Mandatory drug testing for the presidency

This week Time magazine has a cover "War with Iran." That the invasion of Iraq would be such a fiasco and that Iran would be at least five years away from nuclear weapon capability suggests that this drum beat for another war can only be attributed to one thing - drug use. Seriously. What else would explain such paranoia and delusion?

It can't just be a coincidence that the generation that popularized recreational drug use has taken the reins of power in the government and media and that both are now exhibiting such high levels of paranoia, alarm and disconnection from reality.

Drug testing for presidents. It could save lives.
