Viggo Mortensen, my new favorite actor, in an interview with The Progressive where he is asked about his views on President Bush. The entire interview is actually quite interesting and Mortensen comes across as intelligent and well informed. Something I would love to have in a leader.
“Q: Are you anti-Bush, as the pundits say?”
No, I’m not anti-Bush; Iím anti-Bush behavior. In other words, Iím against cheating, greed, cruelty, racism, imperialism, religious fundamentalism, treason, and the seemingly limitless capacity for hypocrisy shown by Bush and his Administration.
And I almost forgot to post this Mike Wallace link I had been meaning to post since last week. Whan asked what he wuld ask Presidnet Bush if he was given the chance to interview him, Wallace said:
What in the world prepared you to be the commander in chief of the largest superpower in the world? In your background, Mr. President, you apparently were incurious. You didn’t want to travel. You knew very little about the military. . . . The governor of Texas doesn’t have the kind of power that some governors have. . . . Why do you think they nominated you? . . . Do you think that has anything to do with the fact that the country is so [expletive] up?
