My interview with Howard Waldrop is live at Revolution SF — I've listened to it, and was pretty darned entertained.

Digby on Bush as President-for-Life — Featuring commentary excerpted from a conservative think tank with many prominent, allegedly respectable Republicans on the board of directors. Money shot:

President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president” Bush or he can become “President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.


This reads like an overwrought liberal parody of conservative thinking. Except it's not. It is conservative thinking, from GOP stalwarts. Are you proud of your Republican Party yet?
