    I hesitate to call the Rethugs propaganda ideas, while admitting that the GOP and its phalanx of commissars has always tried to sell its propaganda as such.

    I think what they do, to this day, is invent pretext and intricate rationalizations for screwing people out of their money, power, and whatever else their corporate cronies want.

    There are dozens of examples of this, from the "deregulation" of the energy markets that created Bush-friendly Enron to "outsourcing" of military operations that created Cheney-friendly Halliburton.

    In the end, I agree with Edwards and I think Obama is wrong to call the GOP rationalizations "ideas".  It gives them too much power.  We should call them what they are: propaganda designed by malevolent forces to destroy our nation.

    PATRIOT I+II, MCA, FISA CAPITULATION, NOW TORTURE. YOUR COUNTRY IS SLOWLY BEING DISMANTLED. WHAT R U GONNA DO ABOUT IT?
