KSR Calls It Like He Sees It

Kim Stanley Robinson Interviewed in the Guardian
KSR is a little more rambunctious than usual in this interview. You can tell he's as pissed off as the rest of us about the incompetence and mendacity of W's administration (and their apologists):
"And in terms of the president, there are similarities, but I wanted mine to be much nicer. The current guy is worthless, probably the worst president in American history. There's a sort of stupid, small-minded meanness - a pathological assholery - to him. I think he likes doing bad things. And I think a fair amount of his base approves of that resentment - against the idea of progress, against the future, against the rest of the world ...

"It's heads-down time over here. Now we're in it, and it's a godawful point in history, but I cross my fingers for an honest election in 2008. There is a lot of awareness in the States of the severity of the situation, and maybe this hurricane will foreground it again - another obvious sign that there's a problem. On we go."
