Belles Lettres At the White House?

I have no problem with the Bush spin doctors promoting W as the steely-eyed, tough-boy defender of the Republic. Any administration is going to harp on its perceived strengths. That's a legitimate application of the spinmeister's craft.

But now they're trying to add a brushstroke or two of intellectualism to W's image.

Intellectualism?

Well, not to worry. Something this juicy is not going to get past observers like the inimitable Maureen Dowd, one of America's premier bullshit-spotters.

Dowd has her skewering rods in full motion in today's column. Don't miss it.
