This is the Truly Scary StuffYesterday, Rumsfeld "accused critics of the Bush administration’s Iraq and counterterrorism policies of trying to appease "a new type of fascism'." Cheney has been saying these types of things lately, too, and Bush said yesterday that public anger over Iraq won't change his policy.
Now, this is the truly scary stuff that is going on in our country today. Scarier than any terrorism. Because its the antithesis of what our country is supposed to be about. When I hear these out of touch wackos say stuff like this, it makes me so scared I think about leaving the country.
What's even scarier is that it took me looking at 3 news websites and digging 3 levels down in the third before I could even find the Rumsfeld story. The news media is too obsessed with JonBenet and polygamists and other crap to report on how these guys are corrupting the America we thought we knew.
Its interesting how people you wouldn't have thought would ever criticize Bush are now doing so -- Joe Scarborough called him dumb, even Chris Matthews says Bush's moral compass is out of whack. Therein lies my only hope that they won't get away with what they are trying to do.
