A Mind Is A Terrible Thing

By now it should be fairly obvious to thinking people that right-wing neurosis consists largely in the desire for absolute power, and especially the kind of power that will license violent and sadistic fantasy. But we rarely get so pure an example of the mania as pustule Glenn Beck treated us to with his guest Michael Scheuer, a former CIA man who has apparently been unhinged by his many years of failure to neutralize Osama. Or perhaps he failed in his assignment because he was a frothing nutjob all along. But in any case he's practically orgasmic over the notion that Al Qaeda will touch off a nuke here in America and thus complete our country's conversion to the kind of Polizeistaat of his wet dreams:

"Only Osama can execute an attack which will force Americans to demand thay their government protect them effectively, consistently and with as much violence as necessary," says Santa's Evil Twin, his eyes fluttering and then rolling back as he says "violence." Of course, this kind of destruction-is-salvation thinking isn't new, it goes back at least as far as Ben Tre.

But to think, this is the kind of guy who held high rank in our "intelligence" service.
