I don’t need any political penance for Republican voters who are now turning away from Bush. A simple “I was duped” will do. No penance is going to bring back lives or reerect buildings bombed into powder, so I suggest we all rethink whether or not we all want former Republican voters to walk out of the city with rocks in their shoes.
What kind of good does that demand do, other than soothe some need for liberal moral comeuppance?
