George W. Bush is a person. Some people think that he is evil or stupid. A dwindling number of people think that he is the Man with the Master Plan. But what if he’s just some dude…
1… who knew what to say at the right time to get himself to the top (Rove helped)
2… whose greatest fault might be that he’s so damn sure of himself (used to be endearing)
3… who never learned to admit a mistake (WMD)
4… and who, at the end of the day, may find himself very, very alone? (Even Rove has resigned now)
The hopes and dreams of the right-wing Christian conspiracy were vested in him. What do we have to show for it?
Bush is not a man to hate, much less a man to envy. But a man to pity and to pray for, to be sure. God have mercy on the man (or woman) who inherits those shoes. God have mercy on us all.
