From One MoFo To Another...

Michael Isikoff and David Corn have a new book, Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War. It can be found at Corn's web site.According to a press release:
Bush reacted with a curse-filled tirade when told in May 2002 that reporter Helen Thomas was asking about the need to oust Saddam. Bush snapped:

"Did you tell her I intend to kick his sorry mother f**king ass all over the Mideast?"
But wait there's more:
In another revelation, the release says: "When Bush was first briefed that no WMDs had been found in Iraq, he was totally unfazed and asked few questions. `I'm not sure I've spoken to anyone at that level who seemed less inquisitive,' the briefer told the authors."
