Wrong Truman

It’s been said that Chimpy aspires to be Truman.

I thought he meant the president, not the writer.

    I’m having a hard time imagining how Dubya can possibly think of himself as Trumanesque given his unbelievable disdain for the United Nations. Even the cartoon versions of Truman’s presidency include his role in the creation of that body.

    I read you guys for first-class snark (among other things), and you do not disappoint.

    I’ve always assumed they meant Truman Capote, the gay author, and not Harry Truman.

    If the Chimp aspires to be Truman, it’s because he wants to be the other president who dropped a nuke. He can do that if he’s dumb and mean enough, and he is. But no matter how hard he tries, he’ll never have anything approaching Truman Capote’s flair, style, wit and smarts.
    Peace, V.

    Truman was accused of being a ‘haberdasher’, but w is more like the store dummy.
