Daddy Puhleeeeze! I’M the Decider Now!!!

Sidney Blumenthal, a former White House insider himself, writes today in Salon:

Former President George H.W. Bush waged a secret campaign over several months early this year to remove Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld….But the former president’s effort failed, apparently rebuffed by the current president.

Talk about a dog who’s seen better days. After all, it was ‘W’ that famously shunned Daddy once and for all, telling Bob Woodward: “He is the wrong father to appeal to in terms of strength. There is a higher father that I appeal to.”

And today, Michael Berg, father of American contractor Nicholas Berg, who in 2004 was allegedly beheaded by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, told the Associated Press, following confirmation of Zarqawi’s death:

“Zarqawi felt my son’s breath on his hand as held the knife against his throat. Zarqawi had to look in his eyes when he did it,” Berg added, pausing to collect himself. “George Bush sits there glassy-eyed in his office with pieces of paper and condemns people to death. That to me is a real terrorist.”

How about some real intervention already?
