4. Even if they haven't lost the home yet, they definitely see the
value of their most valuable nest egg (for most repukes, even upper class ones) plunge.

And then there is that never ending pesky war in Iraq. And things are worse in Pakistan and Afghanistan (where we had kicked butt and taken names earlier). And the trip to Europe with the kids is out because the dollar isn't worth shit anymore... and gasoline is $3.20 or $3.50 a gallon and their SUV lovin asses can't stand going down to put $100 in every week. And then, for some of them, they secretly KNOW that global warming is real, even though they HATE that Al Gore is telling them about it. And it worries them too (in their little shriveled up heart of hearts). And then there are all those scandals from Bush... their Bush, the guy that looked them in the eye and said "I will restore honor to the White House". Sure, they are certain that most of those scandals are just so much sour grapes from those commie pinko LIEBRALS the Rush tells them about. But so many scandals, and some of them sex scandals or things that just don't seem right to anyone, like leaking the name of covert CIA operatives. And they know, in those dark places and late at night when their friends aren't around and the radio/TV isn't spewing the talking points... they know that Bush is incompetent and lied us into the war. And it eats them up.

And then look at who they have to choose from... robots like Mitt, St. Rudy of the 9/11, and some grumpy old men... and one scary evangelical.

If I were them, I would be suicidal.
