The epic collapse of the Bush Administration

The three big Bush stories of 2007 - the decision to "surge" in Iraq, the scandalous treatment of wounded veterans at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the firing of eight US Attorneys for tawdry political reasons - precisely illuminate the three qualities that make this Administration one of the worst in American history: arrogance (the surge), incompetence (Walter Reed) and cynicism (the US Attorneys). All the three defining sins of the Bush Administration are congenital: they're part of his personality, they're not likely to change. And it is increasingly difficult to imagine yet another two years of slow bleed with a leader so clearly unfit to lead.
