130. I'm not so sure: Americans have very short memories, you know
By the time Obama's second term comes around, Americans will have forgotten all about Gitmo, official torture and murder, extraordinary renditions, Abu Graib, illegal wiretapping, America's pariah status among the community of nations, the depression, the housing crisis, the staggering deficit spending, the officially-encouraged outsourcing of American jobs, the devastation of New Orleans, government corruption, the manipulation of the media, the massive tax breaks for the uberrich and the unprecedented widening of the chasm between rich and poor, and all of the other joys that Republican ideas have conferred upon us over the last eight years. If Americans truly are willing to support that apocalyptic vision for their country rather than see their country move even the tiniest measure closer to the standard of gun control uniformly embraced by the modern, developed world, well, I think they ought to have to come out and admit that in the broad light of day, while the memory of what they're choosing to support rather than having to give up a few extra rounds in their magazines is still fresh.
