Bush decides who's to live and who's to die

Guardian Unlimited Cartoons Steve Bell

The entire US government apparatus is convulsed in a battle to forcefeed a brain dead woman indefinitely, and keep her alive. They don't give a damn how many of their soldiers, British and Iraqis are killed. Bush should be in an insane asylum not in the White House. This is the moron that Blair sold Britain out to. This is the man who condemned more prisoners to death than any other contemporary state governor, and spent an average of ten minutes per case before deciding.

Epitaph on a Tyrant

Perfection, of a kind, was what he was after,
And the poetry he invented was easy to understand;
He knew human folly like the back of his hand,
And was greatly interested in armies and fleets;
When he laughed, respectable senators burst with laughter,
And when he cried the little children died in the streets.

--W. H. Auden

That's too good an epitaph in this case, a better one would be, 'Here lies a shameless mass murderer, may he burn in Hell.'
