Thanks for posting it, John K. Not only is it a powerful indictment (as though anyone who was paying attention really needed another one), but I see it as cause for optimism.
Maybe the Bush junta is awakening a "sleeping giant"-to borrow a phrase- as men and women of conscience in America remind us of the virtues that make their national character admirable, despite the best efforts of Cheney, Rumsfeld and Ashcroft to hide them.
These self-righteous so-called Christians have shown us their virtues: greed, mendacity, ignorance, violence and hypocrisy.
I sometimes think of the power-brokers, after the Supreme Court appointed the dissipated idiot-Bush, laughing their asses off at a population defending this administration while it guts their social programs, uses their taxes to reward financial speculators and feed the war machine that slurps its human sacrifices from their ranks, while chortling "You know, they really like him. They think he's one of them!"
Man, if I were American, I don't know if I could get up in the morning.
Thank God we've got Jean C., I mean he's one of us!
I hope there are enough voices in the wilderness, like that of Mr. John Brady Kiesling to be heard by the American people.
