22. the usual, I guess
I've been feeling really pessimistic lately, what with the Bolton nomination (I've been watching some of the hearings), and talk of the nuclear option on the filibuster. And fully coming to believe the election was stolen.

I go over to the GD forums and it's the same old same old - just constant trashing of Democrats or "liberal bourgeoisie" (whatever that is) or the usual juvenile leftist crap (except it's grownups spouting it) and I get mighty discouraged.

Today I defended two politicians I don't like - in fact, really can't stand one of them - Lieberman and Biden. I just felt the attacks on them weren't justified. I mean - disagreeing on an issue or a vote is one thing, but to just make generalized smears for no other reason than to smear... it's like I went to sleep and woke up at FreeRepublic or something.

The nation is standing at the edge of the cliff of fascism and we're arguing about what color shoes to wear...
