If Kerry was the anti-Bush, Bush was the anti-anti-Bush, the anti-antiWar candidate. The candidate of action as opposed to the candidate of self-recrimination.
Indeed, the peaceniks and blame-yourselfers left me no choice but to vote for Bush. I was not an anti-Kerry voter -- I voted for Bush. He is the best man for the job. But certainly, the "Bush = Hitler" crowd were people I wanted to be far, far away from, both physically and ideologically.
It is a long and eloquent post. Well worth the read, as usual.
