Slate: *'s Magical History Tour
I couldn't bear to watch shrub last night, and after reading A good reading William Saletan's piece I'm glad I didn't. A good article, definitely worth the read:

Magical History Tour
Bush can't learn from the past if he can't see it.
By William Saletan

In press conferences, TV ads, and interviews this year, President Bush has manifested a series of psychopathologies: an abstract notion of reality, confidence unhinged from facts and circumstances, and a conception of credibility that requires no correspondence to the external world.

<snip>

When the gap between reality and Bush's happy talk becomes too painful for his party to bear, he does try to close that gap. But he never faces up to the extent of his errors.

<snip>

When you deceive yourself about the past, it's easy to deceive yourself about the future.
