Back to the Future!

Back in the mid-1990s, plenty of people were making comments like this, only Clinton was the problem. Those people were known as Clinton-haters and were generally ignored in any real discussion of politics and the state of our union.

And no, Gore's comments are not unusual. If you need evidence of how radical and consumed with hate some people have become, click on over here between 3-6 p.m. weekdays and give Ed Shultz a listen. I actually enjoy his show, primarily thanks to the loons he puts on the air.

For example, earlier this week an adult male called in to state his issue with both the Miers nomination and Roberts confirmation. He said both needed to be grilled on their legal opinion of martial law, cause (I'm paraphrasing here) Bush was going to declare martial law prior to 2008 and void elections. He would do so by either allowing or orchestrating another terrorist attack.

This is real nut-job ranting, but I heard somewhat similar sentiments on Rush's show back in 1996 (ie. the country is getting worse and won't survive until 2000, when Clinton will do anything to stay in power).

Of course, those were just irrational Clinton-haters. Bush-haters - for some odd reason - are supposed to be taken seriously.
