Sara Vowell is a Great Writer...

Some witty thought from an inspired writer:

On Bush's 2004 re-election:

Thus the election unleashed four more years in which even a goody-goody nice girl, who was raised to believe that "shut up" is a curse, cusses at her morning newspaper with the foul mouth of a gangsta rapper who has stubbed his toe.

On warantless wiretapping:

But let us conclude by looking on the bright side. Some Americans used to waste their free time writing to the White House or phoning their Congressmen to inform government officials of their opinions. Now a concerned citizen may get her point across to Washington about the Iran situation by simply complaining via cellphone to her friend Brent, who called to brag that he met Ambassador Joe Wilson at a party at Sundance.
