President Bean Counter

Sidney Blumenthal, hawking his book, was just telling Bill Hemmer on CNN why he considers Bill Clinton a great president. Sid offered this story to explain (I am paraphrasing from memory, will post transcript when I see it): An number of advisers were in the Oval Office advising the president on some important policy debate. When they were done, the president said: You are the dumbest group of white guys I have ever seen. Don’t ever come in here without women and minorities again.

Does it for me.
