I'm a recovering Republican. They left me at the altar when they represented Commando Guy as presidential timber.

I'm more afraid of the Desider n Cheef than of Obama.

My complaint with many of my fellow conservatives is that they treat politics like football. If Greenbay is your team, it matters not if they play poorly, cheat or use drugs.

Likewise the cheeseheads of the GOP installed a messianic smurf to the most powerful job in the world: a man who didn't know the difference between Shia and Sunni; a man who cannot find Iran on a map; a man who has defiled the currency, the Constitution and the prestige of America--because he had the testosterone of a lion, but the ethics of a hyena.

There is nothing Obama could do to the courts, the Cabinet or the budget that compares with the last eight years.

And perhaps a Black Panther at Justice might tell us who shorted their United stocks in the weeks before 9/11.

It will be interesting to see if the well developed, if now structurally fatigued, ideological infrastructure on the right election remains strong enough to hold off the promising, yet far from complete, infrastructure on the left this cycle. We "want" change, but given the choice between change and the flawed known, we tend to fall back on the flawed known, hoping against hope that some unknown factor can nudge it into a better version of itself.
