Historians Are Shrill

A survey of historians was done to rank Dub's performance as Preznit. He didn't do too well with 98% (you can't get 98% of anyone to agree on anything can you?) of those in the survey ranked Bush's Preznitency as a "failure". One quote from the survey:

“No individual president can compare to the second Bush,” wrote one. “Glib, contemptuous, ignorant, incurious, a dupe of anyone who humors his deluded belief in his heroic self, he has bankrupted the country with his disastrous war and his tax breaks for the rich, trampled on the Bill of Rights, appointed foxes in every henhouse, compounded the terrorist threat, turned a blind eye to torture and corruption and a looming ecological disaster, and squandered the rest of the world’s goodwill. In short, no other president’s faults have had so deleterious an effect on not only the country but the world at large.”
Pretty darned good summary I'd say. Who says academics can't write? As Digby notes, she remembers the good ole' days when only the dirty hippie bloggers used to write such stuff!
