Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

And She Was This Close To The Presidency

I am putting this in a separate diary and on the front page for this marvelous bit:

If John McCain — and the entire goddamn Republican party, including the Republicans who pop up on liberal MSNBC — had had their way, we would now be in our sixth year of having this fking dimwit one short gasp away from the nuclear launch codes.

Palin got the NRA convention started on the right foot:

“C’mon! Enemies who would utterly annihilate America, they would obviously have information on plots. They carry out jihad. Oh, but you can’t offend them. Can’t make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen. Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

Nothing says WWJD like baptizing terrorists via torture.

Screw you, John McCain and anyone who thinks this woman idiot should have been anywhere near the White House.

    Issenberg on The Two Electorates and the Democratic Challenge For the Midterms

    All in all, I’d say reading Issenberg’s piece two or three times provides better guidance as to how the midterm campaign will develop than the next best twenty or thirty articles, not to mention the hundreds you will encounter that natter on self-confidently about the “referendum on Obamacare” or the “center-right nation” or the irresistible force of Americans for Prosperity ads. As he points out, the current alignment of the two parties with the parts of the electorate that do and don’t tend to vote in non-presidential contests isn’t eternal; for one thing, future cohorts of high-midterm-voting seniors are likely to be more progressively inclined than today’s. But for the immediate future, the Two Electorates is an abiding reality, and trying to understand either presidential or non-presidential cycles without comprehending that means stumbling around in the darkness.

    The article he is discussing is at The New Republic….keep the yucky pictures coming. Motivation to vote!

  2. One twitterer pointed out that it seemed a bit disrespectful to her religion to equate Baptism with torture.

    They really have no clue what their words mean. THAT is even scarier than the words themselves.
