Couch Potatoes

New York Magazine published a fascinating piece that meanders through various theories of Bush. John Heilemann does more, however, than create a vague air of psychobabble before allowing writers and scholars to server up a few scathing bon mots.

What is most disturbing about the article is its reflection of my own, and to quite a large extent, the electorate’s own stream of consciousness. How has a man who has been in the spotlight for so long – his entire life in some respects – remain so shrouded to us, especially a man purported to be so simple, even by admission? Some of the sixteen thoughts that follow are perhaps bit pithy, but others are nothing but excellent illustrations of how none among us knows who this is who is steering our country, or how the nation came to be at this sad juncture.
