This is so depressing I can barely bring myself to write about it. I thought we elected the Democrats to protect us from neocons running roughshod over our civil rights. Instead, the dems are turning out to be just as much rubber stamps for the Bush administration as the Republicans.
You know, I'm really starting to wonder if the conspiracy theorists may be on to something. With Bush's popularity ratings at historic lows you'd think politicians would be falling all over themselves to distance themselves from him, but they aren't. Congress has yet to stand up to the administration in any meaningful way. Both John McCain and Barack Obama have actually reversed positions in order to align themselves more closely with Bush. Why? What the bleep is going on here?
