Good-bye America

Witness the recent revelation that three of the Republican candidates for president do not believe in evolution. Three men seeking to lead the last superpower on Earth reject the scientific consensus on cosmology, thermonuclear dynamics, geology and biology, believing instead that Bamm-Bamm and Dino played together.
- LA Times editorial on the “Creation Museum” that opened Monday near Cincinnati.

The president's trope has been that we're fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here. It's a notion dependent on the absurd idea that a disparate, lateral organization of religious fanatics is somehow unable to do both. The truth appears to be: we are training them over there so they can come and murder us over here.
- Andrew Sullivan

Good-bye America ... you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can’t make you be that country unless you want it.

It’s up to you now.

- From Cindy Sheehan's "farewell letter"
