Comments: Death, Disaster, And Dunces

"Either the Bush Administration is full of evil overlord-wannabes or they're incompetent idiots unfit to be in charge of a country. Insane or inept, those are the choices."

Actually, I'd vote for C: All of the above. Perhaps insane on some days, inept on others. Or both at the same time. Either way, it's damned scary...

Actually, I think it's possible that they're just dinkheads. They had some crazy idea that keeping their "eye on the ball" was all it would take to magically force the world to fall into place or something.

I acquit them of evil intent (except insofar as it's quite evil and naughty to disagree with me) but I'm afraid I'll have to convict them of being incompetent.

It's evil to be the ruler of the free world and be a total boob. If G.W. were a chess player, he would think only one move at a time. An 8-year-old could out-think him. He is absolutely a dinkhead. Why is he president?

(Nice blog, Anne!)

It's the same think I think of every time I hear (or write) that the failure in Iraq is a failure of leadership.

There is no leadership. There's only the guy who did a lousy job of managing a couple of private companies, was repeatedly bailed out by his father's friends, and (arguably, I think) used the same influence to keep him from facing an even worse insider trading scandal than Martha Stewart was put through.

There's no leader. Only a very poor, not particularly honest manager.
