Amazingly enough, Glenn Reynolds still thinks that the Bush Administration runs like a Swiss clock.
Nope. Not anymore, Putz:
I like this: Leftism as Microsoft Vista — promises a lot but doesn’t deliver, and is kind of bossy. Meanwhile are rightie politics like Linux? You know, fairly efficient, but requiring more work than most people are willing to put in?
From my vantage point, the only upside to the Bush Administration is it’s pretty much demolished for all time the right’s efficiency myth. Katrina? Afghanistan? Iraq? The Bushies have replaced that old adage that the right makes the trains run on time with a train wreck. There’s nothing efficient about it.
Along those lines, there are very few things for which I am grateful for George W. Bush. One of them is that the right can never again lecture anyone on the importance of speaking proper English. The other is that the failing upwards, frat-boy-in-chief has killed for all time the “the hardest workers get ahead in a capitalist society” myth.
Let’s not forget the latest example of right wing efficiency. Reynolds must be referring to a pretty crappy Linux installation.
