Bats in the Bush Belfry?

by Paul Levy

Psychologically speaking, Mr. George W. Bush is what is called a ‘malignant narcissist.’ A narcissist is someone who has become hypnotized and entranced by their own inflated self-image. They have become so self-absorbed that not only are they not in genuine relation with others, but they relate to others (including the environment) as objects to satisfy their own need for self-aggrandizement. A ‘malignant’ narcissist, however, is a narcissist who reacts sadistically to others who don't support and enable their narcissism. For example, instead of self-reflecting and taking in critical feedback, the Bush administration reacts with ruthless contempt for anyone who disagrees with them. Like a mean and cruel-spirited malignant narcissist, Bush and Co. deny the accusation and try to destroy the messenger. Ultimately, a malignant narcissist wants to annihilate anyone who in any way threatens their illusory self-image and self-serving agenda.

Republican lightbulb joke

How many members of the Bush Administration are needed to replace a lightbulb?

The Answer is SEVEN:

one to deny that a lightbulb needs to be replaced
one to attack and question the patriotism of anyone who has questions about the lightbulb,
one to blame the previous administration for the need of a new lightbulb,
one to arrange the invasion of a country rumored to have a secret stockpile of lightbulbs,
one to get together with Vice President Cheney and figure out how to pay Halliburton Industries one million dollars for a lightbulb,
one to arrange a photo-op session showing Bush changing the lightbulb while dressed in a flight suit and wrapped in an American flag, and finally one to explain to Bush the difference between screwing a lightbulb and screwing the country.
"Paul Levy, in The Madness of George W. Bush, does a brilliant job of deconstructing the invisible spiritual and cultural ways that corruption flows into our souls and our minds -- rooting itself in our day to day lives in a manner that can cause an entire culture to go mad together. This book is an invaluable contribution to creating the change of hearts and minds that is the pathway to true evolution." ~ Catherine Austin Fitts, Former Assistant Secretary of Housing (Bush 1)

Jeff Gannon is in the image below, he is the RNC hired "reporter" who is/was a male hooker while working at the White House and lobbing softball questions to Bush during any rare press conferences he did have. Unreported, unaccountable and quite questionable,
he continues to move below the radar of the mainstream media.

Molly Ivins:

'Could lunacy explain Bush's policies?'

Molly Ivins, AUSTIN, Texas--I hate to raise such an ugly possibility, but have you considered lunacy as an explanation? Craziness would make a certain amount of sense. I mean, you announce you are going to militarize the Mexican border, but you assure the president of Mexico you are not militarizing the border. You announce you are sending the National Guard, but then you assure everyone it's not very many soldiers and just for a little while.Militarizing the border is a totally terrible idea. Do we have a State Department? Are they sentient? How much do you want to infuriate Mexico when it's sitting on quite a bit of oil? Bush knows what the most likely outcome of this move will be. He was governor during the political firestorm that ensued when a Marine taking part in anti-drug patrols on the border shot and killed Esequiel Hernandez, an innocent goat herder from Redford, Texas. That's the definition of crazy--repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting a different result. ...
The consistent pattern that runs through all these problems is the failure to distinguish fantasy from reality. Mexican immigrants keep crossing the border because they can get jobs here--and most of those jobs are provided by companies whose CEOs support George W. Bush. That's where he can have an impact on the problem, should he choose to do so.The $70-billion tax cut is part of a continuing right-wing fantasy going back to the Laffer curve. Of course, clinging to demonstrably false economic precepts is understandable when you benefit from them, but at some point reality does intervene.As for the Iraq fantasy and those who pushed it on a reluctant country through lies, disinformation and bending intelligence--isn't there a law against that?
