  •  Coke or Pepsi... (1+ / 0-)

    That's are only two choices.  It's a matter of competence.  If people discover their Coke tastes bad, they will reach for Pepsi.  

    Irony: Apparently, the teabaggers would have apologized to the East India Trading Company for dumping their tea into the Boston Harbor.

    •  Even if they already know Pepsi taste much worse? (0+ / 0-)

      If the choices are tap water and piss, most of us are going for the tap water every time, even if it's looking awful rusty coming out of the tap.

      The Right Wing wants to take America back. The left wing wants to take America forward. Any questions?

        If the choices are tap water and piss, most of us are going for the tap water every time, even if it's looking awful rusty coming out of the tap.

        They see the choice as "piss, and more piss".

        They see both parties as ineffective and impotent, and happily willing to cave in to interests other than those of the public.

        And that is why most voters will stay home.

        And even more bluntly, many former Democratic activists who after 2008 watched the Dem Party piss in our face again and again and again and again, agree with them.

        We thoroughly deserve the thrashing we will get.  I can only hope we learn something from it.
