    ...amid all the hand-wringing about how to counter Rove's strategy, here's Senator Reid to show us the way:  Tell the goddam truth.  

    The problem is not with the rhetoric of the Bush administration and the GOP.  As rhetoric goes, it's not bad.  "Freedom is on the march" would in fact be pretty darned inspiring -- if only freedom really were on the march.  But when it's code for "By the way, not only are Iraqis still being raped and tortured, but they don't have electricity in their homes anymore," not so much.

    Apart from the hardcore wingnuts, those who support the Bush administration do so because they believe the rhetoric.  The facts say otherwise.  That's a powerful weapon, if used the right way.

    "...the big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart." -- Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
