By Stephanie Devereaux -- I keep saying that Republicans hate democracy, but I have a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach that if we
analyzed the situation carefully we would find that in fact it is nothing that comprehensible -- or respectable.
. .I I I think it is as simple that democracy does not matter to them. or to the extent that it does --
it is mess -- and a nuisance. What matters to the Scott Walkers, the Snyders, the Scotts, and Christies is that they have found a way -- patterning themselves after the Rush Limbaugh career track -- that totally valueless individuals with megalomaniac personalities can indenture themselves to billionaires (thanks again to Citizens United) -- and shock and astonish themselves and everyone who knew them by becoming relevant in the life of America in an enormously negative way.
They represent that generation of morally bankrupt and intellectually vacuous opportunists that come along every generation or so and bring fascism
and totalitarianism with them like monarchy and dictatorships are brand new ideas they have discovered and fallen in love with -- because by serving their "economic royalist" masters they can somehow propel themselves out of their existential ennui and somehow become relevant and larger than life (in their own minds) in an otherwise confusing and daunting world. You have to feel sorry for them -- on the one hand -- and sorry for Wisconsin, New Jersey, Michigan, Ohio, Florida -- and the Unites States, America, and good Americans everywhere across this good land -- on the other.
It is sobering -- and not without angst -- to consider that this morally bankrupt bastard in Wisconsin -- who has done so much harm to that state -- and to America -- is even still considered to have a chance to survive this recall -- just because a few despicable billionaires have ponied up millions -- to keep their own personal Genghis Khan and democracy-executioner alive and well in the governors mansion in Wisconsin.
It is my fervent hope that -- in the fullness of time -- all of their souls will burn in hell for what they have done to the rest of us!
