This indelible image is down around the 12th paragraph of a fifteen-paragraph piece by George Anne Geyer, on the cancer-like spread of terrorism (or insurgency, or jihadism) through the middle east thanks to US foreign policy:
[B]y all reports, President Bush is more convinced than ever of his righteousness.
Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated "I am the president!" He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of "our country's destiny."
And this isn't the only time something like this has happened. It's not even the only time his alarmed "friends from Texas" have leaked a story like this. It's not even the only time this month his friends have leaked a story like this.
