    unfortunate, even dismal, situation that is made necessary by a party of loons at war with themselves to the detriment of the nation and its citizens. From a comment I made days ago:

    Most voters still have not gotten the message that support of any TP/GOP candidate, in any election, aids the continued control of power levers sufficient to cause this kind of shit. Yeah, I'll admit that probably somewhere, hidden in some cranny there is a candidate that is a "good gooper"—but that candidate will vote to keep bad goopers in sufficient power to either enact batshit bizarre stuff or derail good stuff being worked by opponents.

    For the time being, and I do hope it is not too long, the only good gooper is a politically dead gooper.

    At this point in our political life, except in the few very solidly and firmly fixed "blue" areas—and remember, we once thought of places such as Minnesota and Wisconsin as pretty "blue"—all the discussion about better Democrats at the general election stage is essentially selling out to TP/GOP control. The "better" is great at primary level, unless it puts at risk a sure fire seat, but to sit out or otherwise fail at that other necessary function of elections, flush the toilet on the crap the other side is putting up:
    All we can do is flush because otherwise the shit gets overwhelming. Not as nice as having a choice of a good and better meal, but a very necessary civic duty.
    The TP/GOP shit has built up to a critical, even dangerous level for the nation's future well being and it must be flushed in 2013/2014 at every possible level.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
