Bob Herbert's anger
over the election overwhelms him and he says what's really been on his mind: Those who voted for Bush are just too dumb to know any better.
I'll let John Wiley Jr. of Midlothian, Va. respond for me in a letter to the N.Y. Times:
"I quickly related to the sense of bewilderment and alienation many New Yorkers feel in the wake of President Bush's victoty.
"I, along with tens of millions of other voters, felt the same way when our fellow Americans chose Bill Clinton as president not once, but twice."
It's OK, anyway: Bush's henchmen will soon pick Herbert up in the middle of the night and we'll never have to read his columns again.
