    I mean, sure, it would have been irresponsible to let the National Capitalist American Families' Party win. But for a while there it was starting to look like Obama had figured out how negotiation works. Guess not. Now we're right back to the old, "Here, let me make some preemptive concessions that you can reject."

    "The great lie of democracy, its essential paradox, is that democracy is the first to be sacrificed when its security is at risk. Every state is totalitarian at heart; there are no ends to the cruelty it will go to to protect itself." -- Ian McDonald

      The handwriting was on the wall.
