Ma! Syria's Lookin' At Me! 

Just so you know:
"I can do more than one thing at one time," the president assured Monday on the first of two planned visits this week to the Gulf Coast."
Whew! I was worried for a minute there. You see, what with all this disaster on the Gulf Coast---and now pressure from Iraq to attack Syria, and Americans reconsidering the wisdom of tying up all our money and manpower over there and thinking maybe a partial withdrawal might not be such a bad idea---with all this going on, Bush is getting a tad skittish.

No! he screeches, I can do more than one thing at a time (though previous experience might cast doubt on even the assertion that he can do one thing at a time):
"It is preposterous to claim that the engagement in Iraq meant there wasn't enough troops here, just pure and simple."
Simply preposterous. Did he learn that word at Yale? But he goes on with this poignant plea:
"By the time I'm finished (being) president, I hope you'll realize that the government can do more than one thing at one time and individuals in the government can," Bush told reporters Monday as he wrapped up a tour of New Orleans and Gulfport, Miss. "If I'm focusing on the hurricane, I've got the capacity to focus on foreign policy and vice versa."
Focus. That's the ticket. It's just a matter of finding the right optometrist. In the meantime, our ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, is pushing for either an outright attack on Syria, or another round of buffoonery with the United Nations. Can never have too many wars. Especially when the polls are looking so dire.
