Four More Years Of Decline
So, Barack Obama is going to be president. Oh, I'm not entirely unhappy about this; I voted for him as the lesser of two possible disasters, but let's face it, the country is headed for disaster fast and there's not a whole lot we can do about it.

All you have to do is look at the responses from the right regarding Obama's re-election. They're in full-on Taliban mode: "Everything the other guys do is evil and wrong. Everything we do is therefore good and right. It doesn't matter how many people seem to be hurt by what we do, we are doing the Lord's work."

That's nothing compared to what's going on in the hard-right economic blogs, where the general meme is "The country is doomed if we don't get our way. If its doom comes a little faster because of our intransigence, so be it."

So don't expect the "fever" on the right to break. If anything, it's about to set in concrete.

I replied, but I think it went into the spam filter (again).

One http:// link triggers the thing? Very bad design. I suspect a lot of replies are ending up there.
