Dowd: Bush Descended Into Slapstick

Maureen Dowd reports that the “once disciplined and swaggering Bush administration has descended into slapstick” as she makes fun of both their suggestions for energy conservation, and of Karen Hughes: Air Force One costs $83,200 to fill up and more than $6,000 per hour to fly.
