Bush and His Critics, a Race to the Bottom

If modern life has one true constant, it is that both President Bush and his critics will, at least once in every day, each convincingly disprove the theory that human intelligence has undergone an advancing process of evolution.

In today's Boston Globe --

PRESIDENT BUSH yesterday told ABC-TV, ''there ought to be zero tolerance of people breaking the law during an emergency such as this, whether it be looting or price-gouging at the gasoline pump or taking advantage of charitable giving or insurance fraud."

"...In the midst of this charity, big oil looted the nation. The pumps instantly shot past $3 a gallon, with $4 a gallon well in sight...."

"...If Bush really meant what he said, he would call for a freeze or cap on gasoline prices, especially in the regions affected most dramatically by Katrina...."
