To the newest member of the vast left-wing conspiracy. Sane conservative John Cole gives the middle finger to the Republican party, re-registers as a Democrat. Says he: "I certainly don’t agree with all their positions, but they are not bat-shit crazy like the GOP. That has to count for something."

Yeah, John, it counts for something, but not much. In the end, we're still all fucked good and hard up every orifice until the vast majority of the people decide that our current leadership class (Republicans and Democrats both) is morally and intellectually corrupt and needs to be either booted out of power or, if they refuse to relinquish power, strung up from the nearest lamp-post. Until then, if the Democrats nominate a cheese sandwich, I'm voting for the cheese sandwich. But only because it's not bat-shit crazy like the GOP, not because I expect the cheese sandwich to do anything for me other than sit there and quietly molder.

  1. It better be made of American cheese, or I won't vote for it! ;)

  2. Heh. I have to say that I was always guardedly optimistic about a Dem majority. I was mostly happy in 2006 because nobody could accuse Democrats of being serial election-losers anymore.

    That said, I suspect that the Beltway Dems are too used to the same old behaviors. Typical Beltway crap.
