Pure Evil

President Bush states that the situation in Iraq is "pure evil"?   Well, I think many Americans believe that there is a lot of "pure evil" in Washington DC. 
That statement is like the pot calling the kettle black.  For example:
AlterNet: Blogs: PEEK: Bush to recess-appoint Swift-Boat scumbag Fox

In a move that should disgust all and surprise nobody, the White House announced today that George W. Bush will recess-appoint Sam Fox, who gave $50,000 to the Swift Boat Liars to help finance their 2004 smear of John Kerry, to be the new U.S. Ambassador to Belgium.

The nomination was withdrawn last week, when it became clear to Bush that Fox, who was instrumental in derailing Kerry's presidential bid, did not have enough votes in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to be confirmed.

A recess appointment allows a president to fill vacancies while the Congress is on a break, even if the nominee has already been expressly or implicitly rejected by the Senate.
