4:59 - "Q: Is it literally true, the Bible?
BUSH: Probably not. You know, the idea that... [trails off]"

He came SO CLOSE to saying something interesting there, and then you can almost see the remote controlled valve Rove installed into his voicebox clench shut. I choose to believe he was going to say something about the resurrection.

Also, I think that Bush comes off looking a lot less crazy in this interview than I would have expected. Dumb and inarticulate, but he also has moments of token self-reflection and even (!) a kind of faux intellectual humility. A lot of what he says about religion here are things that, for example, Hillary Clinton is also on record saying.

Compare this to the stark-raving-crazy of Palin, who definitely thinks that the Bible is literally true, that God has chosen her to lead Joel's Army, and who knows what else.

Really, this is one of the most reasonable things I've ever seen out of the guy. How is it that when he's finally leaving he comes back from the deep end?

Are you kidding? No need to pander = less pandering.

The point is that he's probably not a bad guy interpersonally. He's no better or worse a person on that level than your average Peter Principle CEO. He was supposed to just sit on a thriving economy for four years as an empty suit...and then, well...

That's seriously the bigger story here to me. Bush used to be an alcoholic? Holy fuck.

That is pretty well known, I think. It was hashed out during the 2000 elections, at least.

Well, he still has very strong faith, since he again linked Iraq to 9/11 even after all these years :(

He must be still praying to god for those WMD's to surface...

No, you idiot. That was John the Baptist.

Spoony, these stars are for you.

Bush has never come across better as a person, but I get the feeling he was coached on how to sound self-effacing. All reports are that, for the past eight years, he has been driven by stubborn unquestioning confidence in his convictions, and that doesn't track with down-home humility.
