    enough in '08 when Democrats did promise change with the suggestion that change meant a break from the Bush/Cheney policies.  So what are Democrats promising this time other than "we suck less?"

      These guys are seriously batshit crazy. They also stomp on unarmed women.

      And you won't lift a finger to keep them out of office?

        Here in Mississippi, I will indeed vote.  But, my one blue vote will be like taking a glass of water to douse a forest fire.

        It is not oxymoronic to, on the one hand, criticize the Dems for letting the fire burn out of control, while on the other, still bringing your glass of water anyway--for what little good it'll do on election day.

          Two years ago Obama had no chance of taking the south, but he and his black church were organizing and getting out the vote anyway.

          Find some like minded people and put your glasses of water together.

            What makes you think I haven't? You don't know me, and I don't appreciate the "I know your political situation better than you" tone.

            I drag the people I know to the polls every election.   And, a lot of good it does. We just elect a fucking idiot like Travis Childers or Gene Taylor, who spend their terms acting more Republican than even the Republican.
