Flour Power

John Cole, former supporter of Bush and the Iraq War, is shrill. Our obsession with terror has turned us into a nation of quivering fruitcakes. 19 men with box cutters caused America to lose its mind. Can we recover? Can we possibly get our sanity back after sinking so deep into collective psychosis?

Great post, even better comments. Since his conversion, Cole’s has become just about my favorite blog.

Looks that way, doesn’t it? But there’s an awful lot of us traitorous types, I’m afraid! Something like, oh, nearly 70% of the country at last count.

you should be purged and the words “other” and “lisa” should be replaced with “freedom” and “democracy” in american vernacular.
