Some Republican Disasters
They are nice to count when you have trouble falling asleep. Like sheep jumping over the fence in your mind, you can go: "Abramoff, Plame, Ohio rare coins, Katrina, illegal spying, The Governator, No Child Left Behind, Diebold, Iraq, Iraq, Iraq, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo,..." I'm sure I forgot a few. None of these are of course as exciting as getting a blow job in the Oval Office, though all of them are much more serious.
Then of course you are wide awake, with your heart beating like that of a frightened wingnut fearing terrorists under the bed, and you have to get up. Except that most Americans don't have this handly list for the insomniac moments, because so many media channels and writers are more interested in Dean's scream and how the Democrats have no clear agenda. The "no clear agenda" point is like saying that it is you who are wrong when your temper-tantrum-throwing toddler threatens to burn the house down and you as the responsible parent point out that this might not be such a good idea. Only in America...
