Another Writer Goes "Full Driftglass"

It’s also unfair to pretend that the wings of both parties are equally irrational. Any casual observer of American politics can see clearly the evolution (or de-evolution) of the Republican Party from the days of Eisenhower to the reign of the Tea Party. Democrats have, if anything, moved rightward after the adoption of the liberal-minded policies of the 1960s (race and gender equality, anti-imperialism, liberalization of drug laws, etc.) was considered a losing strategy for Mondale, Carter, et al. Thus, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to convince liberals to further moderate their views in the interest of appeasing a wayward party whose policies are vehemently opposed by the left.
Which is nice.

By the way, Mr. Glass (;-), did you know it was this photoshop that made me start watching The Walking Dead?

It's true. I had no idea what the source was, so I plopped it into Google Image search and found the source image ... and was intrigued!

Just finished watching seasons 1, 2, and the first half of 3. Looking forward to the show coming back next week!

And no, this is not a spam comment. I'm a real fan and a real listener of your podcast!

Maybe you and Fran should set aside 10 minutes from each show to talk about Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead... Assuming you watch the latter.
