"Will we continue on as the United States of George Bush, arrogant, reckless and scared of our own shadow? This is increasingly the tenor of the desperate, fact-challenged McCain-Palin campaign, which is going all out to stoke its base into a frenzy of us vs. the terrorists, us vs. the Muslims, us vs. the elitists, us vs. the '60s radicals . . . us vs. 'them' (shhhh, you know who I mean, Michelle's his baby mama). What it comes down to is us vs. anybody. This is the language of war. It's the only language spoken by McCain, the hijacked Republican Party and the media blather-machine that serves them." - Robert Koehler, 'Our National Juncture', 16 Oct 2008.
