John Dean (yes, that one) uses the F-word (no, not that one):"Are we on the road to fascism? Clearly, we are not on that road yet. But it would not take much more misguided authoritarian leadership, or thoughtless following of such leaders, to find ourselves there. I am not sure which is more frightening: another major terror attack or the response of authoritarian conservatives to that attack.""Cheney has swallowed the presidency.""My views have changed very little over the last 40 years. The Republican Party and conservatism have moved so far to the right that I'm now left of center."
