The right wing has quite a gig. Bush divides the nation after 9/11, bull-rushes into and botches a war in Mesopotamia, spends my grandchildren's taxes like a Bizarro-world LBJ, and tramples on civil liberties. Then, when the left (and center) get furious, they label them as "angry." Or "Bush-bashers." Rove then says something about Democrats wallowing in "swamp gas."

The best word for torture is "torture." The best word for a liar is "liar." When Bush's actions are infuriating, it is OK to be furious.

Please keep calling it as you see it.
