Dubya’s last bet

One of my very favorite writers, Mark Morford of the San Francisco Chronicle has a mighty fine column today. As usual, it’s very funny, and also very dark. Here’s just one paragraph:

“Now, here he is, sitting right next to all the other countries at the Big Table, representing America, it's little Dubya Bush, stewing in his own juices, his poll numbers hovering right near Nixon levels, mumbling to himself, smelling vaguely of sawdust and horse manure and dead Social Security overhaul plans.”

The jist of the column is that Dubya’s last bet is to spend what remains of his dwindling political capital and nuke Iran. I suggest you read it yourself; it’s chilling.
