I’ve figured out what it means when Colin Powell says all this sane stuff, which he was caught doing again this week much to the chagrin of the Christian-fascist movement. It’s not just that Colin Powell is the only member of this administration that not an evil waste of carbon and oxygen. It’s that Colin Powell knows damned well he’s got more Presidential mettle in his eyebrow trimmings than Bush has in his whole body, and that if he, Colin Powell, had listened when folks were begging him to run, we wouldn’t be toppling off our current precipice. Colin Powell, my friends, is EXPIATING. Right before your eyes. Step right up.
