IMO it is the duty of journalists to drive Bush into fiercer and fiercer rage, to expose his lunacy. David Gregory has shown the way, but in the future the questions should be designed specifically to provoke Bush’s fury.
Dr. Justin Frank has said he believes the main reason the WH press corps has gone lightly so far is fear of the Resident being crazy. (Such behavior is called ‘enabling’ or ‘codependency’.) I say the Resident is crazy whether you go lightly or not, and should be exposed as crazy sooner rather than later. It is only beginning to dawn on many people that we cannot just safely tiptoe through the Bushist minefield until 2009. I’m not talking about the wars as much as I am about our civic institutions (and, as always, The Catastrophic Climate Change).
