Profile In Cowardice
It is time for someone to take on Bush and the whole corrupt system that he represents. Ted Kennedy could do it, but he has the luggage of Chappaquidick to deal with. Maybe Ted should just tell us what really happened that night . . . that the death of Mary Jo Kopechne was the result of a covert black op designed to knock him out of the race for the presidency. I guess the threats he got afterwards are still enough to subdue him.
Is there anyone who is not compromised who would like to make history, and maybe get the Wellstone reception treatment in the process? Probably not. Once again, it will have to be WE THE PEOPLE who put our lives on the line to make sure democracy doesn't get totally flushed down Bush's toilet. The demonstrations ala pre-war Iraq have all but disappeared, even though American troops are being murdered every day in Iraq and Afghanistan. I guess people are drugged by this corrupted capitalist entity we call the United States to not really care enough.
