These two posts are must reads for Democrats and Republicans, although I don't have much hope that the latter will partake of these words of facts and wisdom. Certainly they will not take the time to reflect upon them. This is predictable but most regrettable and, unfortunately, some of my Democratic friends may be in need of a few reminders.
On Infidel753's The right is still wrong, the author reminds us, "There's an election battle to fight, and the stakes are high." Indeed they are and the night will be long and turbulent.
Infidel ends with this observation: "The Democrats have certainly disappointed me in some ways. But the simple fact is, there are only two options on the table, and one of them is far worse than the other."
In the body of his article, Infidel links his readers to a very profound piece at The Saturday Evenining Post. Entitled Questions Every Tea-Party and Republican Candidate MUST Answer, Jack Jodell raises 10 questions, each built around seveal more questions, we've probably asked ourselves many times but rarely at the same time and probably not as precisely or as well articulated.
As Infidel writes:
Everything is there: the systematic obstructionism, the lying, the hypocritical moralism, the too-selective fixation on the deficit, the "pro-life" incoherence, the paranoia, the policies that would benefit the richest and most powerful at the expense of everyone else, the flirtations with atavistic bigotry, the lack of a program to address real problems.Memorize it for the next time you do battle with someone on the right side of nowhere.
