The elections of 2008 are rapidly approaching and bringing a looming sense of guarded optimism. Well they were until recently. Now they have the added bonus of comedy.
The Republican Party has finally gone totallly insane. Mind you, they are still evil and capable of scaring enough low information voters to make the 2008 elections a lot closer than they should be. But they have reached a level of desparation that is actually heartening to see. The choice of "Mooselini" to the ticket was bizarre. Until you realize that Creationists/Rapturists make up a large part of their vote. I'm not sure whether that's funny or scary. It was very scary that in 2004 this group gave us four more disastrous years. But Americans are not that stupid anymore! They won't fall for the same bullshit as they did four years ago.
