"CW: Do you think the White House and the republicans want to make the American people afraid?
WJC: Of course they do. They want another homeland security bill and they want to make it not about Iraq but some other security issue. Where if we disagree with them we are by definition endangering the security of the country. "
Maybe this is what we need as Democrats--someone to speak angrily to stupidity. There is no doubt that the Republicans prefer a fearful America who is then willing not only to vote against Democrats as possibly unAmerican, but also willing to allow this President to further strip Americans of rights. Oh, and also torture the hell out of any one who gets caught in their net.
