What a jerk.

When it comes to idiot-isms, George W. Bush never fails to disappoint. With poll numbers improving, George was feeling a little feisty the other day as he took questions from the press. When LA Times reporter Peter Wallsten stood to ask a question, Bush joked about him wearing sunglasses, and said "Are you gonna ask questions with those shades on?"

Wallsten is legally blind. Bush obviously didn't know (even he's not that much of an asshole), but he's still a jerk for not knowing. (Note: Bush did apologize later. But he's still an asshole.)
