Emotions in the Vacant Space of Bush's Gray Matter

I was watching as Jimmy Carter castigated George Clueless Bush today at Coretta Scott King's funeral. Speaking of the Kings, Carter said:

"It was difficult for them then personally with the civil liberties of both husband and wife violated as they became the target of secret government wiretaps."
Later, he said that Hurricane Katrina showed that all are not yet equal in America. The mostly black audience demonstrated their agreement with a standing ovation and Bush's face contorted into an odd pinched look, as though he was sucking on a lemon.

I can understand why Bush's cronies screen his audiences before he speaks. He has no control over his facial expressions as emotions flit effortlessly across the vacant span of his brain.
