Read It While It's Hot

Jane Smiley has some words of wisdom for the recent GOP deserters who just now, this very minute figured out Bush is full of shit.

You really, really need to read the whole thing. This is said often on blogs and then hardly anyone bothers to follow the link and really read the piece in question but this time, seriously. Go read it.

Then you’ll understand why this part needs to be tattooed on the foreheads of every Republican voter in the land:

Now you are fleeing him, but it's only because he's got the earmarks of a loser. Your problem is that you don't know why he's losing. You think he's made mistakes. But no. He's losing because the ideas that you taught him and demonstrated for him are bad ideas, self-destructive ideas, and even suicidal ideas. And they are immoral ideas. You should be ashamed of yourselves because not only have your ideas not worked to make the world a better place, they were inhumane and cruel to begin with, and they have served to cultivate and excuse the inhumane and cruel character traits of those who profess them.

That way, when they talk to some other recent refugee from the GOP-induced coma, they will know the truth and never forget it. they did this through their own shortsightedness and negligence.
