Nothing will change until greens mount some primary challenges and collect some scalps. I agree. I would join, give money to, and vote for a Green Party that was organized around this proposal. We shouldn’t get all Lawrence of Arabia until we’ve actually tried real, dirty politics. Which we haven’t. Because we’re sissies.
Dittoheads and Socialists
I have to say, it’s been a long time since I felt like the Democrats did anything politically savvy, but I think running with the recent re-branding of Rush Limbaugh as the head of the GOP qualifies. Incredibly both Fox and the Huffington Post seem almost to agree on the substance of the story: the GOP is currently in disarray, and searching for leadership. The dittohead masses that follow Limbaugh are a big enough voting bloc that the party’s current nominal spokesmen cannot be seen to oppose him too much outright, lest he savage them from his bully pulpit.
