Nicholas Kristof indulges in a faith-based slam against atheists.
The core message is exactly the same as what's being said to the incoming Democrat-led Congress — the burden of years of excess by the Rabid Right is on you. Play to the center, and before you say anything... have a nice cup of STFU:

Tony Blair yesterday told radical Muslims that they had a "duty to integrate" into British society and warned them they could not be allowed to override what he described as the country's core values of democracy, tolerance and respect for the law.

n October, police raided a trailer home which doubled as a meth factory - and they stumbled across a treasure trove of nuclear secrets that had somehow escaped from Los Alamos. As CBS reported:
That's the setup for the punchline to the famous joke, The Aristocrats! Now, it may be that with the Iraq Study Group, the long-running and incredibly vile "family act" that the Bush malAdministration has been putting on for the American people is about to reach some kinda awful climax and punchline--"The Aristocrats!"--as well. We can only hope. Read more about "That's a hell of an act! What do you call it?"
So a popular topic in the ether now that we've got a Democratic congress: should Bush be impeached? I'm going to a discussion on Sunday led by various progressive groups (Code Pink, AfterDowningStreet, etc) on the topic, and I wonder what strategy people will end up advocating. Your thoughts?
