CLICK TO READ: The Nation: Faith and Fraud by Jonathan Schell:
Schell: "A factitious picture of the world built up by the Bush Administration over its five years in power is now going to pieces before our eyes. Great jagged spikes of reality, like the crags of the iceberg that ripped open the staterooms of the Titanic, are tearing into it on all sides. The disrespected world of facts, an exacting master, is putting down this governmental insurrection against its ineluctable laws."
The Unknown Candidate: That's the trouble with living in Fantasy Land. Sooner or later, a reality bomb comes crashing down on your head. It's the kind of Shock and Awe the Bushies never anticipated...and some of us fretted would never come.
