Pretty pitiful

When the only apparent hope for real opposition to the Bushie neonut agenda comes from Republicans. While Dumbocrats like John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden (who is probably just copying the speeches of the other two) are bending over backwards calling for more troops in Iraq and in general trying to out-Bush Bush, the semi-sane wing of the Repug party is speaking out. Rep. Walter "Freedom Fries" Jones (R-NC) says the Iraq war had no justification. Senators McCain (R-AZ), Graham (R-SC) and Warner (R-VA) call for torture to stop in the American gulag. Senator Hagel (R-NB) calls for withdrawal of troops from Iraq. And Senator Specter (R-PA) calls for Rummy to stop bad-mouthing Venezuela.

Of course, McCain and Hagel have spouted off about Bush before, but when Bush came to shove they were with him rather than agin' him. Nevertheless, it seems that right now our only hope against endless war and fascism rests with these Repugs--assuming they can overcome the opposition of the DLC warmongers mentioned above.

Like I said, pitiful.
