You asked for it Impish!

Dear Impish,

Thanks for stopping by again. I'm afraid I am going to have to take issue with your statement that,

"Well no need to prove whose worse among the current crop of leaders. george will win hands down with even authoratarian right wingers and fanatics "

I can list lots of leaders that are worse than President Bush. Kim Jong-Il comes to mind. As does Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe. How about Saparmurat Niyazov of Turkmenistan? Or Ayatollah Ali Hoseini Khamenei of Iran? I could dredge up lots more examples of leaders with less-than-average respect for human rights and international law. Most right-thinking people would agree that all of these "leaders" represent a greater threat to their own people and to their neighbors than the United States. Your suggestion that President Bush is the worst world leader is pure hyperbole.

And as for "who I actually [am]" you might be surprised. Here are my results:

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: 5.63Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.15

Now, I have been pretty open and honest in this discussion. Why don't you tell me something about yourself?
