The General Ostrich Position

All right, it's official: no one in the GOP remembers anything any more. And that includes our dear president:

Mr. Bush acknowledged one major failing of the early occupation of Iraq when he said of disbanding the Saddam Hussein-era military, “The policy was to keep the army intact; didn’t happen.”

But when Mr. Draper pointed out that Mr. Bush’s former Iraq administrator, L. Paul Bremer III, had gone ahead and forced the army’s dissolution and then asked Mr. Bush how he reacted to that, Mr. Bush said, “Yeah, I can’t remember, I’m sure I said, ‘This is the policy, what happened?’ ” But, he added, “Again, Hadley’s got notes on all of this stuff,” referring to Stephen J. Hadley, his national security adviser.

"Oh, yeah, I made a major screw-up. Did I learn anything from it? Hell, no! 'Sides, someone else got all the important stuff down, 'case I get quizzed on it."

I'm surprised anyone involved with the White House remembers how to put their socks on any more.
