The joke is of course all about the Id, that base of consciousness and drive that animates western people.

While eastern people are animated by, what, Pixar?


Is the opposite of a "surge" also the opposite of an "augmentation"? Condi Rice's term continues to confuse me.

Thanks for the link. You are too kind.


I didn't think I'd ever see "Woody Allen, Oprah, and the 'surge'" in the same sentence. I'm going to have to get a double latte and think about that for a while.

The key words being "perfectly self-aware." But how aware is Bush of his own psychology? And didn't we Americans have almost this same problem with Reagan? Because he he lived in a fantasyland of his own creation, and couldn't be bothered with remembering little details such as the "neat idea" of trading Hawk missiles for American hostages, then he couldn't be held responsible for Iran-Contra. That was the theory, anyhow.
