The newest example of oxyomoron to be widely distributed is Bush: Think Tank. I am perplexed to say the least. Here is a president who has made his mark as an anti-intellectual.and he is proposing a Think Tank.

We count ourselves among those who would regret to see SMU enshrine attitudes and actions widely deemed as ethically egregious: degradation of habeas corpus, outright denial of global warming, flagrant disregard for international treaties, alienation of long-term U.S. allies, environmental predation, shameful disrespect for gay persons and their rights, a preemptive war based on false and misleading premises, and a host of other erosions of respect for the global human community and for this good Earth on which our flourishing depends.

News of the Bush library has also begun to hit the late-night television talk circuit: Noting that the president's team was aiming to raise $500 million for the project, Conan O'Brien pointed out that would "work out to $100 million a book." Other talk show hosts, political commentators and comedians will no doubt find both the humor and outrage in this dishonest project. However strange as it may seem now, you can be certain that the money will be raised and the monument will be built.

Bush seldom reads and thinks even less so why the push for a think tank? Will there really be that many authors trying to praise the least praise worthy of all US presidents? It's paradoxical but then that's what makes an oxyomoron work. At least they got the moron part right.
