The Wisest Fool in Christendom

As the years go by, George W. Bush begins to resemble King James I of England (and VI of Scotland).

It was said of King James that he was the "wisest fool in Christendom" because he "never said a foolish thing and never did a wise one."

Mr Bush's words and deeds are totally disconnected. He spoke eloquently of the rebuilding of New Orleans but never raised a finger to help. He talked of making sacrifice in Iraq but never did anything to impose those sacrifices on Americans except for those in the military and their families.

And Mr Bush certainly believes in the "divine right" of Presidents.

What a disconnect; what a wise fool!

It was Charles II who "never said a foolish thing etc..."

Would that be James VI of Scotland and Ist of Britain he was referring to, by any chance?
