Depressed Beyond Words
Smartmom is too tired and disheartened to write anything right now. She got this e-mail from Best & Oldest which seems to express what she and a lot of Slopesters are feeling today.

I’m depressed beyond words and trying to figure out if going back to Berlin would make me feel any better. I no longer feel like a citizen of this country – or let’s say – I am ashamed to be an American – astonished at the lack of intelligence – but even more by the lack of conscience – we have killed more Iraquis than Saddam Hussein – our vice-president used government money to pay his company to rebuild a country we destroyed – there has never been an administration this evil in the history of America – what could he have done worse in the last four years? And this guy can’t be beat?
I wonder how many rich people voted for Bush (even in secret) to keep their few thousand dollars in tax cuts – it seems to me that everyone votes only for their own selfish concerns – and I wonder if there are more than one third of Americans who are right wing Christians (as if that wasn’t enough) - are we really a gun-loving, gay hating, black hating, Jew-hating (let’s face it) country?
I guess we could also move to Canada if Berlin seems too far away.
Well, I said “beyond words,” so I should stop with all these useless words.
