State of the country

Sandra Day O’Connor has retired.
Now, I am scared shitless for this country. Not that she was any
great ally to those of us who still believe in the principles of this
country – you know, liberty, justice, human rights – “liberal”
values like that – but Fuhrer Bush will appoint much worse if he
can get them approved. And if Rehnquist retires or dies too, the
damage to the Supreme Court may be irreparable.

Rome sunk into theocracy when it became the Holy Roman Empire.
Spain sunk into fascism in 1492 after years of progressive Muslim
leadership. Germany and Spain succumbed to fascism in the 20th
century after being leaders of the Enlightenment. Perhaps
this is America’s destiny: to become a fascist theocracy.

On the other hand, maybe I am catastrophizing, and Bush II will appoint
another David Souter – an unknown Bush I had hoped would be
conservative, but who turned out to be a voice of reason and a
moderate-liberal.

    Call me a doomsayer, but I think you’re dead on there.

    Sorry. I’d love to say something uplifting and optimistic, but I’m feeling more like the neocons are just kicking us while we’re down.

    Nice country we had here. Too bad it’s gone.
