What's the deal?


Detail from a mural in Mexico City.

Editor - Theodore Roosevelt gave us the Square Deal, Franklin Roosevelt the New Deal, and Harry Truman the Fair Deal. George W. Bush's presidency should be remembered in history as the Ordeal.

So long as Bush is not remembered as imitating this guy...


Update: November 6, 2007
Seems Juan Cole has been thinking along these lines as well.

If Bush and Cheney are ever tempted into extreme measures in the United States, Musharraf has provided a template for how it would unfold. Maintain you are moving against terrorists and extremists, but actually move against the rule of law. [Barnett] Rubin has accepted the suggested term of "lawfare" to describe this kind of warfare by executive order.

Call me crazy, but I wonder about our future.
