Slow Sunday. But, as predicted, the right-wing pundits are, indeed, spreading the meme that Gore's speech proves that he must be nuts - even though he hasn't delivered it yet.

That's the way it is. Anybody who publicly tells the truth about George W. Bush must be nuts.

Anybody who doesn't think America should be torturing prisoners must be nuts.

Anybody who thinks it was stupid to invade and occupy Iraq as a response to an attack they had nothing to do with must be nuts.

Anybody who thinks we shoudn't bankrupt America for the purpose of stuffing the pockets of Dick Cheney's cronies must be nuts.

Anybody who believes in the venerable American system of checks and balances must be nuts.

Anybody who thinks that the President is the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces and NOT the Commander-in-Chief of the citizens of the United States must be nuts.

Anybody who thinks the President is not a king must be nuts.

But you know - it must be weird to inhabit a world in which all of the great heroes of this country and those who bled and died for the Constitution were all crazy, and only those who worship and don't question an ignorant, spoiled frat-boy-who-pretends-to-be-a-cowboy are sane.
