exzcuse me, but a knat is supposed to lift and jettison an elephant? the knat is going to get squished. the country and the planet are doomed if the crazies are not jettisoned, and if the democrats mess up in some really silly but unpopular way. wanna bet that democrats are incapable of doing that? "I do not belong to an organized political party. I am a democrat" Mark Twain, I think.The Republicans are going to have to find someway to jettison the crazies or they are doomed. Should be fun to watch either way.
I suppose romney is sane, and merely a panderer to the rightwing nuts. but if he is a mormon, there are things we do not know about his beliefs, that I would be certain that I would dislike intensely. It is too secretive and cultlike. for a President, especially. Not so awful for a governor or member of Congress. I did not even support Kerry in the primaries because of the skull and bones thing. I do not repent of preferring Edwards in 2004, rather than Kerry or Dean, though it was for his 60-page policy wonk booklet, which I read carefully, and for Elizabeth, whom I liked. I like populist progressive Democrats - starting with Harkin and Sherrod Brown, and Feingold - and the independent Bernie Sanders. Those with no chance of getting nominated, because the rich establishment types will stop them in the primaries, in order not to get defeated by corporate cash in the fall.
