In happier news, CNN has found that Americans are annoyed. Deeply annoyed. We are feeling, as Douglas Adams might have put it, a “bright, searing flame of annoyance.”
A majority of Americans surveyed — and a higher percentage than recorded during the same time last year — said things in the United States are going “badly.” Among this year’s respondents, 29 percent said “pretty badly” and 25 percent — up from 15 percent a month ago — answered “very badly.”
Only one in five was “content” — so I guess we know how many rich, white right-wingers there actually are in the US now: About 60 million.
This unrest translates into serious danger for the entrenched non-opposition
partei party, who may soon find themselves in a minority in the Senate and House as well.
Meanwhile I have to wonder how the “strong on defense” righties are going to justify the way they’ve let both North Korea and Iran — both plausibly much larger threats to national security than Iraq could ever have been — slip through their iron fists.
Get out and vote, folks. Start, where feasible, by going in on the Republican primary to torpedo their options. Vote for the most insane candidate you can, the one least likely to win. Then, on election day, vote a straight Dem ticket, even if you disagree with your local options.
An opposition Congress is the only way we’re going to have a hope in hell of saving this nation form the lunacy of Bush and Co. over the next two years.
