I've been pretty good about not
posting stuff about the US election, but this is too good to pass up:
The fairer question about Mr. Bush is not whether he has the intelligence to be president but whether he has the intellectual curiosity. He seems exceptionally unreflective, impatient with the world of ideas, uninterested in some of the nation's key political debates. Characteristically, he does not believe in evolution ? he says the jury is still out ? but he does not actively disbelieve in it either; as a friend puts it, "he doesn't really care about that kind of thing."
Sigh.Posted by Bill Stilwell at October 31, 2000 12:00 AM
