US Election

Thomas Friedman wrote a scathing attack on the Bush Administration today in the NY Times. You can read it here.

Let Karl know that you think this is a critical election, because you know as a citizen that if the Bush team can behave with the level of deadly incompetence it has exhibited in Iraq — and then get away with it by holding on to the House and the Senate — it means our country has become a banana republic. It means our democracy is in tatters because it is so gerrymandered, so polluted by money, and so divided by professional political hacks that we can no longer hold the ruling party to account.

It means we’re as stupid as Karl thinks we are.

I, for one, don’t think we’re that stupid. Next Tuesday we’ll see.
Not just Karl Rove, but US news media also thinks Americans are stupid: why else have they focused on the Kerry story for the better part of a week? CNN scarcely mentioned the NY Times report that the US governement had put atom bomb designs on the the Internet.
