Better Angels

"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

You know, usually our local Fox affiliate isn't too bad. But tonight I was so irritated with their political coverage. Their "analyst" Joe Battenfeld mentioned that a "lot of people would be watching" Kerry's appearances on Letterman and Regis and Kelly "to see if he shows his human side." This he says without any irony after showing a clip of Bush shambling around a stage in New Hampshire, smirking and speaking non-sensically. ("I couldn't disagree more, and not so long ago, so did my opponent.") I'd like to see Bush's human side sometime - you know, the side of him that gives a rat's ass about the millions of Americans suffering as he cavorts around his neo-con fantasy zone.
