Seems I haven't been the only one. If Roy felt like this on Tuesday, I don't feel like such a wuss. I think I'm coming out of it, but I also think the Shock and Awe are going to be coming home - perhaps for the first time - to many people who have invested their trust and fears in this misbegotten government, and for them it is going to be a difficult awakening. Long, agonizing, no anaesthetic. It will give me no pleasure, but the bullshit must be washed away - rivers may need to be diverted, and we are seeing only a trickle so far, but the America I love can't regain her bearings without it.
