Toward A Homeopathic Theory Explaining The Actions Of The Bush Junta
In order to try and understand the Bush/PNAC mentality responsible for things such as this and this, religious mania is often invoked. But while Bush is always more than happy to throw red meat to the evangelicals, I suspect that his actual religiosity is a mile wide and an inch deep. You gotta understand, the PNAC mindset is aligned with the mindset of buccaneering COOs everywhere. This mindset states, in accordance with homeopathic principles, that the cure for stupidity is EVEN MORE stupidity. Company in debt and can't turn a profit? Leverage even MORE debt so you can take over another company -- that'll fix things! Country bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan while the economy goes in the toilet due to war debt and tax giveaways for the rich? Invade ANOTHER country -- that'll fix things! Until someone finds a better explanation, this is the one I'm running with.
The one flaw in the characterization of Bushco stupidity is that homeopathic cures involve very small doses. No one could accuse Bushco of small amounts of stupidity.
They're SURE to get it this time...
