Righties are snickering because of the light turnout at this weekend's anti-war demonstrations. But seriously: do you know anyone who actually thinks a bunch of big demonstrations might have led to changes in this administration's policies?

When you're dealing with someone who's addicted to harmful behavior, at a certain point you may realize that you've said everything you possibly can to try to persuade the person to change course, and nothing you say or do will help. If the person refuses to see the need for change, you may have to just give up and recognize that you've done everything you can to stop the death spiral, and nothing you said or did got through. Some people just can't or won't change. Bush is one of them.
