Bush: Torturer-in-chief

It's only natural that the sociopathic kid who blew up frogs would grow up to be the sociopathic President who tortured people. The Herald Trib:

South Africa: Gays are Alright

Sigh. I remember protesting against the old South African government, firm in my conviction that my nation would always be ahead of them when it came to civil liberties and justice. What Progress looks like:

Will Watch: Meet the new conservatives, different from the old conservatives

George Will calls the new Democrat-led Congress more conservative than the one it replaces.

Hmm, is he right?

Consider first that Democrats are the coalition of the nuanced, which the media takes as license for two flip-flopping memes: Read more about Will Watch: Meet the new conservatives, different from the old conservatives

Bush to country: "Honey, I've changed!"
