The more I read Orson Scott Card, the more I respect him.

His latest op-ed? Let me quote a snippet:
Instead, their platforms range from Howard Dean's "Bush is the devil" to everybody else's "I'll make you rich, and Bush is quite similar to the devil." Since President Bush is quite plainly not the devil, one wonders why anyone in the Democratic Party thinks this ploy will play with the general public.

There are Democrats, like me, who think it will not play, and should not play, and who are waiting in the wings until after the coming electoral debacle in order to try to remake the party into something more resembling America.

So rational. Ok, while I'm at it, let me throw in some more political links.

Dennis Miller has an interview with Time magazine, and here's a quote:
I'm left on a lot of things. If two gay guys want to get married, I could care less. If a nut case from overseas wants to blow up their wedding, that's when I'm right. (Sept. 11) was a big thing for me. I was saying to liberal America, "Well, what are you offering?" And they said, "Well, we're not going to protect you, and we want some more money." That didn't interest me.

Read the whole interview, there are some good other snippets.

Exactly why I was so pro-right during the war. I'll probably head back towards the left now that the war has cooled off. This is something the Democrats are losing out - there are so many "swing" voters like me who do believe in defending our country but will coincide with the Democrats on *some* of the social issues. They need to stop bashing Bush (who I do like) and start focusing on their strong points. Howard Dean is the epitome of what I hate. He's all about bashing Bush and trying to gain an political edge by pointing out his predecessor's supposéd faults.

Of course, maybe I'm just a Republican at heart. There's a new term coming up for people like me - "South Park Republicans" - it's an interesting definition that I do see a lot of people calling under.
