Oedipus Wrecks

AMERICAblog reports that Shrub is cracking under the pressure. No surprise there.

But this is interesting. He says Drudge reports:
sources said Mr. Bush maintains daily contact with only four people: first lady Laura Bush, his mother, Barbara Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes. The sources also say that Mr. Bush has stopped talking with his father, except on family occasions.

What do those four people have in common? Well, here's a hint: none of them have one; he is one.

I've ridden the Oedipal hobby horse for a long time here. Some of the dynamics here aren't hard to suss out. Who ridicules Boy Blunder? Well, the list is long, but Dad and Dad's very male circle are the ones that count. Who betrayed him? Another very long and growing list, but I can't think of a single prominent woman on that list.

So our boy George, who proves time and time again that he will draw the wrong conclusion from any set of data points, seems to have concluded that men are dangerous, whereas wimmin are safe. (The Harriet Miers snafu takes on new meaning in this context.)

Laura, Condi and Karen all seem to be just what the doctor ordered; sycophantic idolaters worshipping their very own Lord of the Flies.

And then there's Mother. Imagine the fireworks if someone were to interview the famously sensitive and maternal Barbara and get another juicy, emasculating comment out of her: GeeDub might just blow his few remaining neural circuits in his rush into the bottom of a bottle of Jim Beam. Then it would be "men bad; wimmin bad," and there would be no one left to trust.

An unravelling POTUS is a scary thought. But it doesn't scare me any more than what we have now.

Update: Armando @ dKos went to the same place.

Narcissistic character pathology in the midst of The Big Crash is really primitive, ugly stuff, particularly if there's a substance abuse issue involved to boot. Let's hope there are a few grown-ups on the Joint Chiefs who decide to stop giving Chimpy the real launch codes for the football.
