I wonder if they take him out for walks on a schedule or if he scratches at the door of the Whitehouse. Then there are those bills he signs into law, and the people he appoints. Who pulls those strings. Karl Rove? He's an exceptional handler and trainer, but just a hired man.
They tell him where to devote funds, where to starve aspects of government. They told him to starve New Orleans. They've told him to starve Los Angelese, where the potential for a disaster is "worse than katrina."
My guess... his handlers told Bush he could piss on New Orleans, and piss on LA. They're poor black democrats in New Orleans, and wealthier Democratic fundraisers in LA-- not part of his base.
As I write this, CNN shows national guardsmen persuading an uncooperative black Labrador retriever into a dog cage. They talk about how now, a big concern of victims of the flood is rescuing their pets. We can be sure that they are better trained than Bush. We can be sure that they do a lot less damage than Bush. Some dogs just can't be trained. Some dogs are trained to be such bad dogs, you can't untrain them.
