Quotable: Stirling Newberry on Andy Card’s burnout

“Andy Card kept more of his own sense of self than most people who can survive George W. Bush, who is roughly like handling a psychotic homocidal maniac, in that the slightest peeve or tick is enough to get someone ruined – they call disagreeing with Bush ‘Walking into the propeller’ in the White House. Bush believes that the way out is to get more dedicated Yes men in place.”
