Finally read Ron Suskind's NYTimes Magazine article on George Bush. Frightening. That president man (let's use Bush's folksy tone of voice) runs the country on a wink and prayer, though in his case it's more like a smirk and a prayer. A president who refuses to be molded to some degree by his constituents and his advisors and the world at large, especially one who's been a C-student most his life, is an idiot blinded by hubris. I thought the pilgrims left England to escape hereditary monarchy.
