At Least They're Committed



A brief reminder that there are tens of millions of Americans who have absented themselves from the political process completely -- who are either completely oblivious to how utterly demented the GOP has become, or have dug themselves into the Both Siderist shitpile so deep that they're never coming out.

If any significant fraction of that group ever got off the fucking bench and into the business of basic citizenship, come next November the GOP Rolling Fiasco Carnival would be kaput. Conversely, as long as the media keeps pumping Both Sides Do It toxin into the political water table, they have no incentive to lift a finger.

Which is why turning the pimping of Both Siderism from a resume-builder into career suicide should be the Left's top priority.

There is nothing to be done about they crazies on the Right.  They're committed and nothing is going to turn the around.  But with an act of sustained and focused effort, we could take out their valets, chauffeurs and drool-bucket handlers in the Beltway.

When you live in a country where the right to not be shot in school is an EXTREME and RADICAL position...

I wonder if David Brooks and his ilk would consider killing half the Jews the perfectly moral position.

How? A pundit poll. A website with a pundit rating system with commentary on why Krugman should be a 9.3 and Brooks should be a 0.4, on a scale from 1 to 10 :*) Fact check, history check, science check, economics check, etc. Make 'em sweat the numbers!

Out of curiosity, do the the Democrats deserve any of the blame you are heaping on those of us who wish a pox on both houses? Moreover, do you believe you technique of shaming and indignant self-righteousness is going to be effective at convincing the disgusted and apathetic at joining you in the mud pit?
As for me, I don't vote for gangsters. So I'll vote for whomever tells me that they intend upon using RICO statutes to shut down the criminal syndicates that currently infest the political landscape. While I do not know who will win the elections, I can just about guarantee the American populace will lose.
