"Incompetence, on reflection, might have actually been better for the country."
"Incompetence obscures the real issue. Bush's conservative philosophy is what has damaged this country and it is his philosophy of conservatism that must be rejected, whoever endorses it."
Reminds me of a Jon Stewart quote:
"I think [Republicans] believe president bush would do a better job, and I believe Kerry guys believe Kerry would do a better job, but what I believe is they're not making honest arguments. So what they're doing is, in their minds, the ends justify the means."
