Random Thoughts About the Right

Bill Bennett is not a racist.
He is also not a compulsive gambler.
Nor is he a hypocrite.

Tom DeLay is not a crook.
There is no evidence against him.
He is the victim of a partisan political "fanatic."

The Religious Right in the US are not extremists.
They are acting out Christian principles in American public life.
They really love Jesus.

The neo-GOP is not a party of fascists.
There is no perverse ideology guiding their every policy decision.
They are true to their history, their traditions, and their past leaders.

George W. Bush is not a liar.
He really does put freedom and democracy above all other values.
He is not incompetent.

And the war is going really, really well.

Thank YOU Katharine, and thanks for the gentle nudge earlier this week. I was just getting to the point where I was starting to think it was futile to talk about all the things that ail this country right now. You reminded me that at the very least my words remind others that they are not alone.

Peace,
Peter
