Post-conventional ethics in the 2004 election.

Bush's policies reflect pre-conventional ethics, but are diguised as post-conventional. He pretends that his policies are pragmatic and principled, while they are actually self-centered and ethically egoistic.

Meanwhile, Bush has successfully painted Kerry's VVAW activites as pre-conventional while they are actually post-conventional. Because pre-conventional people are unable to distinguish between egotism and integration, the attacks have been largely successful. In fact, since Bush is most likely pre-conventional, he probably falls into this category himself.

More when I figure it out...
