Is George 'I'm the decider' Bush a Nut?

Has George W. Bush lost his precious presidential marbles? I ask because his actual statements are getting steadily more off-the-wall. Sometimes, at least, he seems to be wearing blinders. What civil war in Iraq? What global warming? Rumsfeld? Oh, he’s fine.

Now I wonder, was what I use to see as neoconservative thinking really the early signs of dementia? Could Bush's old partying lifestyle finally be catching up with him?

Or, has he cracked because of the stress? War is hell. Today, according to CNN, Bush said:

"I hear the voices, and I read the front page, and I know the speculation. But I'm the decider, and I decide what is best..."

"I'm the decider... I hear the voices!" Oy vey!

In his piece, "Don't Impeach Bush. Commit Him", syndicated columnist/cartoonist Ted Rall writes:

"Despite the man's wacky religiosity, I have been giving Bush the benefit of a small amount of remaining doubt after five years of the most disastrous rule this nation has ever suffered. I believed that he was breathtakingly bigoted, stupid and ignorant. But I didn't think he was out of his mind. Until now."

Sometimes you feel like a nut...

You unlock this Pandora's Box with the key of Florida Recounts. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of strategery, a dimension of deciders, a dimension of cronies. You're moving into a land lacking integrity or substance, but saturated in secret voices in Bush's head and chimpanzee comparisons. You've just crossed over into...the Bush Administration.

(Insert the Twilight Zone theme here.)

See... I knew he had a radio receiver under his jacket during the debates... so he could "hear the voices"! :P

Did Bush have any marbles to begin with?
