Liar of the week


I know it's only Tuesday night, but nothing is going to beat this. Oliver Stone is planning a movie on the life of George W. Bush with Josh Brolin in the lead. According to Variety, Stone wants to render a "fair, true portrait" of the President. He's off to a good start as the central question, according to Stone, is “How did Bush go from an alcoholic bum to the most powerful figure in the world?” We must assume it was a CIA plot.

GWB still has a year to totally push us over the brink. And I do believe he can do it.

These are trying times for an atheist.

This is actually a question I'd like answered (although I'm sure Oliver Stone is the one to provide it). I actually don't think GWB has the character and integrity to be an alcoholic. One moderately bad hangover in Denver and he takes the pledge. Not much of a commitment if you as me.

When reading "Arts" in that little journal where one finds all the news that's fit to print . . I thought 'hurray!!!' finally we will get the inside dish'. See also Jacob Weisberg's new book ( excerpted in Newsweek) on how that person got to where he is. It's horrifying.
