quote for the day

The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believed that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and murmered something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. "That's not the way reality works anymore," he continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
RON SUSKIND, quoting a "senior advisor" to President Bush

To my mind, this about says it all about the Bush Administration.

You're not surprised because you already knew that they were arrogant, stupid, delusional and monstrously egotistical.
