Are the wheels coming off yet...

Richard Perle ... blistered the administration as "dysfunctional" when it comes to stopping someone from bringing "a nuclear weapon or even nuclear material into the United States."
... But President Bush, Perle emphasized, is not to blame for this sorry state of affairs. "I haven't the slightest doubt that if one could ... put this proposition to the president, he would first be shocked to learn that we don't have the capability. Secondly, [he] would immediately order that we develop it."

What an odd position for a POTUS to find themselves in. Too fascist to be embraced by most members of his own party, and not nearly fascist enough to satisfy slobbering extremists like Richard Perle. Bush's base has been cobbled together from the radical fringes of such out-of-control absolutists, fundamentalists, homicidal hawks, puritans, and other walking, talking cartoons that there is no way to satisfy them all.

The only advice left to keep stringing along these disparate nightmare visions is "Promise anything! Anything!" There isn't even a message for the Republicans to stay on anymore.
