The War on...Underbrush

The Preznit has now spent around 365 days on vacation at his ranch. That's right -- The Shrub has been on the job for five years, and has spent about a year of that time clearing...well...shrubs and underbrush and cedar trees. The WaPo has a feature on the favorite Bushie hobby, including this gem from Dan Bartlett:
"It's therapeutic for him, I guess. There's very few things he gets to do hands on."
Because being President of the freaking United States of America is such a hands off experience for Georgie Boy, he has to get that hands on time with cedar trees? I don't even know what to say, except that even the smarmiest of political operatives can speak the truth sometimes, I suppose, even if it is just a slip of the tongue.
