While it does not appear that the current Administration is anywhere near as evil as the Reagan Administration, the evidence seems to be mounting that the members of the current Administration are even dumber than Reagan and crowd. What's more, it appears that the current Administration is convinced that the public and their supporters are even dumber than the Administration itself.
Recently, FEMA held a press conference to address the California Wild Fires. Since no reporters showed up (either because FEMA didn't give anyone enough notice or perhaps simply because everyone knows it is impossible to believe anything FEMA claims), FEMA had some of their employees pretend to be reporters and ask questions during the conference.
And they thought the real reporters wouldn't notice?
Since we don't have a forum for "More examples of just how stupid the Bush Administration is", maybe coffeehouse?
