GWB vs. BTK

After watching our sad excuse for a president take over thirty minutes to explain yet again that all the people we are fighting are the same types of bad guys with the same ideology, they hate us for our freedom, that we are fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here, that things are going good in Iraq, that it's hard work spreading freedom and democracy, and that we aren't going to leave until we are done, whenever that is, I was suddenly struck with a sense of deja vu.

Yesterday, those of us living in Wichita were treated to the garish display of a little over forty minutes of Dennis Rader, also known as the BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) serial killer, confessing to his crimes and including many hitherto unknown or undisclosed details of his ten horrendous homicides.

Both men, Rader and Bush, exhibited numerous similar behavioral traits, and their presentations were eerily similar. Both men tried to act is though they were utterly certain of themselves and both seemed to be desperately striving to convince their listeners by their sheer insistence that the way they perceive reality is the way it actually is. Both fell somewhat flat. I suspect more and more every day our simian "commander in chief" is as big a sociopath as Mr. Rader, the murderous dogcatcher.
