Bush the ruthless (and elegant)

John Podhoretz has some advice for those who think that President Bush is either evil or a doofus (or, an evil doofus). Podhoretz is right in thinking that Bush is both ruthless and elegant, just think about how he has managed the departures of half his cabinet. He concludes: "The president has cleared the decks for his second term with surprising speed and even a dash of ruthlessness. You might think ruthlessness and elegance can’t co-exist, but you would be wrong. Elegance has a ruthless clarity about it, just as Bush has a ruthless clarity about him." Perche le iniurie si debbano fare tutte insieme.
