26. It's just so hard for me to tell given the total outrage
Edited on Sat Oct-14-06 08:39 AM by NC_Nurse
I have felt almost non-stop since these assholes threw the 2000 election. I couldn't believe the sheer audacity of the Repubs then and I can't believe it now.
The Schiavo thing really incensed me being a REAL medical person and not a thug like Frist. I don't know a medical ethics board anywhere that would choose to STEP IN IT like he did.
What a f*uckin prick that guy is. A total disgrace to the medical profession.
Bush's tough talk after 9/11 made me cringe because he took all the sympathy and support we had worldwide and flushed it down the crapper - along with our reputation as a force for good in the world. Abu Garaib and Gitmo are the fetid icing on THAT cake.
Katrina was a sad testament to these bungling fools and their complete disconnection to reality and the pain and suffering of others (those not in their BASE, anyway).

It seemed like I was relatively alone in my outrage (outside DU of course) until post-Katrina. Then people started to agree with me that something was rotten in DC.

I'm still waiting for my dad though, but what can you do about someone who watches Bill O'Reilly and LIKES him? Ugh!
