The Brookings Institution: Yet Another Right-Wing Think Tank

I thought Brookings was supposed to be slightly left of center, but then their guy Ken Pollack came out in a big way for the illegal invasion of Iraq. Now, a couple more of their guys have written a book which states, inexplicably, that George W. Bush is not, in fact, anyone's puppet. I honestly don't even know what to say. All of the insider accounts of the Administration - most recently Paul O'Neill's account - paint Bush exactly the way he seems to be - dumb, uninterested, lazy, incapable, an ordinary buffoon, fully capable of being convinced of any absurdity. I don't get it. So much for Brookings...
