One-Two Punch

[Cross-posted to AmbivaBlog]

Listening to "Meet the Press" this morning -- Southern Republicans turning against tax cuts, everyone acknowledging our almost Biblical obligation to the poor -- it strikes me that the last four years for America have been bracketed by a one-two punch. Bin Laden's blow spun us to the right, now Katrina's roundhouse is snapping our heads to the left. In both cases, it was a correction we needed, though a terrible way to get it.

Are we going straight ahead yet?

i disagree that right was the correct direction to go, but i've been saying the last few days, when people are happy that bush is finally getting the bad press he deserves, that it came at a terrible price.
