Important Words from both sides of the fence

A reprint of an interview of someone who is is decidedly on the Left...



Semi-regular USA Today columnist Julianne Malveaux said Monday that President Bush is “a terrorist” and that America is “a terrorist nation.”

In an interview that began with Malveaux accusing U.S. troops of “beating” terrorist suspects at Guantanamo Bay, the controversial author and economist told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity: “Terrorism in the United States is as old as we are. You want me to give you a litany of terrorism? You want me to start with what’s happened to the Indian population? You want to go on to what happened in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1921?”

“C’mon now, Sean,” Malveaux told Hannity. “We are terrorists.”

Asked point-blank if the U.S. was a “terrorist nation,” Malveaux shot back: “Oh, Absolutely.”

“You know [the WMDs] weren’t there. I know they weren’t there,” she told Hannity. “George W. Bush is evil. He is a terrorist. He is evil. He is arrogant. And he is out of control.”

...and words from someone who is often an annoyance to the Right, but who makes perfect sense today:
Sen. McCain [R-AZ] Strong Words On Supreme Ct Nomination at Dallas Fundraiser: 'During the campaign, President Bush said he will appoint judges who will strictly interpret the constitution... thinking anything else is either amnesia or ignorance... elections have consequences... whomever he nominates deserves an up or down vote and no filibuster... and an up or down vote is what we will have'... DrudgeReport
Emphasis by me; YES, elections do have consequences. That is a single most important point that seems lost on so many.
