And Bush is on an endorphin rush?
So says his cheerleading squad, anyway, which, as James Wolcott notes, is just a bit disturbing.

This guy, our President, deals with bad news by pretending it doesn't happen -- well, that's one problem. He constructs his own reality -- which is fine, when you're a rich man's son messing around with a baseball team, and probably not so fine when you're running a world power, but okay -- but his attitude toward death is seriously messed up.
It's like he doesn't actually understand that when people die, they're really dead.
The famous incident where he mocked the woman on death row, imitating her voice as she begged for her life.
The way he's treating the death of our soldiers in Iraq as though they're not happening, as though they're just political noise or something.
The way he thinks bombing Iraqi women and children to pieces is just no bid deal -- it's like all of this is just some distant game to him.
Like death isn't real to him.
Or maybe other people aren't.
