Some informative quotes from Lind's article - found here - http://www.lewrockwell.com/lind/lind110.html

"so the retreat from Iraq happens on the next President’s watch. That is why we still fight."

"Anyone who thinks that is too low, too mean, too despicable even for this bunch does not understand the meaning of the adjective 'Rovian.'"

"When history finally lifts it leg on the Bush administration, it will wash all such tricks away, leaving only the hubris and the incompetence."

"in reality, both parties are one party, the party of successful career politicians."

I certainly agree with the last quote. When the Dems were in power they were equally contemptuous of doing anything constructive for the citizenry(albeit in a less sleazy manner).

Right.

Our leaders are those that are good at getting elected, not actually running a government for the benefit of the nation.

And that is the fault of the electorate, for if the people valued and could recognize good government, those criteria would be one and the same.

And if we knew what good government was, we could get to work on how to recognize it.

I'm thinking we need a controlled double blind clinical trial.
