    over to Democrats and the DeLay gerrymander collapses.

    Attack the base.

    Texas went nuts when the rightie billionaires learned that they could push phony "social issues" (wrapped in racism, tied with anti-abortion) to get the votes of poor Whites.

    Same as Kansas.

    The "Reagan Democrats." Typified by Macomb County in Michigan, which as been studied to death by poli sci demographers.

    Now they've jumped the shark.

    Right wing propaganda sells nothing but paranoia. Insane schemes, impossible denials of scientific facts, even going back to whining about communism.

    Texas is dying from drought, but the bastards are trumpeting Global Warming denial and still not building more reservoirs.

    It's the John birch Society which is nobody's idea of a "tea party." The same money, same crazed propaganda themes. Same underlying hatred of elective democracy. Billionaire financed madness.

    So yeah, kill 'em on Global Warming. Call 'em out on bat-shit crazy.

    Call 'em loopy for the NRA claim that there's 2,500,000 "defensive gun uses" a year in America. The crazy bastards think we're living in a "Batman" movie.

    It's fewer than 25,000 a year for civilian defenses, of course mostly at small businesses when the proprietor defends against an armed robber. And those shootings produced only 232 corpses in 2010. That's from 369,000 armed robberies, same year, courtesy of the FBI.

    Who do you believe: the FBI or NRA ???

    If you're dumb enough to believe NRA, vote Republican. You must like being lied to.

    "Have you left no sense of decency, sir, at long last?" Army Attorney to Sen. McCarthy, 1954. "We have done nothing to be ashamed of. We have nothing to apologize for." NRA 12/14/2012.
