Got this email and link from a friend and I thought the bloggisphere would be interested in the view point:
"Bush's visit to the Pope's funeral is out to find solidarity with bigots of all stripes. The tragedy is that it's too easy to assemble a majority of know-nothings, they know so little of the contradictions that exist among themselves. This is what the founders were against, the tyranny of the majority. That's why we have a republic and not a democracy."
