    My take on the State of our Union, based on comments here, is that It's Over,  They Have All The Power/Money/Media.  

    I'm with you, Kos.  It may take a while but we're on a swing toward real progressive governance.  And the gloom and doomers are always present, but the activists still kick ass despite it all.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      But I see plenty of setbacks ahead (especially, but not exclusively, at state and local levels) as the rightwingers fight tooth and claw, like cornered rats, backed with huge amounts of $$$$$$ by their millionaire/billionaire funders.  

      It's heartening to know that we're making progress but I'm worried that there will be some on our side who, when the next defeats come, will cry and throw up their hands and quit trying.

      I'm especially worried by the fact that America, in my lifetime, seems to swing back and forth between Democratic and Republican presidents.  That doesn't exactly encourage my confidence in the American electorate. <---this is an understatement.

      Still, the fact that Faux News and Limbaugh are losing influence is one of the best signs I've seen that maybe, just maybe, people are starting to wake up!
