"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Republican Buzzword: Fascist

CNN has an article discussing the new buzzword of the Republicans and the Administration; "fascism."

The news organization also has a QuickVote on the subject:

Do you agree with describing the war on terror as a war on "fascism"?

Yes 32% 10,357 votes
No 68% 22,360 votes
Total 32,717 votes

Gee, where do you suppose the majority of CNN readers/viewers reside within the political spectrum?

Odd that Republicans would be given the credit for the popularity of the term; according the the Left, Bush is a fascist leader and that has been in use almost since 2001. Neat trick.
