Hmm. Last little political message. There may be an upside to this, as long as the short term damage is somewhat reversible. As illustrated here -- all accountability falls completely to the Republicans. Any and all of the shit that doesn't clear up, or goes badly -- Bush lost his scapegoats. In a more rational world, this would be the best way to prevent a land war in Iraq -- every casualty would not only be one less direct vote, but one more body to be questioned in debate.

Maybe they'll get caught up in a war with Iraq and not have time to further damage the country with terrible terrible legislation.

Oh, it won't take long to legislate war with Iraq. After they've done that, there really isn't much to do about it except wait for victory and the various resolutions and sanctions that follow. Maybe periodically increase the DoD budget, but that's so easy to attach to the other neat budget ideas they're interested in.

Nah, I'm sure they'll be blaming Clinton well into the next decade.

Blame Clinton -- sure. Wasn't Reagan/BushSr responsible for everything until it was ok to consider that Clinton done good?

Reagan was singlehandedly responsible for ending the Cold War.

Long term downside of Dubya

Don't forget Emperor Dubya and his cohort Baron Von Ashcroft will stack the courts with conservatives.


I think it is likely that issues such civil liberties, consumer protection, the environment, free speech, women's rights, and digital copyrights will follow conservative agendas for a good part of our lifetime. I guess these sort of things happen. Oh well.
