John Danforth's guest column in today's New York Times expresses what so many of us are asking for--a return of focus on the real issues that face our country. It is sad how every day shows how mainstream the once-extreme right has become in the Republican party and our federal government in general. Do these people live in a vacuum? I ask that because it sure seems like the Republicans at the state level (including here in Arkansas) realize that religion-based legislation tends to divide people while ignoring the real issues at hand. But the guys running the show in our federal government do not reflect the will of the majority.
Oh well, that just means the Democrats will make some serious gains in 2006 and 2008, which suits me just fine.
Fight the good fight.
