US questions global obesity plan, actually it should be the Bush administration doesn't believe that fast food promotes obesity because scientists said it. As far as they're concerned scientists say other "untrue" things like the earth is more than 6000 years old.

Most gallingly for secularists and scientific rationalists across the United States, the fundamentalist interpretation of one of the great natural wonders of the world appears to have the blessing of the Bush administration.

Because of the insanity of the Bush administration all of the brightest and most creative of the world are avoiding the US and finding more pleasant lands.

One of the more disturbing comments in that essay was how the "liberal" and "conservative" groups are sorting out from each other. Each group is becoming increasingly unlikely to interact with each other.

As that trend continues each group will have increasingly less reason care about the other. Which we've seen in the Bush administration, the actions of all those outside of his peer group are utterly unimportant to him. It is probably equally true that the fundy christians living in the middle of the country feel equally ignored by the "liberal" culture. It would actually be questionable how a unified country could exist with such radically different cultures.
