A Shakespearean Bush

By Michael J.W. Stickings

What is Bush's "central, tragic flaw"? asks my friend Tim F. in a thought-provoking post at Balloon Juice.

There are so many from which to choose, but: "The president is psychologically incapable of examining an issue in depth, but he is also unable to tell disagreement from betrayal. Add together the ideological reflexivity and the gilded class demand of fealty in the place of what most of us would have called loyalty, and you have somebody who is both unable to make the right decision and incapable of revisiting it."

There you have it.
