Am I obsessed with President Bush? Almost certainly. What I find most consistently startling is that the lies told by his administration are so huge and so spectacular, that most people don’t even recognize them, simply because congnitive dissonance prevents them from believing that someone they trusted enough to vote for could act the way the President does. The Decembrist (who I seem to link to all the time), does a good job of explaining the degree of dishonesty in the current budget.
