Dubya's state of mind (it ain't good)

At AMERICAblog, John Aravosis reports on President Bush's state of mind (via Republican outlets The Washington Times and Matt Drudge).

Here's Drudge: "The sources said Mr. Bush maintains daily contact with only four people: first lady Laura Bush, his mother, Barbara Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes. The sources also say that Mr. Bush has stopped talking with his father, except on family occasions."

And John's take (in part): "So basically Bush is melting down... It honestly sounds like he's losing control. And he's in charge of our country."

Yes, he is.

(Serenity now.)

Kevin Drum: "Needless to say, all of these stories are sourced anonymously and there's no telling if there's any truth to any of them. But who are these sources? At the very least, there seem to be a fair number of people who can be plausibly labeled "insiders" and who are gleefully passing along rumors of serious presidential angst. What's going on?"

Hunter at Kos: "This is a president who even in the best of times is insular, out of touch, and completely unwilling to have alternative points of view brought to him. Now, according to administration sources he's kicked out everyone else in his Oval Treehouse except for his mom, and three people who remind him of his mom?"
