I'm sick and tired of hearing the worn out GOP talking point that goes like this, "I'll admit that Bush is far from perfect, but you have to give me someone I could consider voting for." This canard offers much insight into how the right-wing folks "think" (granted, an activity kept to a minimum). They assume they're the side that needs to be catered to -- um, what about us? You comprise 51%, and we 49% -- get over the stance that it's more like 70/30 or even 55/45. I could vote for a Republican if you didn't give me the most strident right-wing, extreme, religious-scary, incompetent guy to choose from in history! You see how this works? It cuts both ways, but of course in their narrow view, it's everyone else (incl. 80+% of the world) that needs to modify and conform to THEIR perceptions. Their statement implies that we (Left) were given a likewise decent (!) & palpable alternative to choose from -- a laugh!! Go ahead, call Kerry "liberal," and certainly Bush/Cheney are HARD right, but then with regards to competence and intelligence -- no contest, you lose. Fact is, comparatively, we gave you a finer choice to consider than what you gave us. To believe otherwise is simply non-reality-based. So, enough with us not providing a fine enough buffet for you to feed from -- you offered us, and the world frankly, 3-day old pot roast, at best. Quit pretending Bush/Cheney is tenderloin filet.
