Novak Should Quit the Day Job

For unintentional comedic achievement, you just have to admire yesterday's Robert Novak column. I don't have the time to go through all the laugh lines, but the best might be this one:
Although he is the target of relentless assaults from Democrats, Bush dreams of replicating in chilly Washington the warmer political climate of Austin.
Riiiiiiggghhhht: Try as he might, George W. Bush just doesn't seem to be able to convince those mean old Democrats to join him in forging a bipartisan approach to solving America's problems together. So naive, that political peacemaker George.

Ok, I can't help it. Here's another:
So, why would the President think Rubin would help him? Perhaps Bush was naive and misled by superficial impressions. Rubin, now chairman of Citigroup, is a handsome, well-dressed, soft-spoken, charming multi-millionaire whom Bush might have mistaken for one of his rich Republican friends from Texas.
Got that? "Rich Republican Bush friend from Texas"="handsome, well-dressed, soft-spoken, charming multi-millionaire".

No wonder that man of the people, George W. Bush, was fooled by Robert Rubin....he didn't look like one of those facially scarred street ruffians who can't string together a sentence in proper English.

Ken Lay, Bob Rubin....hard to tell them apart I guess.

I wonder why Novak left intelligent off the list of traits...
