I think the handwringing explains why we still have the same presidente. I dislike Bush as well, but to say that he's the least moral person ever to have served as president of the United States is just making a big empty statement. I mean, oh boy, use of superlative: that's always a way to make a point. that's just the shit that made the debates such a shovelful. it is emotional rhetorical trickery. it's the sort of thing LANGUAGE theory called into question. personally I think Bush is driven by a moral code, and to deny that of him and of those who voted for him opens the doors of Congress wider for the conservative hordes. but okay, who cares what I say. maybe self-pity really is the solution.
