According to Boris Johnson, Conservative mayor of London, "Democracy and capitalism are the two great pillars of the American idea. To have rocked one of those pillars may be regarded as a misfortune. To have damaged the reputation of both, at home and abroad, is a pretty stunning achievement for an American president."
But it appears that Johnson was stopping a bit short. The three great pillars of the American tripod are democracy, capitalism and impartial justice. And Bush has damaged all three, maybe irreparably.
