Bush-WhackingThe paper today reprinted an article by William Greider bemoaning the situation in Iraq. This a couple of weeks after they printed Garrison Keillor's progressive hand-wringing.
Leaving aside my personal politics, which will be revealed later, I realize that the left finally has an inkling of how the right felt about Clinton. I think the mere notion of Clinton as president was just fundamentally revolting to many right-wingers; they could not stand the notion that someone like Clinton was president, and they felt that voters must have been misled in some way, and if they only realized who Clinton really was, they would toss him out on his ear.
Although left-wingers presumably disliked Bush pere and Reagan, I don't think they felt this same gut-level revulsion about him. But now, with Bush fils in office, they can get a sense for how Republicans felt about Clinton. They feel that voters must have been misled in some way, and if they only realize who Bush really is, they will toss him out on his ear.
