I am loving Wes Clark. Have you read this Kos Diary?

Attention, Democrats

I've seen a few comments in the MSM and various blogs that the administration's disastrous performance in New Orleans will somehow chasten the Bush administration and cause it to back off from its more extreme positions.

Fat chance.

George W. Bush believes that he was chosen by God to lead this nation in its darkest hour. Every disaster reconfirms Bush's worldview. God is simply laying bigger and bigger challenges for him to confront and overcome.

Yes, we clearly see that the big problems facing our nation can be traced back to the narcissist in the White House - but Bush cannot. And he never will.

This man, and the corrupt, incompetent, shameless fools he has surrounded himself with can't be reasoned or bargained with. They must be stopped. Enough is enough.

Thanks Jason.

Yes, Wes, Jr.'s comments are powerful, and his prose is a just bit more pungent than his father's. Can you imagine the general writing, "Dear Miles O'Brien - FUCK YOU"?

I've been reading Wes Clark, Sr. this week over at TPM Cafe. One longs for the day of competent, principled leaders in government. (By the way, did you know that Wes, Sr. is vice chairman with James Lee Witt Associates?)
