More Than Enough Said

Delight these days always seems to be paired with less pleasant words starting with "de":
Mr. Bush used all the trappings of the presidency to generate enthusiasm and dominate Florida's airwaves. In the morning, in the first of four scheduled appearances in the state, Mr. Bush swept over a crowd of 12,000. As his helicopter, Marine One, landed in a jammed stadium, the music from "Top Gun,'' the movie about a risk-taking Navy pilot, blared over the loudspeakers. And it wasn't just any stadium: It was the field where the Boston Red Sox - hometown team of his rival - play their spring training games.
I'm trying not to fall back on pure invective here, but when I read stories like the one this passage comes from, I want to go peel off some bumper stickers.
