"Bad" is relative!

Police raid Zimbabwe opposition headquarters

HARARE, Zimbabwe - Zimbabwe's opposition leader took refuge in the Dutch Embassy after pulling out of the presidential runoff, and the U.N. Security Council condemned the government Monday for a "campaign of violence" that has prevented a fair election.

Okay, Siegelman was prosecuted on what appear to be purely political grounds... but still, as a rule the opposition in the U.S. isn't subject to arbitrary arrest and political violence, even under W.

Yes, I believe W and his minions have done everything they could to undermine the U.S. Constitution, BUT: the U.S. is not yet Zimbabwe!

I can publish a blog called "al Qaeda in Albuquerque" without being arrested; a blog that espouses anti-Administration, anti-W views!

I can volunteer on a political campaign without worrying about a grenade being tossed in the window by the opposition.

The U.S. I know I learned in 8th-grade Civics, and I really do love it!
This U.S. is still recognizable, but has become less so with every day of W!

Stop the madness!
