Santayana Smiles

The truth is cruel, but it
can be loved, and it makes free those who have loved it.”



Count America's historians out of the pro-Bush crowd.


I'm not going to pretend that this is a terribly remarkable or
surprising development. Historians are, after all, academics; and a
pro-Bush academic makes about as much sense in this day and age as a
termite at Stonehenge.


Still, these here historians went through all this trouble to come
up with a neat graph, and it details with such amazing precision the
whys and wherefores of their loathing for ol' Chimpy
McWhistleass,
that it's well worth wasting a post just
to reproduce it here
:



I think even Dubya would get this one.


Since proto-neocon Leo
Strauss
was an historian, I think it's safe to say that those 19%
suffering under the delusion of Bush's grandeur are undoubtedly those
damned fool neocon friends of his. And knowing how
the neocons operate
, it would be equally safe to guess that they
each of them voted as early and often as they could just to jack
Dubya's numbers up that high.


Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”



I wonder if the votes were electronically
tallied
?
