I don't think I've ever been more sickened by a leader than watching George W. Bush obstinately continue to tie together his folly of a war in Iraq with "the lessons of September 11th."
There was almost a justification for his doing it during the election. After all, the Bush campaigns are always marked by hardcore smears and dirty campaigning.
But the campaign is over.
And now he robs the graves of the thousands who died in Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., and New York City, by milking their memories to bolster flagging support for his corrupt foreign policy.
Republicans and Democrats should join together to insist on accountability from the Bush administration, and do everything to neutralize the White House's power to engage in more fatal, distastrous decisions.
Yes, he'll be around till 2008.
But let's do all we can to contain his deranged policies.
