Hate Is the New Love

noun: a person who believes very strongly in particular principles and tries to follow them carefully (from The Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary)

In his closing statement last night, President Bush went way out on a limb, only a week after his brave denouncement of slavery and pro-slavery Supreme Court justices, when he railed against "the ideologues of hate." I'd bet the meetings for that particular ideology must be spectacularly unpleasant.

I can only assume they would be opposed by those "armies of compassion" we keep hearing about.

And somewhere in heaven E.B. White and George Orwell are banging their heads together and weeping.
