11/02/2004: Gem o'the Day:
I'd like to say I learned George W. Bush is worse than I thought he was, but that really would be impossible! His smug, white privileged, right wing Christian lack of curiosity, arrogance, and contempt were literally chilling! What's so stunning about this administration is the total, overt contempt they have for everyone who doesn't agree with them. They don't even bother to lie convincingly. I mean, Richard Nixon would have at least had enough respect to plant some WMDs in Iraq. In the reflection of the non-void that is George W. Bush, Kerry, no great shakes himself, damn near GLOWED with compassion and intelligence.
