summarizing the Bush era

May 16th, 2007

Normally I'd just read these political articles and move on, but one that I found today is so succinct and logical that I think it deserves a note in the margin. Incompetent Design, the premise of how Bush and his buddies manage to make their dealings seem incompetent whereby they're point by point achieving exactly what they want to achieve.

It's a sobering perspective on the situation, certainly similar views have been expressed in the past, but I haven't come across a theorem equally elegant, logical and complete.

It's interesting how the assumption of "things aren't going the way we want them to" has been made into fact without actually being established anywhere. Meanwhile, sock puppets and figureheads like Bush, Rumsfeld, Gonzales and Rice come out and say the most outlandish things and the only response is mockery. Fine way to deflect real reactions. Underestimating idiots sure can be dangerous.
