Greetings from the Ridge.
A wise man relies upon the advice of good friends. Maybe George W. simply had none last week.
His chief of staff Andy Card was on vacation in Maine, Condoleezza Rice was shopping for shoes in Manhattan, Dick Cheney was in Wyoming, his media advisor Mark McKinnon was in Greece watching communications director Nicolle Devenish get married.
It really wasn’t George’s fault.
