  •  I'm way too tired from watching yesterday's (1+ / 0-)

    inauguration coverage, which I recorded and still haven't fully caught up on (I recorded several channels and have also been editing and saving much of it for my video library), so I can't offer anything very substantive in response to this most excellent diary. But I'm watching Rachel talk on today's show how the VA legislature took advantage of the absence of a longtime black VA state senator yesterday who wanted to see the inauguration, to pass a sweeping new redistricting law that would effectively give the GOP a permanent majority in the statehouse no matter how blue VA got. Pretty scary stuff.

    We're at war with the GOP. Anyone who doesn't get that is in deep denial or just clueless. I'm glad that Obama's speech yesterday was so defiant and unapologetic, because that's what we need to fight the GOP, not mealy-mouthed calls for bipartisanship, which is literally impossible until they're crushed. We're at war and we need to realize that we're at war, and act like we're at war, or WE will get crushed. These people are subverting democracy one state and district at a time, and even if we turn the whole country blue, they could still win strictly on manipulating the rules.

    We must crush them till they're (politically) dead. And then we have to drive a (political) stake through their (political) heart.

    And then (politically) kill them again.
