The right wing has had a radio apparatus for years and years,
so they've had minor leagues - they've had local rightwing
guys who've become national rightwing guys,

We haven't had that.
It isn't like we have a farm team.

I also focus on Bush and his administration -
who do a lot of lying -
and how a right-wing media has allowed them to get
away with a lot of stuff that,

It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,

always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
