Comfortably ensconced in the Philadelphia suburbs, gainfully employed, Billmon wants to heighten the contradictions:
I'm rooting (through gritted teeth) for the Rovians to win this match [the midterm elections] -- or, more accurately, not lose it -- because I think both the Cheney Administration's fake reality and the genuine article have even more unpleasant surprises in store for this country, and I don't think either the Democratic Party or the American people can handle them at this point.
Is that right? I can't say for sure that we can, thank you, but I'm damned glad we get to decide for ourselves.
Update: 11:45 pm 20 Sept - Never let it be said that the man doesn't make the occasional irritation worth it.
Update 2: 10:30 am 24 April 2007 - Links to billmon.org are dead; have changed them to whiskeybar.org, which (for now) makes the Billmon archives available except for images.
