But the Ideology Industry has developed it’s market and continues to evolve.

I am only upset it was not a landslide and the Democrats/Obama allowed the GOP a comeback to take back congress in the midterm and the GOP that made the comeback was the kook fringe not the old fashioned Eisenhower Republicans. That still bothers me.

I do want a healthy 2 party system but what we have now is a moderate party in the Democrats and a wingnut kook party in the GOP that one and maintains local political victories by playing up racial and religious tribalisms.

But unlike you I am enjoying the gloating!

The battle to defend the light from the darkness is never over, because the forces of darkness are very strong, and they will never cease in their efforts to extinguish the light. Sometimes we win victories to expand the light, and sometimes we just preserve what we have gained, but we will never be able to rest on our laurels because victory has been secured. The battle continues from generation to generation, and it will never end until the light is permanently extinguished.

I'd feel better if the Dow hadn't tanked over 300 points today.

Republicans will never be able to be able to exploit Citizens United fully unless they find a way to decouple themselves from the shrill religious whackos.

There were a lot of split tickets this year which tells me that the country isn't quite as ideologically split as the Republicans would like it to be.

Which will be hung on Obama but the same people who supported the fiscal cliff, the height of intellectual dishonesty.

After hearing Speaker Orange Boner today, it sounds like Grover Norquist is still the speeding drunk behind the wheel, and the GOP is along for the joyride off the cliff.

"Wowie Zowie" is what [Pamela Zarubica] says when she's not grouchy...who would guess it could inspire a song? No one would guess. None of you are perceptive enough. *Why are you reading this?* -- Liner notes for "You Didn't Try to Call Me" (yes, really) on "Freak Out!"
