Mark Racicot: Funny Stuff

Shares


I remember Mark Racicot being one of the most humorless politicians I have ever seen in action. Bland, not terribly intellectual, no real sense of humor. Turns out I was wrong about the last part: this guy is funny.

Actually visiting Montana, Racicot had this insight to offer:

“It’s a tough agenda,” he said. “This is a man who will never take the path of least resistance. If he thinks it’s the right thing to do, he will confront an issue.”

“I think we will see him rebound. … I believe he will go down as one of the best presidents ever in the history of this country,” Racicot said.

I mean, come on. If everything goes right Bush, he might move past Harding, maybe Harrison (the one who died after a month), but one of the best presidents ever?

Faith-based history.
