The White House staff is pathetic. The country is falling apart. They've screwed up a war. They screwed up Katrina. They keep making major mistakes. But, don't pick on them because they're tired:
The succession of crisis after crisis has taken its toll. Some in the White House sound frazzled. While there are few stories of aides nodding off in meetings, some duck outside during the day so the fresh air will wake them up. "We're all burned out," said one White House official who did not want to be named for fear of angering superiors. "People are just tired."Seriously, the fact that the Washington Post gives credence to this "they're tired" story line is actually almost unbelievable. Apparently, we've entrusted the country to a bunch of sleep deprived whiners. Now, doesn't that help you sleep at night?
