Dream World


Saturday morning! The winter weather impinges only slightly on the warm glow of the computer screen. Breakfast is done and the day is about to crank out its chores and errands and later, perhaps, some entertainment. Life is good, even if politics is going grotty right before your eyes.


The problem with criticizing George Bush and his arrogance is that he does not care what you think. He is going to play this charade of a Presidency right up to ... and perhaps beyond ... the place where most of us fear to tread. George may or may not think he is right to prosecute this strange war in Iraq and Afghanistan (and Pakistan) (and perhaps in Iran in a few weeks). He may think himself righteous in accreting power to himself (and his Office) under the guise of being a wartime President, which he pronounces "Commander-in-Chief." It does not matter whether he believes it or not. He is also Cheney and Rumsfeld, and what one lacks in acumen or common sense or courage the others seem to have. They don't give a damn for the Constitution or anyone who does. Keep that in mind as you read the first of today's articles.
