Don't give up just yet - Mr. Diplomacy can still ride in from his "ranch" to save the day!!

Yeah, he's got a lot of credibility. The only thing he can do is declare victory, put up a PR smokescreen, and pray the other 40% or so of the country doesn't catch on to his criminal administration and punish the GOP.

Now, the only thing preventing a Dem sweep is that they sold out (except for Dean, Kucinich and some others) and jumped onto the war bandwagon. Morons. Guess Dean wasn't so stupid or "crazy," huh?

lores, I heard that on Hannity coming back from Philly today, too.

As far as I can recall, we didn't have a foreign force on our soil dictating our affairs while we were forced to write a constitution for a "nation" invented by another "nation" (Britain, in this case) after a world war in order to organize tribes for oil profits.

That's the difference. Well, one among many. Another is that no one in our nascent country was going to blow up anyone else's country (though anti-French and anti-British parties did rattle sabers, hilariously, given that we had no navy and very little army to speak of in the late-18th, early-19th century), or any part thereof, if failure occured.

It's a smaller globe nowadays.

We also messed our original Constitution up so much (by not facing certain uncomfortable economic and moral facts) that we had to have an amazingly bloody civil war to sort things out once and for all.

And as of the broken-up-and-passed-piecemeal Patriot Act II, we are now, once again, pre-Bill-of-Rights.

So, that's my two-pronged riposte.

Thanks for coming by! Please do anytime you like (really!)

Best, Dug
