I hate to go all Jonah Goldberg on y'all but the small intern army of my dreams has failed to materialize, so if any readers recall noteworthy columns or magazine articles fitting the following formats:

  • Conservatives conceding that Bush is a bit dumb, but that that's okay.
  • Liberals or moderates saying Bush's critics should stop calling them dumb

It would be very helpful of you to leave a note in the comments. Because there are so many ways of saying dumb, and because "intelligence" also refers to the CIA it's very hard to Nexis for this kind of stuff.
