There were these hippies standing outside the Whitney and one of them came up to me with a petition. "Would you like to help fight the Bush administration?" he asked. I shrugged him off, not because I don't believe the righties deserve to freeze in the ninth circle of Dante's Inferno, but because I didn't want to listen to a rant from some idealistic hemp-muncher.

Fight the power!

But seriously, dude — Dubya has control over the executive branch, both houses of Congress, the Supreme Court and judiciary, the military war hawks, Saudi oil-humpers, and the evil corporate infrastructure. You have a clipboard and a windbreaker with the Sierra Club logo on it. Do the math.
