Worrying about Election
This election is a test of the silent majority.
I know I am certainly very silent. Living in Northern Virginia (a virtual mecca of liberals-- dominating all school boards, county boards, etc). and working in Washington, DC (which despite the media portrayal that Republicans own Washington) I know what being silent is all about. The trade associations, the government agencies, the advocacy groups, and on and on, they are all Democrats. Any party I go to or event of any kind is filled with Democrats-- and of course they are always able to be vocal. You can say your a liberal Democrat and it won't hurt you one bit for any job in Washington, DC. But, say your a conservative and the whole office will question you and people will wonder whether you read the papers and watch CNN and understand the world, etc, etc.
This election is a test of whether Republicans just had an accidental moment in power before being run over-- again-- by the Democratic MACHINE. For decades this town was dominated by Democrats-- and once again they are on the verge of taking back control of THEIR city.
Unless the silent majority speaks up at the polls. I will be speaking up with my 1 vote.
I don't know if I will ever understand what it is in people that makes them wake up every day and hate George W. Bush with everything in them
Day after day after day... year after year... whatever new headline comes out... whatever new story that has a Bush is horrible meme and manta...
These people just keep up their unending hatred. They eat up every story. And the journalists and editors have the same thing in their being. They can't wait to write another of these stories. They meet and carefully craft the wording for the next big headline.
