morality and the red zone

Thank you Maureen Dowd.

This little kernal pretty much sums up my dismay over the assertion and reasoning for GWB's NARROW victory:

"Mr. Bush, whose administration drummed up fake evidence to trick us into war with Iraq, sticking our troops in an immoral position with no exit strategy, won on 'moral issues'."

Is honesty and integrity somehow not equated as a moral issue???? Go figure... Just one more mysterious and utterly disturbing factor in this national nightmare we have been enduring the past 3 years and 10 months and will be asked to endure an additional 4... more... sickening... years....

The ultimate potential loser: the principle of democracy and our basic civil rights including Freedom of Speech.

As Dowd so bluntly and correctly asserts:

"The president got re-elected by dividing the country along fault lines of fear, intolerance, ignorance and religious rule. He doesn't want to heal rifts; he wants to bring any riffraff who disagree to heel."

Here's one prediction I feel reasonably safe in making, though. The opposition will NOT go silently into the night. I suspect that this is going to be the most loudly contested mandate for a President in the history of the United States. There are simply too many righteously outraged Progressives to let this administration continue along the same deluded path without questioning every questionable move it attempts to make. The President claims to be humbled and determined to represent this entire nation. Be assured that we wait to see if this time he can be taken at his word.
