Supreme Leader Bush

I'm a couple of days behind on catching this, but over at Crooks and Liars is a clip of Bill Kristol actually suggesting that Bush should be referred to as "Supreme Leader". For those of you not familiar with Kristol, he's one of the head ideologues over at the Project For The New American Century (PNAC). They're the kind-hearted braniacs who think we should quit fucking around and just take over the world by force. That's boiling it down, but that's pretty much the jist of their twisted little world view. Seriously, I wish I was making this shit up.

Back to the "Supreme Leader" crap. Admittedly, he made the crack after referring to Iran's head of state, who apparently does go by that honorific. Watch it for yourself though, he was serious, and even had a warm little smile after he let that little thought skate across his little pea brain.

I'd point out that there was a time when something like this would lead to outrage, public censure, or at least a collective labelling of this asshole, as well, an asshole. But I'm too jaded to be surprised by this anymore. It's a new century baby!

BTW, I found out about this via a silly little podcast by Twilight and Thebes. I've only heard a bit of one of the podcasts, but it ain't half bad. Mainly politics and porn so far, so I dig it.

BTW (Parte The Seconde), I found out about them via Shelley The Republican, which spouts more truthiness than even Fox News can spit out.
