It is a sure sign of serious a health problem – probably schizophrenia – or a reflection of the thinking of a petty elected municipal councilor of a small town.
These thoughts occurred to me while reading The Associated Press story “Bush will work with Democrats on Iraq”, especially the following two paragraphs:
President Bush said Monday he wants to work with Democrats on compromise legislation to pay for the Iraq war even though he’ll carry through on his threat to veto a spending bill that also sets a timetable for a U.S. troop withdrawal.

She’s not a rude person. I’m sure she’ll be polite,’ Bush said.
“He called Iran ‘a significant threat to world peace, today and in the future’ because of its nuclear weapons ambitions. He immediately amended his remarks, saying, `today is the wrong word â€” in the future. They don’t have a weapon today’.
