12. Remove the name from any number
of our actions of late...describe Gitmo, our invasion of Iraq, our stolen elections, our supplanting of privacy with police powers, our neglect and abandonment of the poor in favor of the rich....

Describe any of these things without saying WHO was doing it and people (esp RWingers) would immediately accept that they happened and assume they had occurred in some nasty evil vile place like Cuba or China or ...yes IRAQ...

But then tell them that it happened here in the good ol US of A and OMG NO IT CAN"T HAPPEN HERE.

I can't count the number of times I've made this exact argument over the last 5 years...and yet the RW is freaking out because Durbin dared to ask the question on one, extreme, narrow, and utterly obvious case.

This country has simply lost its mind.
