I got your crazy right here.

While the Huckster might be the odds-on favourite to win the latest version of “Who’s the Wackiest Republican?”, he’s downright sane when compared to teh President. Via ThinkProgress:

Speaking before the Republican Governors Association yesterday, President Bush took a moment to predict the future, claiming Americans will ultimately be thankful for his foreign policy decisions:

I believe 50 years from now, people will look back at this period of time, and say, thank God the United States of America did not lose its faith in the transformative power of liberty to bring the peace we want for our children and our grandchildren.

And I believe that 50 years from now, people will still be wondering how a man this catastrophically stupid managed to win not one, but two presidential elections. Comments section now open for your favourite conspiracy theories.

Well, he DID transform liberty in the USA.

And, it is peaceful knowing that the government is watching everything that you do, listening to all your phone calls, and that the screams from Gitmo can't be heard as far away as your house in the USA.

The W Factor:

Hackable Diebold voting machines + Karl Rove = 2 terms for Georgie.

Yes, it's all about the Diebold.

Just because they gave the mid term elections away to allay suspicion, doesn't mean the basic insecurity has been resolved.

Compare this with how payment systems work, where a) the card companies have a huge incentive to ensure they work fairly and b) where every card holder can check their statement and know their transaction was processed correctly.

Part of the attack on reason all over the place is to encourage having "faith" in Diebold and others.

Just like peer reviewed science is scorned while made up stuff is treated as worthy of equal consideration, no peer review of the software is allowed, yet we are expected to accept it and not worry our pretty little heads about it.

I'm getting so tired of these people asking us to trust them about actions they claim will pay off only after most us (and them) are dead.

I'm thinking 50 years from now we'll still be wondering why we can't pull out of Iraq, why this US's official language is Chinese, why we're all working for 48 cents an hour, and why Dubya's head is in a jar, refuses to die and is still talking about how people will thank him for his Presidency.

Pacts with the devil are like that after all. Just ask Rasputin.
