Dawn of the Brain-Dead
The re-election of mentally- and morally-challenged George W. Bush means the dumbing down of America is complete.
Bush returned to office because an army of brain-dead cretins, their minds turned to mush by years of right-wing propaganda, marched to the polls and exercised what little grey matter remained to pull the lever, touch the screen or mark the ballot to elect anything Republican.
True, no small measure of blame goes to the Democrats for fielding their own Keystone Cops slate of candidates, but Republicans stay in power because they have turned their followers into a mob of zombies, staring blankly into space while their party destroys a once-great country called America.
Republicans undermine America the way the Nazis pillaged and plundered Germany - using fear as a motivator, playing on public paranoia over an enemy that could be weakened if the President were not focused more on his personal agenda than the security of the people he is sworn to protect.
Bush is a madman, a pill-popping dry drunk whose recklessness grows and can now run amuck for four more years, thanks to mindless morons who buy into his party's line of partisan paranoia.
Bush would not be able to accomplish his mission of American destruction were it not for the mindless masses who buy into the right-wing hysteria fueled by the Republican party. Mesmerized by conservative hypesters like Rush Limbaugh (another dope head) and Sean Hannity, the intellectually-challenged buy into the party line that only the right-wing can be right, only the fear-mongering lies of conservatives can be trusted and only those who buy this crap can be "real Americans."
These zealots are a greater threat to our freedoms than any olive-skinned terrorist. They support the constant attacks on the Constitution by their leaders and excuse the excesses of their administration while condemning similar actions by their opponents.
Thanks to them, America is no longer the land of the free or home of the brave. Thanks to them, we have become the land of the moronic and home of the oppressed. They are a greater enemy to freedom than any Farsi-spouting Muslim cleric ever can be.

Doug Thompson, Republican
The creator of Capitol Hill Blue is a lifelong Republican, working as press sec'y to Paul Findley, Manuel Lujan and Dan Burton - as well as being very active with the Reagan campaign and the National Republican Senatorial and Congressional Committees. So to dismiss him as a left wing kook would be a mild misrepresentation to say the least. Here's what he's saying today.
