    In 2000, Bush had no experience whatever in national security or foreign policy, nor indeed any experience in Washington. Bush was both naive and ignorant in the extreme about world affairs.

    While I'd quibble about "the lack of experience in Washington" - W certainly learned from his father's time how to exploit all the worst tendencies of the place - the rest of it remains as true today as it did on Day One.

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