By Tweed

Yesterday, President Bush awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to two of his administration's former top sycophants and one of the only retired top generals to support his re-election bid: contender for Chief White House Tool, L. Paul Bremer; War Justifier in Chief, George Tenet; and General Tommy Franks.

Tenet, Bremer and Franks Immediately Prior to Accepting Their Medals

President Bush delivered a carefully worded endorsement of each and refused to ask questions as to why he chose these three. Others in the administration shed some light on the decision. "We felt that Bremer and Tenet really helped out the President," said an administration official on the condition of annonymity. "They did such a piss-poor job that they really made the President look good. And we were afraid Franks would beat-up someone if he didn't get it."

Other people on the short list were John O'Neill, Zell Miller and Dick Cheney.
