There is no opposition party. And the party that is in power is falling apart. Doesn’t that kind of mean the country’s falling apart? I don’t wanna be accused of being an alarmist, but if there’s nothing to replace the government with in terms of an opposition party, and you see it all falling down around you, well doesn’t that mean that we’re all kind of screwed? It kind of feels that way to me. And I’m pretty worried about it, to be honest with you.

Republicans lost it some time ago. What’s scary is when they lose their sense of good planning. Like dude, you know, if you’re gonna lie, really… It’s a big thing to fake your way into a war. Like, think it through. Do a better job at the lie, if that’s what it’s gonna be. Do a better job – I mean, whatever your goals were in invading Iraq, it couldn’t have been this. This can’t be all part of some master plan. Something went wrong.

I think everyone’s kind of just whistling and pretending everything’s OK. At the heart of this is the cover-up, and the misleading the country to war in Iraq. And quite honestly, I don’t think Republicans actually did a particularly good or sophisticated job, but I think everybody wanted to be fooled. I remember being on the Bill Maher show talking about how ridiculous this was before the invasion. And, you know, a lot of people, even Democrats, had been so easily thrown into this fear frenzy that they lost common sense.

If your intentions are already bad, and then you still make giant mistakes, it seems like things just get worse. I get little joy seeing this, because what I don’t see is the public saying, “Wow, those guys are really bad, maybe we should re-evaluate everything.” I don’t see that response with the scandals, I don’t see it with the indictments, I don’t see it after Katrina, I don’t see the public going, “Wow, let’s really re-examine the entire direction this country is going.”

I just feel like the country is guilty. I think we should be deeply ashamed for what we’ve done in Iraq, and we’ve gotta reconcile that, and we’ve gotta find some way to make peace with this, and we can’t do that until we acknowledge what took place, and ultimately, I think that’s the poison that is killing this administration. And I think there’s a lot of people in the country who are guilty of allowing themselves to be duped in a very sloppy, sloppy manner.
