  •  The nutcases are out in force (4+ / 0-)

    I think a lot of us figured racism would fade away when Obama was elected in 2008. So much for that dream.

    •  Of Course. We're In a Base-Intensive Midterm Elec- (5+ / 0-)

      tion contest now. Sane and moderate voters don't turn out.

      Now is the time when RW extremism pays off.

      •  Sure the hell hope not. (0+ / 0-)

        if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      •  Gee, wonder what the President is going (0+ / 0-)

        to do to fire up the Left. Cut the safety net?

        When 1% take 121% of the gains from "recovery", people actually recovering from lost employment are trading down on wages and benefits. Current strategies by moderates don't even consider winning the Class War.

    •  Not me. I didn't want to vote for PBO in 2008... (0+ / 0-)

      ...because a backlash of some sort seemed inevitable. Our progressive agenda has taken a beating as RepubliCorp exploited the passions of the TeaPuppets, but now I think that a successful Obama Presidency will do more to marginalize racism as a political force than anything else we could have done.

      Politicians who promise LESS government
      only deliver BAD government.

      •  I think you may be right. As long as the voters (0+ / 0-)

        get to the polls.
