Will the real Dubya please step forward

There was a very amusing piece in Guardian Unlimited yesterday. While poking fun at the ‘Saddam double’ theory, the story, Would the real George Bush please stand down, also draws attention to the skills and capabilities (or lack thereof) of the most powerful man in the world. A far less amusing piece appears in the same publication on the same day entitled McCarthy’s ghost. This is very worrying and a sign that the neo-conservatives do, indeed, wield considerable influence within the US political economy.
