I am still enjoying the great sense of relief I feel every time I’m reminded that President Obama has been re-elected. As Joe would say, it is a BFD. That relief has been enhanced by rain of wingnut tears as they realized how much of a beating they took in the 2012 election. I’m very thankful for all of that.
And yet, I also know that it is far from over. The wingnuts can and will continue to do damage to the world, the Nation and people from all walks of life. They are at war with reality. Get ready for more crazy. The Wingularity is a long way off.
You could dip a teaspoon into the news stream and come up with dozens of fresh examples everyday. I came across this one this morning:
Republican lawmakers in Michigan, a state which eliminated tax credits for children last year, have proposed a tax credit for unborn foetuses of 12 weeks gestation
So, when the nutters took control of Michigan, one of their first actions was to take away tax credits for families with children (those moochers needed to be punished). Now they want to give tax credits to zygotes and the unborn. Typical. Their fantasies must be feed and they get extra satisfaction if they can flip the bird to reality while they do it. Extreme, crazy and dangerous, they are doing wonders for the Republican brand. I’m thankful for that even as I know the fight will go on for years.
Now I’m off to get the bird out of the brine and into the oven.
How about an open thread.
