Grasping at Straws
Will Bush’s plander* to send “thousands” of Guard troops to the Mexican border supplant mismanaged war, a still supremely fucked Gulf Coast, Stasi-like domestic spying, and mind-boggling national debt in America’s consciousness?
I’ll give the guy credit for trying, but surely no one except the most obstinate dead-enders and Bush loyalists will allow themselves to be so easily distracted...
* Plander (n.) A political strategy catering to the lower tastes and desires/exploiting the weaknesses of others.
