I am still getting e-mail from the Democrats begging me for money. One of them is from none other than James Carville.
Thought experiment: Picture Washington under total Tea Party control.
Mitch McConnell will privatize Social Security. Jim DeMint will end Medicare. And kiss the EPA goodbye since Tea Partiers think clean water tramples on their constitutional right to be poisoned. The Tea Party’s like kudzu – you give ’em an inch, they take MILES.
They get their crazy ideas through the House, and the Senate stops ’em. Thing is, they flip four seats, and their ideas will fly right on through. Our little thought experiment becomes an ugly-as-sin reality.
What you chose to do in the next 12 hours will determine who controls the Senate – Tea Party Republicans, or the rest of us. The DSCC’s still $75,000 short of its September goal. Your immediate gift – which will be matched – could put Democrats over the top. Don’t give, and the Tea Party just got tougher to beat. Your choice, folks.
This is from the man who told President Obama to panic after last week’s special election and said Obama should fire people (who?) and indict people.
There are certain people in American finance who haven’t been held responsible for utterly ruining the economic fabric of our country. Demand from the attorney general a clear status of the state of investigation concerning these extraordinary injustices imposed upon the American people. I know Attorney General Eric Holder is a close friend of yours, but if his explanations aren’t good, fire him too. Demand answers to why no one has been indicted.
Mr. President, people are livid. Tell people that you, too, are angry and sickened by the irresponsible actions on Wall Street that caused so much suffering. Do not accept excuses. Demand action now.
In other words, don’t worry if any actual crimes have been committed. Just indict people to help with your reelection.
As I watch the Republican debates, I realize that we are on the brink of a crazy person running our nation. I sit in front of the television and shudder at the thought of one of these creationism-loving, global-warming-denying, immigration-bashing, Social-Security-cutting, clean-air-hating, mortality-fascinated, Wall-Street-protecting Republicans running my country.
The course we are on is not working. The hour is late, and the need is great. Fire. Indict. Fight.
I don’t think the crazy person is in the Republican debates, except for Ron Paul. Frankly, getting federal spending under control and getting the EPA off our backs sounds a whole lot saner than what the Democrats are doing, spending us into bankruptcy. As for James Carville, I think his wife, Mary Matalin, should make sure he is taking his meds.
