Our 'Leaders' Have Come Unglued
It's time to say the obvious: The Bushites are insane.
From George W on down, their behavior toward the world, toward our basic liberties, and toward the real needs of America -- is delusional and maniacal.
Start with George's war. He's lost in a fantasy of Messianic Mission and no reality can penetrate it. Forget what liberals, Democrats, and millions of peace protestors say -- people in his own party and the wiser heads from his father's presidency also think the boy has slipped into the weird. Bush doesn't merely think he's right, he thinks he's righteous and that only God and he see the righteousness of his war wrath. He's not thinking victory -- he's thinking Mt. Rushmore...or higher!
His delusions of grandeur are fueled by the likes of Donnie Rumsfeld and Paul "Howling" Wolfowitz at the Pentagon. These two are bull-goose loopy, driven to their "world domination doctrine" by an unbalanced and toxic load of bile and testosterone. Watch them on TV; they reek of hubris, which pours out of their pores like they're soaked sponges, unable to contain the unnatural surge of hubris from within.
And how sick is John Ashcroft? When he holds his press conferences to announce that he's throttled yet another of our essential democratic freedoms in the name of "securing freedom," his face glistens like he's experiencing some combo of religious rapture and orgasmic release. It's creepy.
Likewise, the Bushites' economic policies are further out than Pluto, having long passed the reality layer. They're loading up future generations with trillions of dollars in deficits while they shovel ever more money to the rich and into the war machine, at a time when we're in the longest continuous stretch of job decline since World War II.
It's time for America's true conservatives to step forward and make an intervention, for the Bushites are rabidly building empire and autocracy in the name of "conservatism." These people need professional help.
