Bush supporters remind me of Nixon's last defenders. Their loyalty renders them incapable of facing the truth. They rail against the hard left, which is a red herring, while Bush repeatedly swings a wrecking ball at Iraq, the American military, justice, the rule of law and American prestige around the world. One doesn't have to be a leftist to question the patriotism of Bush and his self-serving cronies.
Bush's defenders can blame the left for views held by people like me, but they would be wrong about that just as they've been wrong about almost everything else.
Here's Maher on Bush. I'm with him except for Hillary Clinton, but if anything could drive me to Hillary it would be Bushco.

Bush supporters would like to believe that the majority of Americans who don't support Bush are "crazy." But most of Bush's dwindling support lies with defiantly concrete, authoritarian types like this poster, Christian end-timers committed to an Apocalyptic vision for the Middle East and those who can't separate their narrow version of Israeli interests from American interests. For this last group, all but the Israeli hard right are too liberal.
Given their peculiar alliance with the end-timers, one could wonder if some among the last group have unconsciously identified with the aggressor. I wouldn't go so far as to speculate on death wishes since identification with the aggressor is motivated by the wish to survive, but I am alarmed by their cavalier attitude about an alliance with the membership of a politically powerful religious sect that expects them to ultimately surrender their identity or die.
