Here’s what I don’t get with the congrtessional hearings on putting alito on the supreme court. Why go through the pretense of hearings at all? We all know that the republicans are going to railroad another staunch conservative onto the courts. And that this new court will overthrow roe v. Wade as soon as possible.
We also all know by now that prospective appointees will refuse to answer questions about their values and philosophies and that this won’t ever stop their backers from voting in favor.
I read an article yesterday that talked about how markos from daily kos espouses a philosophy that the dems should be fighting the republicans at every turn, act totally partisan, and be purely focused on regaining power.
If markos is saying this I think he’s dead on with a brillaint insight. (Ill find out tomorrow at lunch.)
This is a stark contrast to the current strategy which I’d call ‘pussy politics’. The dems seem to be trying to sound like the republicans. I heard dean say on the daily show that they’d outdo the repubs on family values and religion…ridiculous. If you can’t beat em become one?
I believe in revolution not evolution. The lesser of two evils remains evil even if its called a democrat.
Any candidate accepting bribes is participating in our corrupt system no matter how they/we justify it.
Most of us have forgotten that the repubs came to washington as refromists. Will the mainstream now turn to the other ‘party’? For what purpose?
American politics and pretense of choice has surely become the new opium of the masses.
