Consumer Reports

The coming Bush dictatorial theocracy | In a new book called "Cruel and Unusual," Professor Mark Crispin Miller of NYU declares that President Bush intends to impose a dictatorial theocracy on the United States.

"The regime's goal is to abort democracy," he writes, and announces his certainty that Bush wants to impose oppressive laws from the Biblical Book of Leviticus.

Talking with me during breaks in my radio studio, he unwittingly revealed the source of his bitter fears about Christian conservatives. He functions in a world where he never interacts with such people — all his colleagues and friends are on the left.

Therefore, he instinctively assumes that Bush is an unrepresentative dictator — since he lacks personal contact with ordinary people who support the president's values and policies.

Ever since the court battles over Florida in 2000, liberals have felt rage over Bush's allegedly illegitimate presidency, and now they embrace the most far-fetched, outrageous nightmares about his plans and purposes.
