"No matter how paranoid or conspiracy-minded you are, what the government is actually doing is worse than you imagine." - - - William Blum

I came across this survey quote at the UC Berkeley site:

'All the things you just mentioned are smoke screens by the liberal media and the left wing of the Democratic Party. There are some reasonable Democrats, but the party seems to have been hijacked by MoveOn.org, Michael Moore, and Cindy Sheehan. The FEMA response to Katrina was no different than its response to any other catastrophe: you heard the same complaints after Hurricane Andrew. Valerie Plame [the reason behind Libby's indictment] wasn't a covert operator; if she was, her husband Joe Wilson shouldn't have been writing op-eds for the New York Times. The Harriet Miers nomination — whoever Bush nominates is going to get a fight, it's a no-win situation. The 2,000-deaths marker in Iraq? Not to marginalize people dying, but this number pales in comparison to a single Civil War battle. Two thousand is a number: you can make a milestone out of any number you want. If you're committed to an action, you have to be prepared to take casualties.' - - - Richard Ogar, Library Technical Services

This guy works at the Berkeley library, so if this is any indication, Democrats really still have their work cut out before the next election cycle.
