President as trickster

Oh look the President is at Camp David showing us he is thinking hard about Iraq. No wait! He’s making a surprise trip to Bagdad to show us the power of a Rove-ian Photo-Op ™. Do you feel better yet about the hundreds of thousands dead from Bush’s oil policy? I’ll be surprsed if this moves the polls a single point – if at all.

Maybe it’s because I just read American Gods, but the President is starting to remind me of Loki the trickster god.
