No surprises really
Mr Bush's handlers are stoking war fever to try to stay in power and pushing to retain the fascist Patriot Act (still, it was lovely when some congressmen clapped when he said parts of it were about to expire) ... and as predicted here, using gay marriage to scare the Protestant religious right into voting for them again.

It's not beyond possibility that 9/11 was these folks' Reichstag fire.

Quotation to note:

He promised us a humble foreign policy. Instead, he's alienated our allies, lost the respect of the world community, and cost 500 brave young men and women their lives [in Iraq].

- retired Gen. Wesley Clark
