I know that someone is going to rip me a new one for posting this on 9/11 (TM), but I'm gonna do it anyway.
Let's be clear: I believe 9/11 (TM) was a horrible day in our country's history. A lot of talented, innocent people died at the hands of some madmen. Our country has never been the same and it probably never will be.
And, I completely agree with Keith Olbermann. The GOP has turned 9/11 (TM) into its own personal campaign issue with their fear-mongering. And it's disgusting. They should be ashamed, but they're not. In fact, they think it's okay. They think it's okay to question the patriotism of anyone who dares to question them. They think it's okay to hijack personal freedoms in the name of national security, but fail to show any proof that this works other than to say "we haven't been attacked again" hoping that will shut questioners up. They think it's okay to lie to the American people in order to start a war that has nothing to do with 9/11 (TM). They think it's okay to make fun of people who serve their country in any way other than by joining the military and going to war.

This election is about fear vs. hope. I hope everyone makes their choice after a great deal of sober consideration.
