GOP SWAY FACTOR Not working so well these daze.....Reason, Truth, and Sanity Gain Big Time
as Reality, Logic, Common Sense, Intuition, and Pain Level leaps higher and higher....

BS can sell mostly to the Easily Fooled....

Current conditions indicate The Easily Fooled Group is diminishing big time....its members learning to listen to the TRUTH of GOOD JOURNALISM are joining the ranks of Being ....ASTUTE....learning and trying to start with.....

The Spiral of GOP LIES have Peaked....or so we hope.....The Redundency of their outrageous lies grew to a Jading Effect Level.

The Latest Attempt at Massive Bull Shit is Bushie Boy using his BIG SWAY ...He wants the Crew to spread the good word about his good 2 terms in the WH.....and he wants us to smile as we swallow ....

Well, I think the SWAY FACTOR these Dudes once enjoyed/used is over and Passe.

1. I hope you're right....I know you're right because people woke up
and expressed their dismay with the republican party in the last election. However, there are way too many assholes still on the loose spouting bullshit and swaying too many people. I guess some are just unreachable.

5. I think you are spot on. Even the old cultural war themes are failing
people are not buying the old gay bashing rhetoric like in the old Jerry Fatwell days.

9. The repig war on science was pretty daunting and destructive
and their war on education, as well.

Those go hand in hand, people vote against their own interest, are kept confused by "disinformation" and then staunchly defend their reich wing misinformation data base and insist that man and and dino walked the planet together and there is no anthropogenic climate change.

All of those lies for power and $$$. Geez, way past time for all of that to go bye- bye.

13. I Concur, BUT
I concur that the news media are being effected by the economy, but I also think that the sour economy also cut the effectiveness of right-wing propaganda. It's hard to believe that the billionaire boyz have the average working salary man and working stiff's interests at heart after the pink slips come, the house moves towards foreclosure, and the remaining savings start dwindling like well-water during a long drought.

Believing right-wing bunkum was something many righties could afford to believe in during flush times when Newt was riding high and Bill Clinton was fighting a rear-guard campaign to preserve as much of the New Deal and Great Society as he could; now that so many of the public and private protections of post-New Deal America lie in ruins and genuine hardship has set down at the kitchen table, many erstwhile right-wingers are being forced to go through a reality-check.
