I Can Feeeeeel Your Anger

WaPo columnist Richard Cohen dared express an opinion that Stephen Colbert was not funny at the White House correspondent's dinner and the Lefty fever swamp overflowed with bile - filling his email inbox with raw sewage.

Cohen, a Liberal, recognizes this seething anger from the Left. It seems all too familiar to him:

"This spells trouble -- not for Bush or, in 2008, the next GOP presidential candidate, but for Democrats. The anger festering on the Democratic left will be taken out on the Democratic middle. (Watch out, Hillary!) I have seen this anger before -- back in the Vietnam War era. That's when the antiwar wing of the Democratic Party helped elect Richard Nixon. In this way, they managed to prolong the very war they so hated.

The hatred is back. I know it's only words now appearing on my computer screen, but the words are so angry, so roiled with rage, that they are the functional equivalent of rocks once so furiously hurled during antiwar demonstrations. I can appreciate some of it. Institution after institution failed America -- the presidency, Congress and the press. They all endorsed a war to rid Iraq of what it did not have. Now, though, that gullibility is being matched by war critics who are so hyped on their own sanctimony that they will obliterate distinctions, punishing their friends for apostasy and, by so doing, aiding their enemies. If that's going to be the case, then Iraq is a war its critics will lose twice -- once because they couldn't stop it and once more at the polls."

Yes. Use your aggressive feelings. Let the hate flow through you. It is unavoidable. It is your destiny. You will pay the price for your lack of vision.
