Subject: BS: Bush Administration: Aftermaths
With the end of this terrible Administration looming, I thought a catch-all thread for issues relating to cleaning up after the Rpeublilcans might be in order. There will be a lot of broken pieces, mea culpas, tua culpas, and possibly prosecutions among the aftermaths of Bushism.
For a start, here is an interesting analsyis by one time conservative Andrew Sullivan, a man who decided to support the invasion of Iraq, examing why he erred and the cardinal sins he committed -- including misestimating Bush's amoral nature.
What are the damages that need to be put right? How could they be repaired? Two that come to mind are the care of those broken in mind and body by the Iraq war, and the restoration of posse comitatus and the right to privacy. There are many others.
