From an AP article at CNN.com:
I’ve been saying for months that, if Bush got re-elected, we’d have all sorts of people running around in the years afterwards throwing up memorials and renaming buildings after him, a la Reagan – even though GWB will have done far, far fewer constructive things than Reagan, and indeed, far more destructive things.
But a square in Baghdad? That’s narcissism to the nth degree.
Imagine that. A golden calf in the middle east… and one created to worship someone who claims, himself, to be a devout man, but who really only worships himself.
