GEORGE W. BUSH, WARLORD By Ted Rall A Presidential Impostor Turns Political Assassin NEW YORK--First he appointed himself President. Now George W. Bush has declared himself God. As Americans begin their third year of Supreme Court-ordered political occupation, Bush has just signed an impressive new executive order. You may be surprised to learn that it grants him the right to order your execution. No judge, jury or lawyer. No chance to prove your innocence. One stroke of Bush's pen, and bang--you're dead.
Ted Rall is about the only one out there who doesn't mince words when talking about what Bush is doing to this country. Even some of Dubya's harshest critics still give him the benefit of the doubt on a lot of things. Why I couldn't say for certain, but it is probably because they are just unwilling to admit that he could be as bad as their worse fears suggest. Rall is willing to let his fears run rampant. We need that. If nothing more then to make it more acceptable to criticize Bush in ways that are not so volatile. I wonder how large a file Ashcroft has on Rall.
