NYT: Frank Rich on reclaiming America

Link.

The actual real America is everywhere. It is the America that has been in shell shock since the aftermath of 9/11, when our government wielded a brutal attack by terrorists as a club to ratchet up our fears, betray our deepest constitutional values and turn Americans against one another in the name of “patriotism.” What we started to remember the morning after Election Day was what we had forgotten over the past eight years, as our abusive relationship with the Bush administration and its press enablers dragged on: That’s not who we are.
Forgive me, but I must point out that I wrote a whole entry on how McCain/Palin attempted to redouble Bush/Cheney/Rove's successful browbeating of our desiccated national media.

The sad part: that same media awaits marching orders from the new president, like Captain Willard stepping out after murdering Col. Kurtz, only to find a village of Cambodians on their knees, hoping for a new dictator.



No profanes - sacred
