Quote of the Day...

From William Rivers Pitt, emphasis mine:

2010 is shaping up to be the Year of the Hate Crime in America, thanks in large part to right-bent Republicans and their Tea Party allies who have nothing to run on in the upcoming midterms. Think about it; would you want to run for office as a Republican these days? Their dearest economic ideas gave us the current recession, their foreign policies resulted in a war we lost in Iraq and a war we're losing in Afghanistan, their environmental designs have resulted in yet another oil rig detonation in the Gulf of Mexico, a great many of their supporters don't believe in dinosaurs because the Bible doesn't mention them, and their biggest national superstar is Sarah Palin, who by all appearances is so drastically stupid that she couldn't figure out how to pour piss out of a boot if there were directions on the heel...


Piss nearly poured out of me after I read that! Spot-on criticism. And well-deserved, too.

The rest of the article is almost as sober as a judge, but not quite. It concerns the right-wingers' propensity for spreading fear and hate when all else fails, and what that often leads to. But in this case, it adds something else that this can lead to, and for once, did.

Hint: check the labels for this post. Then give the article a read...
