Let the world change you... and you can change the world

Deja Vu All Over Again

As the inevitability of Mitt Romney’s GOP nomination slowly sneaks up on reality, it occurs to me that the 2012 election is going to be a lot like the 2000 election, in which you may recall The Greatest Nation In The History Of The World somehow inexplicably elected The Village Idiot as president, and so began a non-stop eight-year train wreck, from which the jury is still out on whether or not that Greatest Nation will survive.

What got me thinking about the similarity is the non-stop lying machine that Romney has become.  This is EXACTLY the campaign strategy used by Bush in 2000.  You just make up shit out of the clear blue, and then rely on a feckless media to broadcast your message for you without bothering to challenge the veracity of it in even the slightest way.  And now we have these demonic Super Pacs which can deluge the media with whatever lies they want with no accountability at all.  It’s hard enough for Idiot Nation to digest and understand truth and facts.  When it is bombarded with total lies, with the media doing absolutely nothing to point out what outrageous lies these are — poor Idiot Nation doesn’t stand a chance in hell of making the right decision.  This Fall could be very ugly.
