Checkmate America!

For Jane Stillwater, Bush and his Cabinet are a cabal of grandmasters playing "a very deep game" of chess against Americans.

If you want to know what is going on in America today, here's a clue: Just think of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove and their various corporate sponsors as world-class chess Grand Masters. Seen from this perspective, it becomes immediately obvious that they are playing a very deep game. And who are they playing it against? Us.

As far as I can tell, these Americans are a bunch of patzers. Where was Michael Moore? In any case, I suppose when you're playing against POTUS with God on his side, it's really hopeless. The situation is so dire that Jane even resorts to quoting Harry Potter! So we quote Harry now?

The piece was picked up by Al-Jazeera (who else?) here. Or you can read the original blog entry here.
