RE: Looks like Al Franken is really getting to him
I hear his ratings are way off. His radio show is a flop. It's also not just him - I've noticed the right wing echo chamber in general is becoming more shrill and more, well, crazed. One problem with tying yourself so tightly to one political party, when they go down you go down too. Bush's and the GOP huge drop in poll numbers, down to 37% in one poll, has got to be scaring the shit out of that whole crowd. They seem to be reacting to it by going on this huge demonization binge, as if the strategy is to smear themselves back on top. I don't know if it is going to work. The right wing's message is just so full of contradictions, and all they seem to have to offer is vague generalities, I think people in general may not be buying this stuff as blindly as they used to. If the public begins asking more and more questions, they are all doomed. They may be floundering. They can't even get their Hillary smear operation to work right among themselves:
Now if some would just exposed Mr. Coulter as a transvestite.....
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
