does every president have one of these?

Maybe I should put Phil Nugent on my reading list. There are lots of little things someone else notes and nails in a way you not only agree with but would have written up yourself if you hadn't been busy saving the world and raking the lawn. Crooked Timber points me to a post of Phil's from which I fashion:

  • Nixon: "I am not a crook"
  • Clinton: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman"
  • Bush: "We do not torture"

[And of course, I would think it fair to ask, which insistent prevarication was in denial of the greatest evil?]

Each are saying what is in their own mind. In reality, for them, the difference is not visible. :)

Yeah, denial is a bitch.
