When language fails us

"Gall" doesn't even begin to describe it.
With President Bush these days, often there's nothing left to do but laugh. As when we learn that in a conversation with Egyptian democracy activist Saad Ibrahim, the president said, "You're not the only dissident. I too am a dissident in Washington." As Eric Kleefeld told me yesterday, President Bush seems confused. Dissidents are the ones who get tortured and wiretapped. Not the ones who do it. I guess that's one of those sentence structure mistakes

What's the explanation this time, ego, delusion, not sure what the word means?

Only eighteen months of this embarrassment remain. They are sure to be very long months.
