44. Yet another instance , also, of Democrats
falling all over themselves to get a slice of the knuckledragger vote. How many allegedly liberal Dems have come out against the drug war? Here in NM, it was right-wing/libertarian governor Gary Johnson who went on a one man crusade to stop the drug war madness and was universally derided by the state Democratic establishment, although Gov. Richardson has lately been a strong advocate of medicinal pot, and a buddy of mine, a very liberal retired judge, was the head of Gov. Johnson's commission that advocated legalizing it. But in most cases, you can't just blame this on the right wing; the Dems have been equally complicit in this madness. Letting people die for the sake of perceived political expediency is a bipartisan strategy when it comes to drug policy.
