Everybody Lies (Except The Donald). Really??

The Donald has now declared that G W Bush lied to get us into the Iraq war.


I was never a fanboy of that war.  I think that John Paul II's warnings about taking out Saddam were based on much better on-the-ground humint and a far, far, better understanding of the geo-politics (and of Mohammedanism) than G W Bush had; and I think that Bush made a judgment call which was not well-founded.

But G W Bush is not a "liar," particularly about Great Matters such as war.

The Donald is apparently a resident of wacko-ville.  This happens to people who are oversaturated with adulation (see damn near anyone on the Hollywood "A" list, e.g.) 

In the case of The Donald, it's self-adulation.
