Presidential Character. This New York Times editorial really says it all. Liberal though I am, I can understand the allure and rationale of conservative political positions. But what I fail to understand is how anyone can, at this point, support Bush.

Update: Oh, and here’s a helpful visual aid for the $87 billion war money request. As everyone with any sense is saying, we have to put up this cash because we already have both feet in the middle of it in Iraq, but it’s important to remember that there are plenty of people who aren’t surprised by the big numbers Bush is now putting up. The only people who didn’t expect expenditures like this are the ones who didn’t want to believe in them.
