I guess I should write something about GWB’s statement (I still refuse to call him the president), but I can’t find any words. So I’ll steal Jacob Weisberg’s (link):
The only official I saw who failed to create some sense of reassurance was the president. All he knew how to do was read his statement and offer a prayer. My honest, churlish reaction: I wish Bill Clinton were still the president.
yeah, like that.
