Howard Dean has been fond of saying lately, among other things, that Democrats and Liberals are the standard bearers when it comes to moral authority and character. I'm really glad to hear that because I was getting confused.
These are the same people who would have Stanley "Tookie" Williams knighted, sainted, and generally celebrated as an exemplary human being. This guy shot at least four people in cold blood, and is arguably responsible for countless deaths by virtue of starting a terrorist group called the Crips.
These are also the same people who have blinding, irrational hatred for President Bush. This man has only liberated two countries and 52 million people from despotic regimes, put the middle east on a path toward a more tranquil future, and dedicated vast amounts of financial and medical resources to fighting AIDS on the African continent.
Thanks Howard. I see things much more clearly now.
