The oddest news item of

The oddest news item of the last couple of days was the EPA’s release of a paper on global warming that undercut the Administration’s position, followed by the President’s observation that the paper had been ground out by “the bureaucracy” and didn’t represent a change in position. I don’t get it: I know the President isn’t omnipotent and has to pick his fights with the bureaucRATS, but still, can’t Bush tell Christie Whitman to follow the Administration’s line (which, by the way, is clearly correct) on global warming? Is this another example of the Administration’s use of creative ambiguity? Or is it just confusion?
