13. Gonads or not, don't compare Bush to me!


History can help sort out what was Bush's major flaw, but I believe the problem is in his thought process, not his gender.

As an aside, there has been consideration to include "self-defeating personality" in the DSMs (for psychiatric diagnoses) for some time. Maybe it's time?
