. The last three years he’s been in charge of the Office of Management and Budget.

In other words, he just gave a promotion to the guy who is in charge of our $9 trillion debt.

You know what? I really think if you walked into a cabinet meeting and started hurling your feces at the wall — Bush would name a state after you.
