The terrorists turned the Spanish election by the deft placement of a few bombs days before an election. They turned ours by killing 100 soldiers in Iraq in one month. (I know, it’s more complicated than that, but that’s how our enemies will interpret it.) That American voters would send such a message is deeply dismaying.
In her mind, American voters are just dumb and were easily manipulated by terrorists. To vote Democratic in a time of war is deeply, deeply unpatriotic and dismaying.
I can't believe that as the years roll by, there are still these kind of unreconstructed wingnuts out there.
