(This is apparently over a week old, but hey, it's new to me...)

By way of The All-Seeing Eye Of Froomkin, Jane Smiley calls for a fairer, more nuanced view of our 43rd President:
People always comment on how stubborn George W. Bush is, or how stupid he is, or how ignorant he is, but what they don't comment on is how selfish he is.
She makes an excellent point. I find it very difficult to argue with her on this one.

Froomkin also has an excellent rundown of all the occasions on which Bush has invoked formerly-not-under-the-bus General George Casey to defend his Iraq strategery.
