W.'s Head in the Sand by Maureen Dowd
Using "President Top Gun['s]" most recent staged military speech as a backdrop for her commentary, Maureen Dowd of the New York Times offers a humorous (if it wasn't so depressing) account of the White House fantasy world. "In the Christmas spirit," she writes, "the time has come for the reality-based community to reach out to the White House."
I would argue that the "reality-based community" has been reaching out to the White House from the very beginning. Unfortunately, Bushco's little corner of the world precludes reality in favor of "we-make-our-own-reality-so-buzz-off" thinking. That aside, Ms. Dowd's article is bitingly accurate in it's portrayal of our very real worst nightmare (Bushco--but I didn't really have to tell you that, did I?) and it's very real consequences.
