War and rumors of war

W.Bush may or may not genuinely want to invade Iraq (or rather let the boys do it for him) but it already looks like a closed deal that the current talk about war has secured several republican seats in this winter's elections. Back when the newspapers were all about the economy and the finance scandals, these seats seemed poised to go Democrat.

Perhaps to the American people, it looks like patriotism to vote for the President's party in a time of war. From across a really big ocean, it looks like sheep going the way their owner wants, because they believe the sheepdog is a wolf.

(Not that there's anything wrong with voting Republican ...)
