Rubbish From Dear Leader
Juan Cole has a great take-down of President Bush’s ridiculous talk yesterday on the Great War on Terror. I’d say Cole’s rebuttal is brilliant except it isn’t and doesn’t have to be because its target is such an easy one. Bush, playing on most American’s childish, grossly uninformed (read: totally ignorant) understanding of the world, misrepresents and makes up facts, confuses details and builds an army of strawmen. So Cole’s work is actually easy even if lengthy.
