A nation in chains
...the land of the free imprisons more people than any other country in the world – both in raw numbers and as a percentage of its population.
The death of the nation-state

...the former rock ’n’ roll singer, who may have exhausted his limited supply of wisdom half a century ago with a lyric like "Awopbopaloomopalabopbop!"
His status as a rock singer is dubious and this like much of his material was pinched from stars like Little Richard (who has charisma to burn). He stands in the same tradition as (reference for ‘Simpsons’ fans) Pious Riot, or as P.J. O’Rourke put it, ‘I found the Lord and lost my talent’.
...the "bad guys" from central casting, those Arab terrorists...
What, no comments in this blog on United 93?
Really, you would have to conclude by now that the people still supporting Bush are even dumber than he is, or dumber than he appears to be.

I will, however, plead guilty if someone wants to accuse me of being a Susan Sarandon conservative. Sarandon, in a political advertisement that the Cable News Network declined to run in the patriotic fever leading up to Bush War II, raised the question all America and especially members of Congress should have been asking: "Before American boys start coming back from Baghdad in body bags," she said, "I want to know what Iraq has done to us."
