Bush's "Reality is for suckers" presidency
From "Without a Doubt" by Ron Suskind.
I think the http://www.yuricareport.com/ [Broken] confirms these changes in US to a theocracy.
Juan Cole reveals that Bush is really the reincarnation of Mao.
(Hmm.. not surprising really when you consider the background of the neo-cons.)
I agree with Bartlett's assessment that a Bush win will start a huge divide in the Republican Party. The spirit of saving a Republican presidency may motivate a lot of Republicans this election, but the business of bringing the Republican party back into the mainstream will begin as soon as the election is over.
It's hard to remember how a strong conservative allied with the religous right could win the nomination .... unless you look back to the perception of Bush that existed in 1999 and 2000:
everyone knows george bush is a maniac.............
the whole world protested last year against his plans to invade oil in iraq.
The way you use that word implies you have no idea what it means.
Umm, russ, a country whose head of state channels God may not be quite a theocracy yet, but it's getting there. If Bush is able to replace any of the more liberal justices on the Supreme Court next term it'll get there a lot faster.

Ron Suskind was on Hardball (MSNBC) a couple of hours ago, some of the things he said were quite shocking - to me, that is.
I don't think a transcript will be out for a little while ...
is this true?
No, there is no merit to any of that. If you do a search, there is a thread around here debunking much of that.
He probably cant anyway. His powers to initiate legislation is quite weak, relying directly on Republican senators and representatives to draft a bill and send it through the legislature. Even then controversial bills such as these tend to die in the committee process.
Here's a part of that transcript : (the rest is here )
