"Bush is too stoopid to read books when he leaves office."

He’s too stoopid, or so said NBC News Washington Bureau chief Mark Whitaker to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Wednesday:

WHITAKER: I don’t think one of the least intellectually curious presidents we’ve had is going…is going to spend his retirement writing books or probably even reading books. However, look…

MATTHEWS: This is why they hate us, Mark. This is why–this is why they hate us.

The media have done what they see as their jobs, and President Bush is leaving office an unpopular President succeeded by je ne sais quoi, but Whitaker’s venom continues to make him appear the incurious dunderhead he wishes to potray the President to be. I’d say that these buffoons don’t get it, but it appears Chris Matthews is beginning to do so.
