Truthdig - Reports - Molly Ivins: Could Lunacy Explain Bush's Policies?

Wow, Molly Ivins agrees with me! Of course, Molly says much more eloquently than I can.
Truthdig - Reports - Molly Ivins: Could Lunacy Explain Bush's Policies?: "Posted on May 15, 2006
By Molly Ivins
AUSTIN, Texas�I hate to raise such an ugly possibility, but have you considered lunacy as an explanation? Craziness would make a certain amount of sense. I mean, you announce you are going to militarize the Mexican border, but you assure the president of Mexico you are not militarizing the border. You announce you are sending the National Guard, but then you assure everyone it�s not very many soldiers and just for a little while.
Militarizing the border is a totally terrible idea. Do we have a State Department? Are they sentient? How much do you want to infuriate Mexico when it�s sitting on quite a bit of oil? Bush knows what the most likely outcome of this move will be. He was governor during the political firestorm that ensued when a Marine taking part in anti-drug patrols on the border shot and killed Esequiel Hernandez, an innocent goat herder from Redford, Texas. That�s the definition of crazy�repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting a different result. "
