Great post today over at Buzzmachine on the overuse/misuse of "change" and the anti-Bush "Vote for Change" tour .

But the best thing about it was what I found in the comments section posted by one "Bounder".
Here it is:
"Change" is an action, not a goal. If you want to change the look of your home you can buy new furniture OR you can just burn it to the ground. Either counts as 'change'.
Liberals today are in the position of religious goup that cannot agree on what Heaven looks like, so they focus on casting out the devil instead.
It's all well and good to hate the devil, but if you can't articulate a shared positive vision then all you have to sell is your hatred of the devil.
That can only take you so far, and sooner or later is going to change you into something you probably didn't want to be.


Well said.
