Laughing Off Disaster at the Bush White House
Laughter in response to tough questions isn't unusual in the Bush White House. Yesterday's reponse to the 18 page letter from Iran's President Ahmadinejad was not much different from what we recently experienced when Bush was questioned by an undergraduate student at Johns Hopkins University about contractor impunity - although it was not nearly as abusive as the incoherent joking and laughter that Secretary Rumsfeld launched at public news broadcasters when questioned about the bombing of Afghanistan - where, by the way, we are still deeply involved in a full scale war.
