The bit I like is the little "mm-hmm" you hear her give near the end. The "I'm already not listening to you" sound one has heard a million times from a pissy co-worker. This woman's just been caught out admitting she doesn't understand her oath of office to the people of the United States and that she's misplaced her priorities in a cult of politicized hero-worship ...and she's treating it like Myra from HR is harassing her about the damn TPS forms again.
So here's a question. Is this Daddy love "politics above all" process specifically linked to the Bush Administration, or has it gotten into the center of the Republican Party Establishment? That is, I'm not saying that there's something inherently authoritarian about American Republicans, I don't agree with that characterization. But has the political party apparatus been essentially shanked because it's been run by these clowns for the last eight years, and once you've just got buckets and buckets of these people in the actual bureaucracy it's impossible to clean out the rot?
