Quote Du Jour


"In his unstoppable commentary about himself, Bush has become as certain of his exalted place in history as he is of his policy's rightness. ... History has become a magical incantation for him, a kind of prayerful refuge where he is safe from having to think in the present. For Bush, history is supernatural, a deus ex machina, nothing less than a kind of divine intervention enabling him to enter presidential Valhalla. Through his fantasy about history as afterlife - the stairway to paradise - he rationalizes his current course."

-Sidney Blumenthal

I'll resume writing about fictional horrors soon..
