I've been depressed lately, having witnessed the conservative democrats win Congress and the hopelessly right-wing sway of state ballot initiatives. They confirmed my suspicion that America was still on a downhill crash course towards oblivion, getting further away from our Constitutional fathers' intentions. But a glimmer of hope shined for me Wednesday with the announcement of a German court indicting former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on war crimes. Not that I expect to actually see the hubristic government-contractor servant go to trial or even convicted. It was just nice that another Bush crony was thrown to the wolves of justice with nary a thought by his former employer.
