In case there’s any doubt regarding the sanity of our would-be boy king, take a gander at the display he recently put on for friends here in Texas (emphasis added):
The White House sees terrorists as born, not created by history, bearing the mark of Cain, not the mark of circumstance. There is a scarlet “T” written on their foreheads at birth and the only answer is to destroy them. This kind of thinking, of course, relieves the thinker of any responsibility for the presence of the insurgent-terrorist-whatever in our innocent midst.
What’s more, there is not much real give in the administration’s policies. True, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other American diplomats met Memorial Day weekend with the Iranians in Baghdad (a good first move but limited, since the Iranians have most of the power because of our incredible stupidity in Iraq). But by all reports, President Bush is more convinced than ever of his righteousness.
Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated “I am the president!” He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of “our country’s destiny.”

Our country’s destiny?!?! Be afraid world, be very afraid. The last time America had a destiny, it killed thousands if not millions, stole their property and put the survivors in holding pens called “reservations”. That destiny was accomplished with mere gunpowder. We’ve got nuclear warheads this time.
