Election 2004: A Hogwarts Howler For The American Voter

Oh, how I wish this column was capable of special effects. If it was, the newspaper or computer screen you’re reading this on would suddenly morph into a Howler, one of those bright red envelopes in the Harry Potter books that, when opened, begin to shout at the recipient in the sender’s voice. In this case, my Greek-accented cry would fill the air:
WAKE UP! WAKE UP!! WAKE UP!!!
The reason for my distress is simple: I’ve just seen another round of polls showing that, by a hefty 23-point spread, voters think George W. Bush will make the country safer and more secure than John Kerry. Karl Rove’s VBD (Vote for Bush or Die) strategy is clearly working.
