From the New York Times


From the New York Times:
In the increasingly surreal world of the White House, [Bush’s] appearance was a sign that all pretense of normalcy is gone…. by all outward appearances, Mr. Bush has been reduced this week to almost a bit player in his own government… Pleasure only starts once the worm has got into the fruit, to become delightful happiness must be tainted with poison… That evening, after the stock market had nose-dived, with the Dow Jones industrial average falling more than 500 points, Mr. Bush, his wife Laura and more than 100 of their guests dined on Maine lobster and ginger-scented lamb during a state dinner in the [president of Ghana’s] honor…

Note: Actually, part of that might’ve been George Bataille. Not sure. I’m a bit out of sorts this afternoon.
