One of them is the other on steroids. (I can't tell which one.)

I know we don`t have much in common except that maybe we would like to kill each other.
Lets just slowly back off , keeping our hands in plain site.
Remember the guns are drawn from both sides , so no sudden movements.

reciprocal narcissism of small differences

Because both Bush and Chavez deeply hate each other, this represents what Freud called the narcissism of small differences:

Freud coined the phrase in a paper titled "The Taboo of Virginity" that he published in 1917. Referring to earlier work by British anthropologist Ernest Crawley, he said that we reserve our most virulent emotions – aggression, hatred, envy – towards those who resemble us the most. We feel threatened not by the Other with whom we have little in common – but by the "nearly-we", who mirror and reflect us.

Bingo: we hate most strongly that which we ourselves exhibit (our "shadows," usually). For me it's elitism, injustice, violence and sexism. Yeah, at my worst I exhibit all of them in some form or another.

Isn't this a tad hyperbolic? I'm just saying.

Hyperbolic?
Invoking 750 signing statements?
I don't think so.

Messenger, Glenn Greenwald has very revealing essay on the psychotic nepotism of neocons. Worth a read and a comment.

I read the essay. Very good, and thought-provoking.

Good old Freud. He had no idea he had so much in common with Nostradamus. As to the interesting picture, I submit that Chavez would be more likely to be kissing Bush's ass, if only Bush were smart enough to realize that Brazil would make a really, really, good friend, as opposed to an enemy. But then that would be asking too much of Our Leader and Deputy Leader Cheney.

That was a great essay vigil and a good comment Skip.
