notes on government, sports and popular culture
A further sampling of opinion:
: "President Bush isn't a conservative. He's a radical — the leader of a deep coalition that deeply dislikes America as it is." The pot calling the kettle black.
: "(President Bush) said, essentially, be very afraid. Be frightened of terrorism, and of those dangerous gay marriages, and of those in this pluralistic society who may have thoughts and beliefs and values that differ from your own.
"Tuesday's election was a dismaying sprint toward intolerance, sparked by a smiling president who is a master at appealing to the baser aspects of our natures." No, it was Americans exercising their right to vote. The outcome just wasn't to Herbert's liking.
Cal Thomas (unposted):"For conservatives, part of the thrill of this election is that filmmaker Michael Moore, rockers like Bruce Springsteen billionaire George Soros, MoveOn.org and the rest of the left-wing rabble must be wearing long faces."
I think that was on a lot of people's minds as they walked into the voting booth.
