On G.W. Bush

Not to sound like a broken record, but I like thoughtful, well-balanced articles like this. The writer is clearly not a fan of Bush policy, but that doesn't stop him from being able, unlike most of the media, to make a distinction between the person and the ideas. Despite disagreeing with Bush on the Iraq war and on the fundamental nature of American democracy (yes, it's a Republic, but of a peculiarly democratic character; hence I think the term appropriate) I always did think the poor fellow got a bad rap with those vitriolic "I hate Bush" and "Look How Stupid Bush Is" calendars.

Thanks to Joseph at Ironical Coincidings  for the link.
