Well, we went to the Democratic Party office and picked up our John Kerry for President sign and bumper-stickers, as well as a "You think education is expensive? Try ignorance" bumper-sticker. Kim put up the sign in the front yard and affixed both bumper-stickers to Old Red, where everyone in the neighborhood can see them. Given the fact that the Fundamentalist across the street hasn't responded to my forceful -- but polite -- message in response to the Judge Roy Moore poem he forwarded and that his wife now glares at us even more than before, I worry that no one will prevent the defacement of our property. But there comes a point when you have to stop living in fear, right?
Apparently, San Francisco's Nancy Pelosi has reached that point. The important point here is that she refused to retract or even soften her condemnation of Bush. I especially like the part at the end of the article when she wards off her critics in advance:
"His activities, his decisions, the results of his actions are what undermines his leadership, not my statement," Pelosi said. "My statements are just a statement of fact."
I realize that Pelosi has often been harshed on in Bay Area circles for "selling out" to the Democratic machine. But, goddamn, she sure seems to be keeping it real to someone living amid Promise Keepers.
