In the latest Newsweek, strong language from noncandidate General Wesley Clark about George W. Bush:

Q: What do you think of President Bush�s using war imagery as a political tool, like when he recently flew onto an aircraft carrier?

A: The world expects something more of an American president than to prance around on a flight deck dressed up like [a] pilot. He�s expected to be a leader. That�s my fundamental issue with it. It doesn�t reflect the gravitas of the office. Furthermore, it�s a little phony.

It's weird to hear someone so prominent saying the very thing I was thinking at the time.

Though far be it from me to condemn anyone for prancing.
