Time Running Out?
From 2Millionth Web Log

Well, let's hope so--and while, yeah, we'll probably always have political factions opting for the lowest of roads, stopping their mouth-breathing only long enough to spew the most obscene lies and bullshit...TPM's calling it McCainism this cycle, I fully expect Palin to continue the same crap starting Wednesday morning if she's not laughed off the national stage...and while we can go back generations if we really want to search for a source (most likely some variant on the adage "no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the public...") it's somewhat of a relief to see such filth ringing hollow, at least this time. WHY it's failed is open to interpretation, of course. Personally, I'm not holding out hope of an electorate that's somehow become enlightened. Instead, I think the public has realized that REAL fears require far more competence than the conjured nonsense exploited by the likes of Karl Rove, et al. Hatred is a for small minds, to be sure, but a luxury that small minds can't afford, at least right now.

Well, if that's what it takes to throw the bums out, so be it. And while justice will hardly be served absent extended times in the stockade or pillory for large swaths of crooked officialdom, I'll settle for the end of their political careers...

One more day until the beginning of the end...we hope.
