Most polls show that most of the country is not exactly in love with Bush or his conduct of the current armed conflict -- misnamed "war" -- in Iraq.

At any rate, Civil War, as I've endlessly tried to argue, has more to do analogically with gun control than with the War on Terror and so forth. The illegal detention stuff is a jab at Guantanamo, true, but that reflects that reading the story as a direct political analogy for anything produces a muddle that arguably doesn't rise to the level of being an articulate political position -- liberal OR conservative OR other.
