BuzzFlash's GOP Hypocrite Of The Week

Hey, it's Friday, which means it's time to check out BuzzFlash's "GOP Hypocrite Of The Week." And, despite the usual grueling process to narrow the selection to just one Republican hypocrite, BuzzFlash once again selects George W. Bush.

An excerpt:
Well, George W. Bush announced he now has a victory plan for the Iraq War more than a couple years late. He pulled off this dismaying public relations stunt in an imperial presidency stage setting that looked like it was borrowed from a warehouse of Mussolini props.

You alert the driver that he is going the wrong way, but all he says is "God is on our side, I'll make it go in our way because we have the biggest, best car in the world." It is too dark to look into his eyes and see whether he is stupid or mad.

Meanwhile, as cars swerve to avoid you, you see a massive garbage truck off in the distance heading your way. You frantically warn the driver, but he calmly tells you, "Jesus is with us. I will not change my route."
