Now a Republican congressman has come out against the invasion of my country. In a letter to his contitients.... constitutionis.... his subjects, Doug Bereuter of Nebraska says the war is a "costly mess." He goes on to say that the United States' reputation around the world has suffered greatly.

This is a truly bold move by Congressman Bereuter, and I admire his cajones. Of course, if a member of my government ever broke ranks with me like that, well, it wouldn't have been pretty. There would have been electrodes, torture, fingernails being pulled, lots of screaming, splattering blood, etc. Of course, since Mr. Bush is running a democracy with freedom of speech, he can't do any of that.

So you see, being a despot has its advantages!
