I know it’s possible to corrupt the government and the American people even more than Bush and Cheney managed to corrupt them, but it’s hard not to give them a 10 out of 10. And, if you think about it, we had some serious problems before Bush and Cheney were selected. For example, they weren’t elected. For another, Joe Lieberman was.
What keeps me going is that we are so far improved from where we were. Yet, it’s hard to exaggerate how much farther we have to go or just how extensively Bush and Cheney screwed things up.
For one thing, they turned the Republican Party into a gibbering bunch of fools who are simultaneously frothing with hate and piddling themselves with fear. Who’s afraid of a shackled terrorist in a Supermax prison? Seriously. How did we get so many cowards in this country?
