  •  I spent some time in the USSR (12+ / 0-)

    and other East Bloc countries back when there was still communism worth talking about. Talking to the apparatchiks there back then was no different from talking to teabaggers today. The same structures of thought, the same closed worldview, just with different canonical texts and a different lacquer on the talk. To a tee.

    And if we don't want to have a USSR-style breakdown in this country, we have to defeat these people. There is no other way.

    Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.

    •  Talk to my friends who left the USSR! (5+ / 0-)

      EVERY one of them will tell you that Republicans act, think and talk just like Soviet Communists.

      They will tell you that there is NO difference between the American Press and TASS/Izvestia/Pravda.

      They will tell you that American churches act just the same way that Soviet Communist Party cells did.

      They also point out that where American Republicans say God and Jesus, Soviet Communists said Marx and Lenin.

      They also note that just like the Soviet Politburo, Grover Norquist has his weekly Politburo meetings with fellow Party members...
