What Kind of Crap Is This?

Dictators have often used fear as a way to maintain their strangleholds on their people.

Yesterday I heard that Dick Cheney said the following about John Kerry.

“If we make the wrong choice then the danger is that we’ll get hit again and we’ll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States.”

Give me a break. We face that danger every day and Bush/Cheney didn’t stop it in the past and the notion that they will stop it in the future and John Kerry can’t and won’t is just crap.

I wish the American public would see through this campaign of fear, but I have my doubts these days and it makes me really sad and really angry.

UPDATE: I am not the only person who is angry about this. Read Jason Chervokas’ longer and better articulated perspective on the VP’s comments.
