365 days from today we, and the world, will be rid of George W. Bush; relieved of the willful ignorance, stunning incompetence and muscular stupidity that has characterized this administration – the greatest failure of leadership in the history of the United States. We – you and I – are responsible for this, by our complacency and carelessness in allowing a man of such meagre talent to be elected to the most powerful office in the world. George Bush could never get the “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” aphorism right. We the people cannot afford to follow his example in that regard. The elections of 2008 represent our chance to clear the decks of neocon idiocy, and dedicate our energy, capital and creativity to rebuilding America. There is no excuse for not voting in November. There is no excuse for allowing a neocon acolyte anywhere near the levers of power.
