Now I know why Jacques Chirac looked like he was scared shitless while being interviewed for an American television Sunday broadcast. It’s because he knows our president better than we do. And why wouldn’t he? President Bush has given virtually no interview or meetings with anyone who diverges from his hawkish point of view, this according to today’s “Democracy Now” broadcast on KPFA radio, 94.1 FM. And now, it’s high noon at the OK corral. Does anyone else have a terrible stomach ache?
