Where The Left Takes A Turn For The Worse

The hysteria is slowly building to a pitch as we approach the convention: Fahrenheit 9/11, the protests planned for NYC, a pro-Kerry concert tour, anti-Bush urinal stickers, and a slew of books, including an assassination-themed novel. (Thanks to Allah and Slant Point). Here is only a partial list of what the search term "Bush" produces on Amazon:

I stopped at number 200 in Amazon's search results;I would say that fewer than 20 of them were pro-Bush or neutral, and another 20 or so were unrelated (gardening, Africa, etc.) I omitted collections of Bush gaffes. Yahoo News reports on the slew of anti-Bush books slated for release before the election.

This hysteria is becoming alarming; not because of how it could effect the election, but because of what it says about our country and a lot of people in it. And if Bush wins reelection, what will the Left do then? I shudder to think.
