The Anti-Reality President

The thing about George Bush's faith is that it isn't faith in God, it's faith in his own inerrant judgment, and his inability not just to overlook inconvenient facts, but his inability to even be confronted with them.

Everyone just read Suskind's article and consider just what four more years will mean.

Then go read this article by Hal Crowther. He writes:

I don't think it's accurate to describe America as polarized between Democrats and Republicans, or between liberals and conservatives. It's polarized between the people who believe George Bush and the people who do not.

That's about right. And, when George Bush is uninterested in and unable to be confronted with reality, it's fair to say that those people who do not believe George Bush are probably on to something...
