Forgive me. I know this is cheap and lazy.
Here’s a referral for your reading pleasure: Go and read Jane Smiley’s article Notes For Converts on The Huffington Post. Make sure you have a half hour or so to spare before you start, because you are going to want to read the whole thing.
In it Ms. Smiley attempts to explain to confused former Bush supporters exactly how they have been betrayed by their hero, and how they have unwittingly taken part in their own betrayal. Jane’s eloquent outrage almost made me stand up and shout.
Whether your sentiments lie with the Left or the Right, you should read this article. That’s all.
