I grant that its something of a relief to see evidence that, despite gerrymanders and Diebold, Roves "permanent majority" hasnt yet been locked in. And watching Bush contradict himself and accept Rumsfelds resignation was fun. But looking over the "Blue Wave," I just want to shout, "Where the fuck were you people in 2004?" More to the point, what do we know now that we didnt know two years ago? Nothing, of course. And now we have Roberts and Alito on the bench, the Military Commissions Act suspended habeus corpus, and thousands more Americans and Iraqis have been maimed and killed. So pardon me if Im not very gracious.
Please remember Veterans Day.
