Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

12/16/2005: Yet Another bAdmin 'FIRST'...


According to the WaPo the Boy-In-The-Bubble is up to yet more "Firsts"; a diverging set of precedents from the other Presidential *norms*:

"Unlike his three predecessors, including his father, Bush will not attend the four-day conference [on aging]."

And the article goes to note another typical bAdmin policy of using only "handpicked" participants for his photo-op potempkin propaganda messages:
"While the conference on aging delegates was meeting in a hotel uptown, the White House motorcade set out in the opposite direction, to Greenspring Village, a high-end gated retirement community in suburban Virginia. . . .

"The White House team handpicked the seniors who met with President Bush at the closed meeting."

and a White House and President set on clearly avoiding the purpose of the conference:
'The purpose of the conference was to develop recommendations for research and action in the field of aging and present a report with their findings to the president,' said spokeswoman Jeanie Mamo. 'The president participated at an event in Springfield, Va., to educate seniors on Medicare prescription drugs and encourage them to sign up with the program.'

'That he went to speak about Medicare in Virginia today, instead of an assembly of delegates from all over the country indicates that he's afraid to speak in anything but a controlled environment,' Binstock said during a session on improving the Medicare program, which provides health care for 43 million older and disabled Americans.'
