Good bye, Andy Card

White House chief of staff Andrew Card resigned today, after 5½ years running Dubya's staff. Let us all bid Andy a fitting farewell:

Don't let the door hit you on the ass!

Bill Kristol was just on Faux News commenting on this development, and the elevation of Josh Bolten (no relation to John Bolton) to the post. He referred to the "communication failures" of the Bush White House in recent months. I think that misses the mark quite badly: the problem isn't that the Bush Administration has been ineffective in communicating its policies, but that it has been ineffective in formulating those policies.

Bush is an idiot who refuses to listen to any person or any information that doesn't agree with whatever he has already decided. That's nothing but a recipe for disaster.
