It's the mythology, silly!

Congress is apparently still willing to cave to the president.

By Dan Froomkin

So how did Bush get his way with Congress -- again?
It's the mythology, silly! How come it's appropriate to note the sectarian affiliations of Them Over There, but never Us Over Here? Isn't it the least bit relevant that ALL THE PARTIES INVOLVED SHARE THE SAME MYTHOS: Life as Holy War. The Fear of Not Appearing to Fear, and thus Hate, the Evil-Doers more than your opponent is the Order of Our Day.
Myth-Jack THIS
