A Nation of Nitwits?

The following description of George W. Bush is from the book The Dick Cheney Code: A Parody by Henry Beard. In the book, this description is given by Donald Rumsfeld in a conversation with Dick Cheney.

"Is it a bad thing that the President is a nitwit? No, it isn't. It is a good thing. Why? Because it's his greatest strength. This is a nation of nitwits. They love this guy. That's why they elected him. He's just like them. He's average. He's ordinary. He doesn't have original thoughts. He doesn't speak in complete sentences. He can't balance a checkbook. He hates to wait. He wants his cheeseburger now. He's a bit of a bully, and a bit of a coward, and he's shallow, and he's mean, and when he screws up, he does what any other red-blooded American would do--he blames it on somebody else and moves on."

Although presented as "fiction," this strikes me as a pretty accurate description of Dubya. If it also accurately describes the American electorate, Dubya will no doubt be re-elected ...and America will deserve the continued destruction of everything good we used to stand for that will follow.

Dubya finally tells the Truth!

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."
George W Bush August 5, 04
