Is It Possible To Be Dumber Than Dubya? Dick Morris is Certainly Trying To Be

No, Morris' Reasoning Is More Twisted.

Besides being the author of a book with the world's longest title* Dick Morris is a conundrum. Actually, he started out as a conundrum, then evolved by stages into a convoluted conundrum and now has become a rather comic convoluted conundrum with schizophrenic tendencies. He started political life working for the Clintons in Arkansas, refused to advise Bill Clinton during his first campaign, got involved in the second campaign, let a hooker listen in to his conversations with the President to impress her, then became a political "pundit" with no direction whatsoever. He also prides himself as a political prognosticator of sorts but has yet to be completely accurate about any of his predictions. He once predicted that the 2008 race would be between Hillary Clinton and Condoleeza Rice.

He's been described as "the most ruthless political consultant" (BBC). He's either a Jewish Catholic or a Catholic Jew, but neither religion is talking. He came up with the political strategy of "triangulation" - appealing to a diverse group of voters while distancing one's self from either party.

He now says that Obama is weak on foreign policy because:

"Where he’s wrong is that we went into Iraq at the invitation of the government, not as an invasion."

If you don't believe me, see it for yourself (below). I have the strangest feeling that he's an implant from aliens designed to keep them in stitches about our politics.
