    dude admits he made a mistake.

    Right now millions of our other friends and neighbors are making the same admission, according to the polls.

    I think calling all those millions of people weak, no-character hypocrites is both non-productive, and maybe untrue.

    Non-productive because it won't make them more likely to vote Democratic, which is what we really want.

    Maybe untrue, because face it, they had a fraud pulled on them.  It takes a certain amount of courage to say publicly "yeah, I was an idiot, I got conned by a no-class grifter."  

    it's true that lots of us - like you and me - saw through it.  but lots more of us didn't, and I think we shouldn't trash them when they have their epiphany -

    It's not a sacrifice to pay more in taxes so our brave boys have what they need, it's a privilege. FDR
