Welcome to the club
Did you see Robert Scheer's syndicated column today? Scheer refers to George W. Bush as "our idiot president" and accuses him of "extreme irrationality" and "utter moral depravity." Well, where's he been? Didn't he realize from the get-go that GWB's presidency was going to be like this? Of course, it was very hard to predict how bad it was going to get, what with the U.S. reputation (and dollar) in the toilet because of our poor conduct in Iraq. But appointing cretins (albeit highly educated and accomplished) to the Supreme Court, putting Cheney in charge of everything, fighting unnecessary wars -- that was easy to anticipate. After all, his dad's mentor, Ronald Reagan, is a hero to most of the country. How do you figure that?
