It's cold and rainy here.
On NPR this morning, the caster said, in a very chipper voice, that people exiting the polls said they were voting for Bush for "moral" reasons.
No doubt that's true, so long as you're defining "moral" as "xenophobia," "homophobia," "war-mongering," and extreme hatred of those who don't act like you. Here in Arkansas, for instance, we voted for the amendment against gay marriage by a margain of something like 70% -- because, you know, letting gay people marry is so immoral.
It's a democracy, though. It's what we signed up for. In a democracy, you get exactly the kind of government, exactly the kind of society, you deserve. No better, no worse.
No wonder I'm having chest pains this morning.
