And, one day, Kyl and his ilk wake up on the streets...
And, the US has been transformed, and Blacks and Latinos are the dominant population, and he is a poor homeless whiteman on the street...
And, as he goes through is day, he is scorned and riduculed, he finds out that a NEW conservative government has shut down social programs, and he finds out very quickly how it looks from the bottom looking up.
And, of course, we have Rod Serling delivering the tag line
"Portrait of a rich white politician who turned a corner and found a world that he didn't know he helped create, a world he ignored, and a world he is now at the bottom of....Portrait of a Republican Senator living his his own Free-Market Paradise..in the Twilight Zone!"
And, just to make the argument MORE complex, the real tag line is military spending as a function of GDP?
In that ranking, Russia leaps to #2, and basically, all that says is, the superpowers post ww2 continued to spend large amounts of their GDP with military contractors and sort of remain in the same order they were in 1945?
There is NO neccesary extrapolation to more war-like on that list, it's pure economics.
Rich "don't tax me" types....at least, the pro-jocks are when they retire.
I remember Sir Charles Barkley was claiming he was going to run for Gov of Alabama as a Republican?
I was thinking Hayden Fry, but he is too old, and maybe no one remembers the glory days of Iowa football anyway? We still hate him out here for the 1995 Sun Bowl against my alma-mater, the U-Dub Huskies...(that's OK, we kicked his ass in two Rose bowls before that...)
riding Obama's coat-tails in Red districts in the house, for sure.
But, we MAY take out some creeps as well.
I keep telling folks, IF we put up someone that fits the WA-8, we CAN take out Sherrif Dave Reichert. It just can't be anyone as far left as Darcy Burner was. And, in WA, that does not have to be a Mike Ross blue dog type.
I'm hoping we limit it to maybe TWO in Senate and 10-15 in the house.
