Theresa Nielsen Hayden, who is wise as I hope to be someday:
Someone has to declare a dividing line. Iâ€™m doing it. After this, there are three reasons to publicly support Bush, or to insist there must be an excuse for his actions:
1. Youâ€™re stupid.
2. You know thereâ€™s no excuse, but youâ€™re too dishonest and unpatriotic to say so.
3. Youâ€™re bound by solemn oath to make a public show of supporting him (i.e., youâ€™re in the military, and your job requires it).
This follows the latest example of bald-faced lying on the part of the straight-shootin’ President who declassifies information on a whim to take revenge on those who would dare question him bring the Truth to the People. Those two trailers they found in Iraq, the ones for makin’ barely-WMD biological weapons? We know they weren’t for that at all. The President knew they weren’t, either, and then he spent a year lying about it. I mean, among the other things he was lying about.
So yeah, just sayin’. Those three reasons above are about all I can think of for making excuses for Bush, too. Have been for a while, but every day just brings more reinforcement for my position.
