One More (Last?) Bushism



From the Huffington Post:

[George W. Bush] said it will be fun to write [a book] and that "it's going to be (about) the 12 toughest decisions I had to make."

"I'm going to put people in my place, so when the history of this administration is written at least there's an authoritarian (emphasis added) voice saying exactly what happened," Bush said.

"Authoritarian" he says.... W. used, Freudian slip or not, the word "authoritarian" to describe his own telling of the story of his administration. It's apropos he use the word "authoritarian" given W.'s and his administration's disregard of the Bill of Rights and the rule of law. It'd be funny if it wasn't so damn sad.
