  •  "kind of uncomfortable"? (13+ / 0-)

    Personally, I'm terrified.

    Of my own government.

    Consider what's happening in Wisconsin. Now consider that Scott Walker clearly intends to be President of the United States, and have full access to the most powerful tools of suppression ever imagined.

    Impossible, you say? Let's hope. Some of us remember saying exactly the same thing when W. first started making noises about going for POTUS -- that could NEVER happen. Far too stupid and crazy... Well, Scott Walker is W. on steroids. And he has the Koch billions behind him.

    Still just "kind of uncomfortable"?

    •  Hell, the day before St. Ron was elected the first (8+ / 0-)

      time, I bet a friend dinner it would never happen.

      Despite the polls, I couldn't believe the American people would do something as downright bizarre as elect Ronald Reagan President.

      You'd think that even people here with unwavering confidence in the intelligence, thoughtfulness and goodwill of Barack Obama would be given pause by the nightmare likelihood that someday a Thug will wield these powers.

      Well we'd better make sure that never happens then. Shut up and GOTV.

      When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...
