Through the magic of the Internets, I just finished watching Recount by HBO. It's fantastic and enraging all over again. One of the things I wonder, after watching it, is if James Baker sleeps well at night. He played a pivotal role in arranging the Bush coup. 8 years later, he's the author of at least one official document repudiating, well, everything about the Bush Presidency. You could be forgiven for thinking, hey, maybe Baker doesn't think President Bush was such a good idea after all.
When Baker dies he'll have to answer for what he, and others, did to put Bush at the hands of the world's most powerful killing machine. And now that it's gone like a thresher through hundreds of thousands of lives, even if Baker is allotted even a small, infinitesimal fraction of the guilt for those killings, I doubt a God of justice would put him on the up escalator, if you know what I mean.
