James: I'm not a diplomat. The election is over, there is no point in trying to convince Bush supporters of anything. I know what my opponents think, and they are wrong, but I don't expect explanations to matter. People determine their axiomatic beliefs, then they look for supporting evidence. The right has framed the discussion so that axiomatic beliefs are aligned with their own, focusing on the small overlaps they can find.
Perry: the total number of abortions have gone up under Bush. Yep, he's doing a great job.
