...in the Washinton Post opinion pages: Five Myths About George W. Bush.
Whatever faults he may or may not have had, I believe that president Bush was sincere in all that he did, and sincerity goes a long way in my book. I didn't always agree with what he was doing, but I knew that what he was saying and what he was doing correlated much better than any other politician that I can think of.
And say what you will, but anybody that was able to fly century-series fighters in the 60's or 70's was decidedly NOT an idiot.
(I often imagine the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in the cockpit of an F-106 or an F-101. And then I giggle my butt off. )
