george w, you are no george w

You may have heard of Frances Townsend, one of the national security advisers to de facto President George "W does not stand for Washington" Bush. She was the one who said that the failure to capture Osama Bin Laden was "a success that hasn't occurred yet."

Well, she's quitting, either to go make some bucks or to flee the sinking ship - or both. And in her handwritten letter of resignation to Bush, she writes:
In 1937, the playwright Maxwell Anderson wrote of President George Washington: There are some men who lift the age they inhabit, til all men walk on higher ground in their lifetime.

Mr. President, you are such a man.
Holy ass-kissing, Batman, can you believe this?

I won't even get into all the reasons that Bush has LOWERED the age he inhabits (state-sanctioned torture is a good start). What scares me is maybe Townsend actually believes what she wrote. Clearly, she has quaffed far too much of the Kool-Aid while in Bush's servitude.

Scott Horton has more about the utter lack of comparability between George W. Bush and George Washington.
