  •  When Democrats stopped acting like Democrats... (14+ / 0-)

    ...it totally fucked up the neocon's political operations causing them to achieve beyond what even they thought was possible or ever right for the country.

    The father of the neocons, Fukuyama, in disassociating himself with neoconservativsm which he now proclaims as dead, actually lamented once that they'd defined their positions by counting on competent and historical Democratic behavior and when that didn't happen all hell broke loose - Bush/Cheney. Basically he blamed the DLC for dropping the ball and handing over the keys of the asylum to the lunatics.

      ... our loudest voices clamor for the election of a DLC leader to POTUS in '16?? That's not just dropping the ball and handing over the keys, it's joining them in cognitive dissonance.

      Being an atheist, prayer is not a choice. I've returned to an attitude adopted in 11/7/2000. Only now I'm living in a very unique era in human history, not just American. Little hope we will be able to stop the train from going off a bridge.

      It's been a fascinating journey for six decades, the last years may be the most staggering. If the pot laws go fully legal, it is likely to be a combination of fascinating and stupefying.

        The Villagers clamor, they get paid to set up races, raise expectations and drama, propose inevitability...but who or what they speak for is business...they feed on the horse racing but the breeders offer the field and the investors pick the runners.
