Rove, etc

Sometimes I am distraught, other times I realize maybe all I should do is laugh about it.

It is funny to think that the same people holding up signs and marching in protest about Karl Rove are the same ones that were outside a Hilton last month holding up signs about Tom Delay. What happened to the Tom Delay outrage? What happened to all the front page stories?

And those same protestors are out when its Bolton, Ashcroft, Owen, Brown, Estrada, Gitmo, Abu G, etc. It is funny to think how short the attention span is. As if they almost forget that they are protesting different people and things each time.

They just kind of show up at the activist office and pick up the latest signage. Who/what are we protesting today? Ok, thanks for the sign. See you next week.

Washington DC

Washington, DC can be an evil place. It is days like today that really shed light on what depths people will sink to for political advantage.

After all the Ashcroft screams of bloody murder. After all the claims about John Bolton. After all the attacks on Tom Delay, on Condi Rice, on Clarence Thomas, Janice Brown, Trent Lott, Priscilla Owens, Miguel Estrada... Now Rove.

It is truly sad all of the hatred the Democratic Party will spew. There are not this many evil people out there. To go on and on about every single one being the next devil incarnate is difficult to find words for. Many of these are surely very nice people. There is usually a bad apple around somewhere, but in my life experience the vast majority of people I run into are pretty honest, good hearted, etc. And the odds that even a 1/4 of the people listed above are really bad people is wrong.

This is what the Democratic Party has become.

Washington DC will not always be the place it has sunk to today. A new spirit is brewing in this town. And it doesn't come from where the media, or most people would expect it. President Bush has always been an outsider of the DC politics game. And it is a good thing he is in Washington.
