  •  Do I hate George Bush? (4.00)
    I watched Bill O'Reily interview Ben Affleck at the Democratic convention. His first question wasn't about Iraq, the economy, Ben's next movie, or even J-Lo. It was: "Do you hate George Bush?"

    I got asked this same question by a wingnut neighbor. I replied: "My emotions are not your business. I think his policies are ruining the country."

    Let's look them in the eye and tell them we do not operate on hatred. We operate on policy, and we do so without fear and hatred, and that those who practice the politics of fear and hatred will lose, because this is America, and we will not allow them to drag it down.

    Now the question at hand: Do I hate George Bush? Of course I do. In spades. But that is my private affair, not my public position.

    "Lash those conservatives and traitors with the pen of gall and wormwood -- let them feel -- no temporising!" -- Andrew Jackson to Francis Preston Blair, 1837
