King George Has Gone Insane

It's described as "erratic behavior" by Capitol Hill Blue.

Bush has "wide mood swings," he rants and raves against "enemies" both domestic and foreign, and quotes the Bible like a deranged Southern preacher.

It's like the Nixon days is how a worried GOP political consultant describes it.

Only Bush, unlike Nixon, will not resign and fly off into the sunset. Nixon knew to get out while the getting was good.

God has put Bush in the White House and any number of scandals -- war under false pretense, the torture and murder of largely innocent detainees, the illegal outing of CIA operatives -- will not nudge him toward Air Force One and the isolation of the Crawford, Texas ranch where he can receive only the best care and do little harm to the rest of us.

God is not dismissed by human protocol. Or elections.

"In interviews with a number of White House staffers who were willing to talk off the record, a picture of an administration under siege has emerged, led by a man who declares his decisions to be 'God's will' and then tells aides to 'fuck over' anyone they consider to be an opponent of the administration," including Kerry and the Democrats, writes Doug Thompson of Capitol Hill Blue.

"In this administration, you don't have to wear a turban or speak Farsi to be an enemy of the United States," says another aide. "All you have to do is disagree with the President."

Millions of us are enemies of this felonious and depraved president. In fact, if we are to believe the polls, approximately half of all Americans believe Bush has made a mess of things and should go.

Are they enemies too? Does Bush hate millions of Americans, or at least those who don't listen to Rush Limbaugh?

Dubya "says he rules at the behest of God [and] can ... tongue-lash those he perceives as disloyal, calling them 'fucking assholes' in front of other staff, berating one cabinet official in front of others and labeling anyone who disagrees with him 'unpatriotic' or 'anti-American.'"

Bush and Ashcroft are the "Blues Brothers" because they are on "a mission from God," say West Wing staffers. "They both believe any action is justifiable in the name of God."

Maybe even terrorist attacks and stolen elections. All is possible when God rides shotgun.

It's obvious the ruling elite want to get rid of this former alcoholic -- a supposedly reformed addict with possible brain damage and thus incapable of holding office -- who has botched just about everything he has attempted to do over the last three and a half years. It is time for an end to the nightmare and a return to a kinder, gentler, and Clintonian version of neoliberalism.

Our rulers believe it is time for John Kerry.

It does not matter if the stories coming out of the White House are true ,although many of us who have followed Dubya's idiosyncrasies and neurosis since he was installed believe they are true. Insanity is the only logical explanation for what Bush is doing.

Bush was unstable before he entered the White House and obviously the tremendous stress of the presidency has pushed him over the edge.

Bush and the Christian Zionists, the Israel-first neocons and the Likudites in the Pentagon will probably not go gently into the good night. People who believe God is on their side are capable of doing great harm to those they perceive as "fucking assholes."

Not only those around them, but the rest of us as well.
