Comments: Yo. Listen up!

I was over on my blog struggling to write the same sort of thing - except I was thinking about the moderates in Congress. How are they able to swallow what they've been handed by this administration? They got the tax cuts cut in half - they stopped the Energy Bill - but they were bamboozled on Iraq and now we find out they were lied to about the cost of the Medicare Bill - the same one that took extortion to get through the House. How long will they put up with this? How powerful is Grover Norquist?

There's nothing illegal or immoral about writing in John McCain or the Republican of your choice in the primary.

I think anyone willing to put up with what candidates go through today is either crazy or heroic.

I was just thinking. I hear a lot about 'grass roots' action on the Left, people dissatisfied with the party and standing up to say so, but I know there are people of intelligence, good sense, and conscience on the Right and I'm surprised that I haven't really heard much about a concerted effort to send a message of disapproval to the White House.

Not, as I said in the post, that I think the Bush Administration would pay any attention. In the unlikely event Bush/Cheney gets re-elected, they won't be eligible for re-election and a politican who isn't running for office has no reason to be responsive to the voters. B/C hasn't been that responsive up until now, so I dread to think what they'll try to push through under those circumstances.
