Blind Leading The Blind

At a news conference yesterday at the White House lawn, Bush once again proved that intelligence dosen't necessarily go along with power. See: for video link.
When Los Angeles Times journalist Peter Wallsten stood up to ask the Commander Inept a question, this is what transpired:

Bush: " Yeah, Peter. You're going to ask that question with those shades on?"

Wallsten: " I can take them off---"

Bush: " No, I'm interested in the shade look, seriously here."

Wallsten: " All right, I'll keep it then."

Bush: " For the viewers there's no sun." (chuckle)

Wallsten: " I guess it depends on your perspective."

Bush: (chuckle) "Touche!"

Ummm, yeah. There's only one problem. Peter Wallsten is legally blind! He has a rare genetic disorder called Stargardt's Disease, which can be slowed by wearing UV-protective sunglasses & avoiding exposure to bright light.

Although Wallsten holds no ill will towards President Duh, it did make Bush appear like a punk, & a stupid one at that! Bush's attempts to appear funny backfired. Kind of like his presidency!
