Laugh or cry?

We were only going to link to the funny; we need to smile once in awhile.  But then we could not help ourselves, so here's the sad.  What bothers me is how certain this author makes it seem.  J knows as well as I do, that enough idiots vote in this country to make the sad a reality. 50 million chose McCain-Palin, willingly!  So if there are enough dumass, sums of bitches out there to pick another kit-shicking Texas moron and even dumber Quitter Queen (the new batshade ticket that would literally hit the self-destruct button), that would be as good a time as any to get out.  I have not seen the new Planet of the Apes movie, but maybe that Caesar chimp can run as an independent in 2016?  On a happier note, there won't be much of a country left to lead if all this comes to pass.

and, Scariest

We interrupt our new-found call to action with a depressing analysis (one man's opinion) of the current state of our nation and its democratically-elected leader.  Hey, we've been there: we said 'lover, not fighter', we bought the rope-a-dope style before, benefit of the doubt and all that.  We would still vote for someone smart over someone we can have a beer with, but we can do better.  Let's keep moving, let's change the system so one day, we can show them both what real 'progress' looks like.

On Wisconsin post-script, to turn a phrase: lament the 'playahs', hate the game.

Tinkers to Evers to

no Chance

[Modern-day, turned from Taibbi to Rich to Krugman; see our earlier posts.]

Maybe the small sliver of 'hope' remaining here is that enough of us are 'fired up' to find a viable 3rd-party candidate who can restore democracy to its rightful place among humanity's greatest achievements, right up there with fire and TiVo.
