Brain Tumor? Chemical Imbalance? Andy Card Brings The Crazy

Former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card is disappointed because Obama doesn't show the same respect for the Office of the President that George W. Bush, his Dad, and Ronald Reagan did.

They showed their respect by wearing jackets and ties, he says.

So let's get this straight:

It's okay to launch illegal wars, authorize torture, spy on Americans, and reveal the identities of undercover agents as retaliation for unflattering press coverage (plus lots, lots more), as long as you're dressed for dinner.

Is that it, Andy Card?

Am I the one who's crazy? I think showing respect for the Presidency is tied inextricably to protecting and defending the Constitution, honoring the separation of powers, and a host of other things that can be done, as far as I remember, with or without a jacket and tie.

Let me hear you, friends. I'm in need of a reality-based check-in.

I guess this will continue to happen until W. and his gang of thugs are properly shamed and disgraced.

One thing is for sure, if we have to wait for the Democrats to do the right thing, we'll be waiting a Very. Long. Time.
