If you are a Republican, you'd better be against a woman's right to choose and spending on social programs, or else. If you're a Democrat, of course, you're 100 percent for abortion rights and but- ter, not guns (at least rhetorically). Go against the grain on this issue, in either subculture, and you're disqualified instantly. Try to take off the intellectual straightjacket, and you're toast. In my own analysis—and I realize this is simplistic—at heart, “con- servatives” seem to be sex-negative, while “liberals” (like Bill Clinton, although a look at his record will reveal him to be to the right of Ronald Regan) seem to be a little more on the randy side—like who in their right mind would find Ann Coulter sexy, if you know what I mean?
The Washington Post did run the story on the fake felon list that selected our President—even with a com- ment under my byline. I wrote the story within weeks of the election, while Al Gore was still in the race. The Post courageously ran it…seven months after the election. The New York Times ran it…well, never, even after Katherine Harris confessed the scam to a Florida court after she and the state were successfully sued by the NAACP. I HAVE THE LIST FROM OUT OF THE COMPUTERS OF KATHERINE HARRIS' OFFICE—AND THE “SCRUBBED” VOTER'S RACE IS LISTED WITH EACH NAME.
This is the “big lie” the Republicans would have you believe, but look at who owns the newspapers and television networks in this country! Repeat something loud enough and long enough, and it becomes true. But it's 180 degrees out of whack with reality, as you know and I know and they know it, too. The more you begin to detach from it, the more cosmically absurd American politics becomes. These people are the grown-up ver- sions of the same people you hated in high school and college, and now they are running things.
