I remember driving to a client meeting and listening to Senator Robert Byrd’s impassioned speech against giving W the power to start a war by himself. It was a moment I knew history was going to change, and not for the better. I screamed at the radio, feeling like Charlton Heston at the end of Planet of the Apes:

Congrats on having the guts to protest the war. The media made everyone feel like they were alone in their opposition to the war. The GOP made everyone feel like traitors. What a f*cked up country.
