Suffering over Iraq

From AmericaBlog Joe Subday has this observation
Listen, you Americans, Laura Bush wants you to know the President is suffering over Iraq. In fact, Laura told Anne Curry on the Today Show, that the American people need to know that "no one suffers more than their President and I do." No one? She's as delusional as her husband. Of course, her husband is the person who caused the suffering -- and is the one person who can end it.

I would wager that there are 3,300 families in America that are suffering more than George Bush. And, there are tens of thousands of injured soldiers who are literally suffering.
But Joe just doesn't get it. In the Bush world this country is divided into two classes, a servile class and a privileged class (see here, here, here, here and here). The Bushes, the media, political, social and economic elites are of course part of the privileged class. All those soldiers and soldiers families are part of the servile class so they don't count. Now you can understand. Among the people who actually matter, the privileged class, George and Laura Bush no doubt suffer as much or more than anyone. Once you understand that, it all makes perfect sense and Laura is being fine.

Indeed, once you understand the servile/privileged distinction, much of what has happened over the past six years makes perfect sense. The only question is, do we want that kind of a society. I say, No!
