I had always suspected he had Taliban roots. Family quarrels are the worst, they say! On the other hand there is the reptilian hypothesis, which is equally compelling.

David Icke beleives that reptiles from another dimension are controlling human society. Lots on youtube and still not as scary as someone like bush having been elected president by a presumably mostly sane population.

He managed to ask Donald Rumsfeld if he ever ate mexican babies in a way that Rumsfeld couldn't explode in (lizard) anger.
