Flimsy Sanity: I also believe this

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

I also believe this

i begin to wonder if the republicans even WANT to win this election. i mean, they got their money, right? they got control of the oil. they've pretty much guaranteed that universal health care and social security reform (remember that?) are pretty much non-starters at this point. all the corporations are as big and vertically integrated and unregulated as possible. education is in the toilet. habeus corpus has been repealed. all the jobs are overseas. bible-thumping, homophobic christian fundamentalism is rampant. 1984 has come true (thanks AT&T!). they've established a homeland gestapo. they've killed an absolute shitload of brown people, both here and abroad. and they've pretty much guaranteed that the dems are gonna smell like shit for the next 4 years as all this sinks in. i just can't see anything more they could want.

and you guys are surprised that instead of choosing a VP candidate they opted instead to just pick up a bobble-head doll from the gas station around the corner. really?

    Maybe actual Republicans want to win the election, but the ruling class is choosing Team B for the next cycle, in my opinion.
    Obama's got the big money behind him.
    They put in Team B and the country breathes a sigh of relief. Everything will be OK now.
    And then they bring back the draft and invade Iran and Pakistan. Or whatever they have planned.
    It's like those movies when the heroine struggles until the sheriff shows up, and then relaxes, but, oh no!, the sheriff is in cahoots with the bad guys!

    Yes, they've dug the country into such a hole that the next president will be forced to do some very unpopular things (spending cuts and tax increases) in attempting to climb out of it. It won't be pretty.
