Oddly enough, in reading this I was reminded of nothing so much as the war currently on in Iraq.  I’ll to admit too that I probably muttered something like, “At least they had a stated goal, even if it was a filthy one and they should have been killed at birth.”  Did I mention I don’t like bullies?  Every time I think about the war in Iraq that’s what gets me; we’re causing indescribable suffering (because description doesn’t cover anything but a small fraction) for an apparently unstateable.  Unsayable, since the one I used hasn’t been coined yet, probably over the problem of spelling.  Oh, and one other thing about the similarity; George Bush is far too intellectually lazy to ever memorize a poem longer than a page, even one about himself.  Since he’s seemingly gone out of his way to prove that, I’m making that particular statement as one of fact.

“And the point of the war in Iraq

is to make sure there is a war in Iraq.”


Finally, an admission.  This isn’t anything new in terms of political perspective; Machiavelli would have found it quite understandable.  Make sure you click on the link and then the video.  I am   merely astonished at their, eh, transparency.  It’s right on a par with the business world using “transparency” as a synonym for “invisibility” which resulted in some truly inappropriate unintended statements which were generally actually quite accurate.  Outside of Cheney I wonder what the average IQ is of the Bush administration.
