"Things Are Going Relatively Well"

Chicago Sun Time Editorial:

"From the disputed presidential election of 2000 to the terrorist attacks on America on 9/11/01 to the failure to find Osama bin Laden to the quagmire of a war in Iraq to Hurricane Katrina, this has been a terrible decade, century, millennium."

"In the meantime, we're two weeks into one of the most tragic and shameful events in American history. Here, in chronological order, are some of the most memorable quotes from evacuees, politicians, journalists, media personalities and celebrities...."

Our kids/grandkids will learn about this in history class and go, "What the hell were people thinking when they elected that guy?"

yes, I've often thought of that myself reading history, and the tyrants that came to power in an electorate system. and I've thought "what idiots, we'd never do that!" Well, now, maybe, we know how this comes about. Pander to the lowest in all of us, get enough on board to start a movement, convince the undecideds with attacks by your media cronies, and bam, you're in. Then start a war, attack the opposing side as unpatriotic, take away or terrify their financial support base, and well - you win. And it's worked so well in the past, and generated so much good will and built so much splendor.
