If there was ever an image that perfectly encapsulates the concept of the banality of evil. While some heightened degree of psychological projection - basic empathy - is a supposed hallmark of artists, there's no doubt whatsoever that the particular subject matter chosen by Bush reflects the utmost limits of his cognition and the depths of his compassion. Poster-boy's disconnect can be attributed in no small way to his genteel, rarefied upbringing ("So, why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?").
Would that he, and all the rest of the war pigs, actually ever confront or contemplate - let alone have to personally endure - the results of their puppetry.
"I hope that before your time on earth ends, as mine is now ending, you will find the strength of character to stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness."
