Is Bush an Idiot?

This question may be at worst stupid and at best irrelevant - but it is funny to ask anyway and it has been asked by a number of people throughout world in the last 6 years. Now even some Americans seem to wonder (albeit mostly in left-wing circles). This video (via Crooks and Liars) is an extract from the TV program Scarborough Country [Note that Joe Scarborough is a former Republican Congressman]
The first half of the video in itself is worth watching - it is a run down of clips involving some of the most famous "Bushisms" and it is absolutely hilarious.
Personally, I'll give Bush some credit for at least being funny and even for having a sense of humor - including self-derision. So he can't be that stupid.
In a recent conversation with Republican friends of mine, I was told that you can't be an idiot and become the President of the United-States. That I would not be certain of. The powerful GOP machine may do miracles and it may just take a team of very intelligent people to work for the guy.
Bush is certainly not very articulate and that may be why Jo Shmuck can relate to him so much - but that does not mean he is necessarily stupid either. As far as I'm concerned, the jury is still out...
