I really must hand it to Rachel Maddow — she is able to express my frustration and ire toward the Bush administration (and the many messed-up systems of our civilization) with eloquence and patience. She's a tremendous asset to our democratic project, and other journalists could learn from her.
Please watch the interview she did with former Secretary of the Office of Homeland Security Tom Ridge. In the first section they discuss the role of politics in raising the terror alert level.
Be sure to watch part two on Katrina:
And part three on Iraq:
I strongly believe that calm, rational discourse like this is the only thing that can save our species right now. If we can't discuss things like sane humans, then maybe we deserve the various annihilations that threaten us.
Thanks (as always) to madsimian.
