Now, Andrew Klavan at the WSJ wants us to see George W. Bush as … [nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh] Batman!

There seems to me no question that the Batman film "The Dark Knight," currently breaking every box office record in history, is at some level a paean of praise to the fortitude and moral courage that has been shown by George W. Bush in this time of terror and war.

Yeah, he’s just like Batman. Except that Bush’s frat-boy-on-steroids presidency has turned everything it’s touched — from the "war on terror" to Iraq to the economy to disaster preparedness — to complete shit. Batman is, you know, competent. Other than that, he’s just like him.
