Bush press conference: Fool me once... 

Radio Boy how on earth he will be able to replace Kerik:

[BUSH] Now, in terms of the NDI -- DNI, I'm going to find someone that knows something about intelligence, and capable and honest and ready to do the job. And I will let you know at the appropriate time when I find such a person.
(via White House transcript)

Kerik, of course, was none of those things. Kerik knew nothing about intelligence, wasn't capable, wasn't honest, and wasn't ready to do the job—although, in a world that wasn't insane, you'd have expected him to be. It's amazing the way Bush can turn the merest, most obvious platitude about reasonable behavior into a lie.
