Cheney-linked "think tank" calls for Bush as Prez for Life

Here's a scary thought:

President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming "ex-president" Bush or he can become "President-for-Life" Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.

That's going to keep me awake for a few nights...

Apparently this is an article by a serious "think tank" linked to VP Cheney, whose argument is that democracy is inadequate because it requires leaders to adopt positions because they are "popular" rather than adopting positions that are "wise." This "think tank" believes that Bush's policies have been "wise" and want him to become dictator for life and eventual ruler of the world.
