Hero: Robert Fisk
He is not afraid to tell the truth, however unpleasant. His serious sincerity redeems the profession of journalist from the dishonour inflicted by the tabloids.
Villain: George Bush
This illiterate buffoon cheated his way into the White House with the help of his well-connected family and friends. Having dismally failed to anticipate or prevent the atrocity of September 11, he spent the rest of the day zigzagging around the country like a jet-propelled chicken. His personal cowardice was mirrored in the country at large, and he fanned it to his advantage in the mid-term elections, and now, to foment an unprovoked war that has nothing to do with terrorism and everything to do with oil. His record on the environment is as appalling as you would expect. Bush is rightly despised throughout the world, and it is humiliating that Britain is seen as his only ally.
В общем, подтверждает моё мнение о Докинзе (резко отрицательное). Конечно, он в принципе может писать полную чушь о политике и быть при этом замечательным учёным (case in point: Хомский). Да я и не могу судить Докинза-учёного. Но его популяризаторские книги об эволюции и дарвинизме вызывают у меня отвращение.
