I'm glad to hear the right being openly racist

From the GOP leadership's jabs at Obama's "turnout" to less subtle cries about the demise of America from people like Rush - we are hearing more blatant racism & classism from higher levels than we have in a long time and that's a good thing.

Why is it a good thing?

Listen carefully, what you are hearing is desperation. You are hearing the dying cries of a monster. You are hearing the anger & bargaining phases of grieving. It is on its back scratching and biting blindly at whatever it can.

It will still be decades before this beast is nearly a myth but there is nowhere for it to go but into hiding. It's done this before but there is a difference this time. This time women and minorities made the difference. This time women and minorities are sitting in seats of power that were held by the oppressors. The balance of power has shifted and that shift is moving upward.

The younger generations want less and less to do with the monster.

I really didn't think I'd see this in my lifetime. I'm glad I am here to watch.

2. You are citing a satirical piece as real, re: Buchanan
