Dean Esmay asks conservatives to take a patriotic oath - to promise before the election to rally behind the president, even if it's that worthless sack of shit, John Kerry. I think I can get behind that. I'm a lot like the voters of West Virginia in that regard - in general, I tend to respect figures of authority. Call me an authoritarian if you must, but the country's bigger than the president, and after another four years of whoever the hell the voters elect, I'll either be American, or dead. Regardless of which scion of New England patriarchal privilege happens to have been keeping the chair in the Oval Office warm.
