Take a look ... it's a pretty good read.

Columbia's Todd Gitlin: "I would not be surprised to see outbursts of political violence the likes of which we haven't seen since the Weather Underground of the 1970s."

In a second term, writes Vanity Fair columnist Michael Wolff, "the take-it-on-the-chin liberal media, the imitate-the-conservative-media liberal media finds a subject -- bad Bush -- that can make it money as well as make it feel good about itself."


Yeah, the media is SUCH a paragon of fairness, looking out for its readers and viewers, digging for the truth and exposing that truth to the light of day for all to make up their own minds.

Here are what some liberals had to say in Glastris's magazine about a second Bush term:

CNN's Paul Begala: "He and his allies are likely to embark on a campaign of political retribution the likes of which we haven't seen since Richard Nixon."

Columbia's Todd Gitlin: "I would not be surprised to see outbursts of political violence the likes of which we haven't seen since the Weather Underground of the 1970s."

Harvard's Elaine Kamarck, a former Clinton aide: "The beginning of the end of American greatness."

Blogger Kevin Drum: "One word: scandal."

Hyperbole, perhaps, but some on the right also see profound consequences. If Bush beats John Kerry and Republicans keep control of the Hill, writes conservative activist Grover Norquist, "the modern Democratic Party cannot survive."

It's hardly unusual for partisans to use tough language in a close campaign. But liberals have a way of talking about the president that fairly drips with disdain. If Bush wins, says Joe Conason, a columnist for Salon and the New York Observer, "I will be worried. I will be concerned for the world."

"Oh man," the New Yorker's Seymour Hersh said recently. "If he's reelected, we're really in trouble."

"The Left Contemplates the Unthinkable"

The left notices that they are collectively crapping their pants.
It's starting to sink in that President Bush is ahead.

Do you mean getting a job and being responsible for themselves? That truly would be unthinkable for most leftists.

It's not as odd once you realize that the liberal left is driven by emotion rather than thought. Many of them truly believe that what a person feels is more important than what they think, or what they do. I call it the social worker outlook.

I've noticed that professions requiring direct, effective action rather than long contemplation (EMS, firefighting, military) tend to be much more conservative than professions which focus on feelings (social work, counseling, etc).

I don't really see it odd at all man. Take some greens and mix in some reds and you get the new brownshirts. THEY'RE the ones who have NO place for dissenting comment (All the yard signs stolen, campaign offices vandalized, physical force used on counter-demonstrators at the conventions ect). It's enough to make a Nazi proud

Not too sure about that last part. My gf is a counseler, and if it's even possible, is more conservative than I am. Got lucky there I guess.

It's an observed generalization, not an absolute. I know a couple of hard boiled counselers too, and a couple of extremely sensitive, emotional firefighters and medics.

The media sound like the whiny babies that we know them to be. Hyperbole? After listening to the liberals doom and gloom predictions for the country and the world should George Bush win? I don't think hyperbole quite captures the sentiment of the left. They actually believe their own predictions. They are so clueless that they truly believe that civilization as we know it will be over if it's Bush who wins and not Kerry. Not that it will just be the end of their cause, but the end of the world if Bush wins. That's beyond naivete. That's beyond simple ideological immaturity. This borders on the incredulous. They truly see themselves as the only hope for mankind, the saviors of the world. These people really are that stupid. I'm sorry, I can't find another word that more aptly describes their fantasy world view. And I don't intend to be kind to them. Their stupidity isn't some form of benign ignorance, it's totally out of touch with reality and extremely dangerous. Should they ever regain the reigns of power it is they who will pose a dire threat to this country and the world. I never thought that Bill Clinton could look like a reasoned, rational leader, albeit one with a bent towards bad policy decisions and personal and administrative corruption, but this bunch is making even him seem reasonable by comparrison.

It's almost as if there's a group of spoiled, evil, malicious, and mendacious children who've taken over the Democrat party with a psychotic media cheering them on.

One can only hope that Bush wins the election and the Republicans retain, and even strengthen their control in Congress. If the world is fortunate, and God sees fit to bless us once again, maybe this disease that has afflicted our political system, will turn it's hatred inward and consume itself.

That whole article is typical stuff, but I have to cry "bullshit!" on the part accusing Bush of all sorts of cover-ups, lying, etc-

EVERYTHING they accuse Bush of almost every president of the past 50 years has done at some point.

I am not with either party, but the truth of the matter is that Bill Clinton was a MASTER deciever ...far better than Bush could EVER be. In fact, he was so good, he still has millions snowballed.


They need to look at themselves before they point the finger. Oh wait..that would require LOGIC and CLEAR THOUGHT..something these socialists cannot do
