    Talk about drinking the Kool-Aid...you most certainly are. Is that cherry or grape?

    Excuse me for not being up on my US vocab but doesn't Kool-Aid mean a particular partisan or party line?

    If that is so then he certainly isn't doing that but you on the other hand certainly could be said to.

    Let's not get too nostalgic here. Let's not be excessively merciful. You know, there have been times in recent days when I pitied Bush, when I felt bad for him because he knows that he is a disgrace and that his legacy is always going to be one of disgrace. I feel bad for all the mean things people say about him. For the 25 years he's aged in the last 8. He looks so much older now, his demeanor's changed, he doesn't seem anything like the monster he once was. He is powerless and broken. And so it seems mean to be mean to this old man, to call him a disgrace.
    But then I remember what he did to my beloved country, the damage he inflicted. And the arrogant, sneering child that he was when he had power. There is no defense for his record. And if there is redemption for that man, it's not in this world. Forgiving him is the sin of excessive mercy.

    Don't know what it is. Maybe the full moon is out. But I have had a pack of these guys trolling the crap out of me with personal attacks lately. Maybe they are just pissed off because I was right about the Neocons getting their asses handed to them. I predicted it years ago, and now it's happened.
