Bloggers - A Thousand Points of Light

During George Bush Sr's run for the presidency he was infamous for muttering the term, "a thousand points of light", as if some divine force were going to place him in power.

Instead, I see the thousand points of light as the bloggers of the world who have refused to "get over it", refused to believe the lies, refused to betray their country and today stand, steadfast in their belief in a real democracy, shedding light on the dark forces of evil in the White House.

Thank you for your individual courage and integrity in the face of one of the most evil regimes the world has ever seen. At a time when the U.S. mainstream media could at best, be called treasonous, you take my breath away, only to give it back with the force of truth and the surge of strength found in souls united.

A thousand points of lights each standing in truth to say, no more, not now, not ever - not on our watch. A particular tip of the hat to Pam's House Blend and Pam Spaulding who exemplifies the drive for truth and honesty in blogging. Thanks for being OUT THERE Pam ...when few were.

(As for Sy Hersh - HE is a medal of freedom candidate)

Seriously, is the President batsh*t crazy?

Monday, November 28, 2005

There's an excellent DKos diary up, Sy Hersh's new New Yorker article "Up in the Air" that sadly seems to confirm we have a delusional man running the country. We're talking about a state of mental illness that is not being treated, paranoia that is coddled, and aides that want to keep Bush in his altered state of reality. Read on if you really want to raise your stress level. My emphasis below...

Sy Hersh appeared on Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer about this New Yorker piece and had this exchange with Wolf Blitzer:


In this new article you have in The New Yorker, you also write this about the president: " 'The president is more determined than ever to stay the course,' the former defense official said. 'He doesn't feel any pain. Bush is a believer in the adage, "People may suffer and die, but the Church advances." ' He said that the president had become more detached, leaving more issues to Karl Rove and Vice President Cheney. 'They keep him in the gray world of religious idealism, where he wants to be anyway,' the former defense official said."[...]

BLITZER: Here's what you write. You write, "Current and former military and intelligence officials have told me that the president remains convinced that it is his personal mission to bring democracy to Iraq, and that he is impervious to political pressure, even from fellow Republicans. They also say that he disparages any information that conflicts with his view of how the war is proceeding."Those are incredibly strong words, that the president basically doesn't want to hear alternative analysis of what is going on.

HERSH: You know, Wolf, there is people I've been talking to -- I've been a critic of the war very early in the New Yorker, and there were people talking to me in the last few months that have talked to me for four years that are suddenly saying something much more alarming.(AFP/Jim Watson)They're beginning to talk about some of the things the president said to him about his feelings about manifest destiny, about a higher calling that he was talking about three, four years ago.I don't want to sound like I'm off the wall here. But the issue is, is this president going to be capable of responding to reality? Is he going to be able -- is he going to be capable if he going to get a bad assessment, is he going to accept it as a bad assessment or is he simply going to see it as something else that is just a little bit in the way as he marches on in his crusade that may not be judged for 10 or 20 years.

***Sy Hersh's intimation that Bush has a tenuous grip on sanity dovetails with recent articles about his isolation from staffers that he feels betrayed him. You may recall an earlier post, where Insight Magazine reported that the Chimperor is only talking to Condi, his mom, Laura, and Karen Hughes because he feels under siege from within, from those who are not among his perceived true believers.

The president’s reclusiveness in the face of relentless public scrutiny of the U.S.-led war in Iraq and White House leaks regarding CIA operative Valerie Plame has become so extreme that Mr. Bush has also reduced contact with his father, former President George H.W. Bush, administration sources said on the condition of anonymity.

"The atmosphere in the Oval Office has become unbearable," a source said. "Even the family is split."

Sources close to the White House say that Mr. Bush has become isolated and feels betrayed by key officials in the wake of plunging domestic support, the continued insurgency in Iraq and the CIA-leak investigation that has resulted in the indictment and resignation of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff.You may also remember the post on a BBC documentary (which the WH dismissed as hogwash, of course) that presented our dear leader telling the Palestinian Prime Minister, and Nabil Shaath, his Foreign Minister in June 2003 that he was "on a mission from God."

Nabil Shaath says: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq '?" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"That portrayal of Bush doesn't seem far off from Sy Hersh's reporting. No one is laughing now.

Trust me, if mainstream journalists are getting leaks from "anonymous officials" in the White House on Bush's "stubbornness" and "resolve" that at this point sound more like "he's crazy," the truth about the president's sanity has got to be a hell of a lot worse than anything that has landed in print.

Bruise from the "pretzel choke incident."Bush sounds completely batsh*t detached from reality. Is this "dry drunk" mentally competent to run this country if he is suffering from untreated depression and religious megalomania? Should we be considering, as John over at AmericaBlog says, the 25th Amendment? I don't think this will ever happen, unless someone catches him setting his dog on fire on the White House lawn or streaking out in public. There are too many minions that would just have the guy sedated for the rest of his presidency. Perhaps they can find a lookalike (as in the movie Dave) to sub for the feebler-in-chief.
