  •  He was our first president elected who was so (11+ / 0-)

    fucking stupid that he did not know what was going on underneath him. Cheney and his cabal ran the f'n country. He isn't insane - he's just ignorant. And proud of being ignorant. And that is exactly what is so scary today. A large segment of our society is proud of being ignorant. And it is being encouraged by the folks who wrap themselves in the flag and the bible, those folks who promote privatized charter schools and those folks who believe that government is "the enemy".

    These folks are the true enemy of a civilized society.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      for the "did not know what was going on underneath him" stuff, but yeah...much more damage under W. than under Harding.

    •  royal certitude is insanity- denying reality (2+ / 0-)

      and rationalizing the fantasy to be able to feel that total "i'm never wrong" total confidence is a form of insanity IMO.

      that's what kings and queens are supposed to project to be able to lead the masses who need certainty to ease their fear. it's what makes despots, dictators and probably fills many positions in our modern hierarchies. and it is mostly a man thing often mistaken for testosterone excess. on the other hand the cause as explained in the youtube above probably parallels levels of testosterone.

       the king makers look for it in the leaders they choose whether they know it or not. maybe they feel the attraction themselves. that is what the GOP looks for in congressmen and senators now.

      but it's an acceptable pervasive insanity driving  the authoritarian male dominated right handed world.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

    •  ignorant and undisciplined and lazy and (0+ / 0-)

      and intellectually uncurious and self-entitled and emotionally stunted and immature and undignified and self-righteous and exalting in all of it.

      and that's just the tip of it.

      i can only hope that jackass and his cadre will get what's coming to them.
