This is brilliant 

Mark Kleiman :
[T]he flatterers of our Beloved Leader have at various times compared him to Churchill and to FDR. My first reaction to that was "Say what?" But now I see the basis of the comparison: GWB in fact incorporates the thinking of both of those great men.

Churchill, after all, said that he had "nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat." Roosevelt said that the nation had "nothing to fear but fear itself."

Mr. Bush, masterfully combining their thinking, has nothing to offer but fear itself.
Damn right. Here's hoping someone in the Kerry campaign gets hold of it.
