Jane Smiley's "Notes For Converts"

Bruce Bartlett, The Cato Institute, Andrew Sullivan, George Packer, William F. Buckley, Sandra Day O'Connor, Republican voters in Indiana and all the rest of you newly-minted dissenters from Bush's faith-based reality seem, right now, to be glorying in your outrage, which is always a pleasure and feels, at the time, as if it is having an effect, but those of us who have been anti-Bush from day 1 (defined as the day after the stolen 2000 election) have a few pointers for you that should make your transition more realistic.


Awesome.

It took me a week but I finally read all of this! Sheesh. What a rant. And well, not very inclusive, but damnit... the Republicans that have "turned" and changed sides haven't done so, really... they're just angry that they "got their turn" and ended up getting so screwed in such an obvious embarassingly alienating way by Bush.

What I think a lot of them haven't realized, and Smiley points this out: they got screwed not because of mistakes made, but because THIS IS WHAT THEY VOTED FOR. There's such a huge disconnect between what people think they are voting for and what they are actually voting for.
