What they're saying about W

"The hubris-filled megalomaniac in the Oval Office has promised the world war without end." -- Paul Craig Roberts

"George Bush is a very simple, very violent person with very extreme views, as well as being very much an ignoramus." -- Uri Avnery

"Do millions identify with Bush because he screws up?" -- Saul Landau

"If reporters only ask about stuff Shrub knows took place, press conferences would be very short affairs indeed." -- WIIIAI

"These are very, very serious problems we can blame on that moron in the White House ... the US has a long history of murders and failed coups and the more aggressive Bush and the neocons get the bigger the backlash they will get, not only from Venezuela but also throughout Latin America." -- Bob Chapman, from an article e-mailed to me for which I don't have a link, writing about the oil arrangements that Venezuelan President Chavez has been making with the rest of South America, and with China.

And, finally, check out the first minute-and-a-half or so of the Daily Show from Monday (click on the picture above "Phoner"). Bush spoke to an anti-abortion rally in front of the White House--by phone. Jon Stewart sums it up: "Regardless of your position on this controversial issue, it's good to know that on an issue that our president feels strongly about, he has the moral courage to literally phone it in."
