Still too damn true...

Using Frances Trollope’s infamous and very funny book, “Domestic Manners of the Americans”, as its springboard, this essay about America’s “religion of denial” is classic, and just as true under Obama as it was under Bush. Perhaps more-so, considering how Guantanamo is still open and the combination of law enforcement with military enforcement and domestic spying has only grown stronger under Obama even as the GOP and Tea Party have exhibited verifiable signs of insanity. of the definitions of insanity is doing the same action over and over, always expecting a different outcome. And what had the House GOP done for the umpteenth time? Voted to rescind Obamacare, even though there is no chance their bill will pass the Senate or not be vetoed by the President. It's no longer theater; it's just fucking stupid.

I so despise the GOP, I think I'll make them the bad guys in OT. If Jake'll let me. Thing is, he's too honest to pull that.
