Why Is It Always The Assholes Who Pass The Test?

To all the people who are now ambivalent about Dubya:

Welcome to our world. Or maybe the world.

We've been telling you about this man and his thugs for four years. We've had to live with our stomachs in knots, watching our country perform acts of insanity, brutality, and downright evil. And new revalations come every day, sometimes in groups.

Thing is, we tried to stop him. We tried to stop you. We said, "This guy is a liar, and a thief, and as compassionate as a Brillo pad on an open wound, and he is stripping away everything that actually makes America great." And we're going to continue to hammer at him, because this is America, and the truth will set us free, until Dubya abolishes the courts and builds his gulags and seals the borders, which is scheduled for Tuesday the 25th.

Those activism links on the right side of this page are but the tip of the iceberg. Check 'em out. Find out what's really happening in the world. Put a specific name to your ambivalence. Justify your unease.

Save the nation and the world. Before your appointed leader destroys both.

Wanted to make sure you didn't miss a wonderful quote from this article on the Palestinian elections:

"We don't need the Americans' intervention. We know who to elect. Not like them -- they elected a moron."
The way I read the article, it isn't people themselves who feel ambiguous, it's the nation as a whole. Half the people love Bush, half hate him, and the average is 49% approval.

It's a classic case of having your head in an ice bucket and your feet in a furnace, so on average you're fine.

Here's another one not to miss:

Eric quotes the WSJ as justifying torture in the name of protecting civil liberties.
