Bush Supporters Hate Democracy

I wish that post title were just my usual hyperbole. It isn't. Read Digby's Blog to get the full scoop, but here's a nice selection of quotes:
This rage at President Bush is an inevitable result of the system of government demanded by the people, which is Democracy.

The inadequacy of Democracy, rule by the majority, is undeniable – for it demands adopting ideas because they are popular, rather than because they are wise.


By elevating popular fancy over truth, Democracy is clearly an enemy of not just truth, but duty and justice, which makes it the worst form of government.


President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming "ex-president" Bush or he can become "President-for-Life" Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.
THESE PEOPLE ARE IN CHARGE OF OUR COUNTRY!!!! Impeach now. Now, not when Bush cancels the elections to make himself dictator. Now. Before these nutcases can do more damage to our democracy.
