notes on government, sports and popular culture
Molly Ivins' island of optimism amid the liberal sea of sour grapes:
"The Bush administration is going to be wired around the neck of the American people for four more years, long enough for the stench to sicken everybody."
I'm glad she's taking the election so well.
Then this from that other ray of sunshine, Leonard Pitts:
"Maybe this is where America ends."
Pitts writes on: "Social conservatism is another thing entirely, a mutant strain unhindered by critical thought. These are the nominal Christians whose Bibles are so long on judgment yet so short on compassion, the soldiers of the new American theocracy who want to force creation 'science' on the schools and deportation on the Muslims....And their chosen leader is about to embark on his second term as president of the United States."
Gee, I hadn't thought about it like that. I'm moving to Canada.
