What YT Thinks Only Ruder

Not as many fuck, fucker, mother fucker, cocksucker swear words as I usually like to see fly from His Royal Rudeness' fingertips, but as always, he nails my thoughts exactly:
The Rude Pundit thinks this: the American public, in growing numbers, knows in its heart that they've been lied to, just like in Vietnam, and that Americans are being killed for those lies, just like in Vietnam. But fear is a powerful thing: deep, psychological, repressed fear - that if the truth is not held back, then the monsters of anarchy must be unleashed. It is better to take down a President for something a great deal more prosaic than war crimes and mass murder. Because what does it say about us if our leader is guilty of such things?

Which is why the Rude Pundit believes, hopes beyond rational hope, that other 'Gates are going to develop around George W. Bush, 'Gates that will move in tighter and tighter until they become increasingly strangling. And that's why this is a very interesting little development in the Jack Abramoff scandal: it seems that the White House was allowed to be used to fundraise for Abramoff's and Grover Norquist's various causes/pocketbooks.

Ahhh, the sweet relief of dirty money. Now there's something we can actually get our heads around.

Wanna bring down a President? Deep Throat said it best: Follow. The. Money.

It seems to me that the American public is suffering from a couple of generations of a dumbed down mis-education system that has produced millions of ignorant, superstitious, deluded, reactionary dupes that are so credulous to the Government Line that each generation has to go through a major war. The horrors of the these wars are then glorified and glamorized to prepare the next generation for a new
It's the same in many countries.
If the U.S. actually started educating American school children tommorow, It would take one or two generations for a reversal of the plunge to fascism that the U.S. seems hell bent on. It looks to me like the American Right has the day, and things will get darker, perhaps much darker, if right wingers don't go outside and give their heads a shake; take some deep breaths, turn off the hate-radio/TV stations; think; read/watch/listen to all alternative news sources, always doubt, and NEVER suspend your disbelief for anything!

Have a swell weekend...

Hey there DP. I hope you and yours are doing well.

We Americans are suffering from something, and sadly it's more than dumbed-down mis-education -- I dare say inbreeding may be involved, but I haven't been to the red counties in the midwest in years ;-)

Dang nice *seeing* you!

We're suffering from the fact that the Democrats have been such a disaster as a party for the last decade or so that millions of people are willing to vote GOP rather than for them. If they put a good candidate up in 2008 that's likely to change. If the whole party decides that Howard Dean is their poster child, then it's going to be another nightmare in 2008 and four more years of wondering how they fucked up (again).
