Back yet again

In the end, I always come back.

I guess I was over-optimistic. I had hoped that somehow Obama's presidency would marginalize the right-wing.

Unfortunately, it just made them louder, scarier, and more crazy.

As long as lies are presented as facts, as long as irrationality gains enough current to riddle the US airwaves, every voice to the contrary helps. And so I'm back, to join the chorus of those who are proud of the US today, happy to see us refuting policies of the last 8 years, and hopeful that things can change for the better.

Awesome. But to nutshell it, offensive and imperfect cartoonist Ted Rall nailed it in his cartoon of a Democratic convention made up entirely of not-being-Bush. The Rethugs are Nazier than ever -- so what? The Harry Reid Democrats have marginalized the Rethugs (this extremism is part and proof of marginalization!) and exactly what good is that if you don't have any plan or initiative of your own?
