Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Laugh? It makes me want to cower in terror, considering how numerous/influential these people are. Is that how Bush's irreductible base of 30% thinks?

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman

Well, in the light of the developing sex scandal in Washington we now know what a republican is doing when he's saying "Oh god...oh god..ooooooh goooooood !!!"


Slightly off topic : We now find out goergia10 from kos is just 23. Knowing what a know-nothing nit I was at that age I now feel totally inadequate.

I was such a sheep at that age. Then again, that was still before 9/11... Within those 4.5 years I've been politicised rapidly and put on a steeper learning curve than I used to be on. It's the difference of living within the comfort zone bubble and confronted without one. For even younger people (such as georgia10) seeing their country wracked step by step, I can imagine this process is even larger. Who knows that on the long run, the destruction that is the Bush government may give birth to a re-invented progressive movement... It took 13 years after the Russia-Japan wars early twentieth century that the political trembles introduced then spelled the end of the Tsar.

I'm speculating way out of my expert terrain, of course, but it's nice to speculate positively.
