Buyer's remorse

~from Michael Goodwin, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer:
"Watching the freak show in Copenhagen last week, I was alternately furious and filled with dread. The world has gone absolutely bonkers and lunatics are in charge." [yes and they're pointing the fingers at us as the malevolents for refusing to bow to global warming/climate change...idiots can't even stick to their own terms]

"Even more frightening, our own leaders joined the circus. Marching to the beat of international drummers, they uncoupled themselves from the will of the people they were elected to serve." [my emphasis because this really is the crux of the issue: elected officials acting like little Bonapartes]

"President Obama, for whom I voted because I believed he was the best choice available, is a profound disappointment. I now regard his campaign as a sly bait-and-switch operation, promising one thing and delivering another. Shame on me." [yeah, that hopey-changey mantra was sooo thrilling to hear during the campaign is now quite a parody of reality, no?]

"'Time is running out,"' he says, over and again. He said it on health care, on the stimulus, in Copenhagen, on Iran."

"Washington has its own freak show and it also features Big Government theocrats." [bingo! the new world religion]

"In fact, it is a myth the fight is over health care at all. It is a vulgar power dispute between liberals and extreme liberals, with health care a convenient portal for command-and-control of 17 percent of the economy." [and we're racists and equal to slavers if we oppose this monster of a bill]
