The good Doctor's words
Even at 1:30 in the morning Hunter S. Thompson makes a lot of sense.

<snip>
"...I got so bored and disgusted that I flipped over to watch a George Bush speech about freedom and democracy in Iraq. But that, too, was sickening. I FELT THE FEAR COMING ON. How long, O lord, How long? This blizzard of shame is getting a little old, isn't it? Just how low do we have to fall, before the voters catch on?


Indeed. How many times can a man be robbed -- on the same street, by the same people -- before they call him a man? Bob Dylan said something much like that in a tattered old song called "Blowin' In The Wind." Read it and weep, you poor bastards -- because Dylan was yesterday, and George Bush is now.


That is a morbid observation, at best, and we are all stuck with it. The 2004 presidential election will be a matter of life or death for the whole nation. We are sick today, and we will be even sicker tomorrow if this wretched half-bright swine of a president gets re-elected in November. Take my word for it. Mahalo."

1. Hunter has this amazing way of summing it up
very clearly and concisely. "We are sick today, and we will be even sicker tomorrow if this wretch half-bright swine of a president gets re-elected in November."
