Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I disagree. I believe Bush has gone way south of delusional, and I suspect Cheney is arrogant to the point of pathology. (I also have a sneaking suspicion that we would see Ahmadinejad as a conventional, if inflexible moderately talented politician if we understood his context better).

The Big Money people were Bush I's backers, and we've seen what short shrift Baker & Co. get in Washington these days. Maybe the oil industry is still on board, but I would be surprised if a large part of the moneyed establishment isn't feeling just as helpless as we are right now.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
