Ethics Matter

Friday, September 12th, 2008

“In a democracy, we get the government we deserve.” Something to keep in mind.

Way back, shortly after Senator McCain won the Republican primary, I remarked to my son that at least (at last!) we would have two decent candidates running for the office of president. I was so very, very wrong.

From Andrew Sullivan

“We cannot control these despicable liars in the McCain campaign. We can only tell the truth as fearlessly and as relentlessly and as continuously as we can until November 4. We must do our duty. And if the American people want to re-elect the machine that has helped destroy this country’s national security, global reputation and economic health, then that is their choice. But I am not so depressed to think that they will.

We must give them the truth. And that will feel like hell. And we must tell it like Truman told it: cheerfully, passionately and relentlessly.”
