The argument against Bush in a really well-crafted nutshell

It seems that Bush-hating usually goes one of three ways: a tirade of invective, a sad head shake followed by a change of subject, or a string of semi-random phrases and sounds ("Bush, he...I can't believe he...GAAAAAAHHH!!!").

But that malaise of semi-coherence ended for the haters today, when Washington Post op-ed columnist Richard Cohen encapsulates it in one dynamite sentence:

"Bush has been studiously anti-science, a man of applied ignorance who has undernourished his mind with the empty calories of comfy dogma."

Yes! Yes! Comfy dogma - that's it! Want to end AIDS? Don't have sex! Want to quit drinking? Go to church! Want to stop global warming? What?!? It was two degrees below average yesterday! Want to fight terrorism? Start shooting!

I think Cohen may be an op-ed superstar. That'll get him some ladies. Some well-deserved ladies.
