Anti-Bush sentiment justifies anger?  Perhaps --- among brainless pro-Bush clones
who mindlessly accept all things Bush (or any other president, in time of crisis)

who can both grant kudos *and* call bullshit on the same person, each in its
appropriate time.

Oh, well, apparently Bill (and I, and countless others) either (a) missed that
"appropriate time for criticism" clause in the textbook on political commentary or
(b) don't have a direct hotline to God's Own Appropriateness Hotline.
