When the Loose Cannon has Nuclear Weapons
I know we shouldn't harp on this, but it is of ultimate importance, for us, but more so for our children.
What is the Boy King going to do now? We hear little giblets in the paper about catching perch (pretty big, from what I hear), building his presidential library (a man who doesn't read anything higher than 2nd grade material) and channeling de Tochqueville (as if he even knew who he was.) But what we really should be worried about is whether this man is going to do something drastic. He has already alluded to the fact that he wishes to immortalize himself.
If he were a real gentleman, if he were a real hero, he would commit seppuku. No, I'm being facetious. No, actually, I'm not.
What is this man going to do now that his empire is crumbling around him? From who will he take advice (since he doesn't seem to have a novel thought of his own?) He has blown off his father and the grey eminences of the Republican party. If he relies on Rice, Rummy and Rove, we will bomb Iran. And if we bomb Iran, the balloon has gone up.
It is much fun to surf the blogsphere and find out what is really going on. It is so much quicker and more thorough than either the MSM, dead trees, and particularly Fox (I guess, I don't have a T.V.). But it is possible that we are not focusing our efforts on preventing this border line personality from dishing us all.
However, I don't have a clue how to do that, as important as it is.
