    may not have told Bush what to say but he refuted and mocked most of what Bush did say. He was the one voice in a dark time who had the guts to publicly undress the emperor.  It's a democracy folks and no pol is above criticism, in fact it is healthy. When we get to a point where the lauding or criticism of an elected official by both sides is more important then policy and agenda we end up with dueling  propagandist's rather then any meaningful political discourse.

      is merely a function that public officials are, collectively, our employees.

      Bender's statement is simply bizarrely amnesiac, but it's not unique.

      For example, a while back, it was claimed on DKos (I can't remember by whom) that the phrase "public servant" was racist when applied to Obama, because it evoked slavery, and the person claiming this also claimed to have never heard the phrase "public servant" before. Seriously?
