Body Language

Shrub shrugs. You know, he can knit his brow and blather as much as he wants, but something I've noticed about the Chimperor for a long time is that his body language invariably gives the game away. Watch him at a press conference--when he dissembles, it's a virtual certainty that he'll cast his gaze downwards while shaking his head.

His shrug speaks volumes--it's his reaction to 4,000 American soldiers killed in Iraq. It's the flip side of Dick Big Time's "so?" when asked about the the American public's opposition to their Operation Enduring Clusterfuck. It's the reaction of someone who doesn't give the slightest shit about the nightmare he's unleashed, because, after all, in less than a year it won't be his problem. Indeed he and the crowd he slithers with will work overtime ("hard work") to blame his successor for "failing" after such a phenomenally "successful" surge.

It's the reaction of someone who, at heart, is a juvenile...someone who just doesn't get it.
