A Presidency So Surreal ...

That even Salvador Dali would step back, scratch his head, and say "What the hell?"

Because that's where we're at right now. People call it Bizarro World, or Bush World, but it all means the same thing.

The Rule of Law has been disregarded, openly flouted by the men who are the nation's top law enforcement officers (Gonzales and Mukasey) and our elected leaders (Bush and Cheney). There are quite a few secrets floating about Washington, most of them in cyberspace; if I were Howard Dean, I'd have hired a team of topflight hackers to trawl the White House with an eye to gathering evidence against these criminals.

Because you're not going to get it any other way. So much documentary evidence of the Bush Administration's wrongdoing from 2000 to now will be destroyed before Bush leaves office. If he leaves office.

I am not among those who think that Bush's puppetmasters will engineer a coup d'etat if Clinton or Obama get elected; I will admit the possibility, however. Right now, indications are that Bush will be quite happy to leave office with a fat bank account and all the booze and blow his tiny brain can withstand.

Let's review the bidding.

The economy is starting to circle the bowl, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan is bleeding us white in terms of military power and money, but President Pollyanna of Sunnybrook Farm insists that everything is just hunky-dory, hully gee and whillikers.

With all the damage done to our country - the economy, the Constitution, the legal system, the regluatory system, the environment, the poisoning of political discourse and of course the damage done from the war and self-inflicted damage to our moral standing - Bush will be more than happy to retire to Crawford or Paraguay and laugh his head off at the attempts made to fix the problems.

Meanwhile he and some of his mouthpieces (like the semen-spattered Tony Snow) have been crawling all over the TV like roaches, spewing out that Bush is actually a wonderful President.

Better than Truman.

Better than Lincoln.

I think that Star Trek had the line "In an insane society, the sane man must appear insane."

And people ask me why I act so crazy.
