Read the whole thing at the San Francisco Chronicle:
... Just look at what bilious right-wing hatemongers wished for during the Clinton years: a complete reversal of power, ultimate GOP control of everything. Well, they got it. And our nation has never been more corrupt, more divided, more globally loathed, closer to the edge of collapse.
gotta be careful what you wish for, even if you wish for Karl Rove's
head on the hood of Satan's Cadillac. ...
... Now Mark Foley comes along and is making almost all liberal dreams come true and seriously, I'm sorry for it. See, I believe in karma. I believe what comes around goes around and I know full well that it's just bad juju to wish such a level of turmoil and ill upon other humans, warmongering gay-hating maladroits or no, and that the real path of enlightenment is paved with forgiveness and progress and white-hot love and turning the other cheek and scotch.
In fact, Jesus said something about that, I do believe. He said, "Knock it off already with the warmongering and the hating of each other and let's all get some wine and party like it's 2012." Then again, he never saw Karl Rove stab the nation with the dull ice pick of bogus fear. He never heard George W. Bush describe brutal war and the death of tens of thousands as "just a comma" in world history.
Check that. Maybe I'm not so sorry after all.
