  •  I picked that video more for some other things (6+ / 0-)

    Rove shows the cynical calculation and contempt common to these types; Bush demonstrates the ability to spin fantasies to rationalize what he wants to do and his grandiose self-image; Cheney demonstrates how the fear card is played. It's an illustration of the high SDO type at work.

    And all three of them are disconnected from the painful reality they've created. They don't care, unless it affects them personally. One of the motivations suggested for W was that he wanted to take out Hussein for having tried to assassinate his father H.W.

    Ten years on, have any of these people apologized for anything they've done, or admitted any mistakes? Have they given a thought to the thousands of Iraqi non-combatants who were killed, wounded, or driven from their homes? Have any of them taken responsibility for the wasted billions? Even the Tea Party is a little shocked.

    The video is a parody only because you'd never have any of those three being that explicit in public (other than W's Grand Vision snake oil) - but it's too easy to picture them saying exactly that in private.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
