He's A Mighty Good Leader

rumsfeld1You name me a better one.

Donald Rumsfeld, the American defence secretary, has been using a machine to sign letters of condolence to the relatives of soldiers killed in Iraq, it emerged yesterday.

In a statement to the Stars and Stripes, the military newspaper, he conceded that he had not "individually" signed letters to the families of more than 1,300 war dead. He said it had been his wish to speed up the process. He added: "I have directed that in the future I sign each letter."
When Donald Rumsfeld directs that Donald Rumsfeld will sign each condolence letter, you can bet your life that Donald Rumsfeld will sign each condolence letter.

He's that good a leader.

Ease off on the Rum. The man's a class act. It's one thing to be signing condolence letters when there are only 100 or so write. But when it's 1,300, you risk serious damage to wrist and thumb.

You try signing 1,300 letters, tough guy. You won't make it through the first 500. You'll end up using a stamp pad, which is really impersonal.

Christ... you just get some interns to fake your signature... like Jesus and Santa do.
