The Revolution Will be Televised

I didn’t think it was possible for him to get any crazier, but then

What’s amazing to me is that we’ve already had a couple of incidents of Beck-inspired near bloodshed.  And then Glenn goes on teevee or the radio and makes some quiet noises about how he [cough cough cough] abhors violence, and that’s good enough for the powers that be at Fox and he’s back at it again the next day.

Jesusy Republican pols sure do like the idea of killing people.

Here and here.

There was a moment there, early on, when it looked as though sanity might prevail, if even in only in some small way.  But…no.  Our Rulers have decided that the only way to restore our economy is to drop mountains of money on the criminals who created the crisis in the first place, while issuing stern lectures from the Wall Street Journal opinion page and the cables about the Very Serious necessity of the little people sucking it.

There’s just no tense situation that this psychopathic clown can’t make more dangerous.

Psychopaths Rule Our Discourse

The Ol’Perfesser:

JUST WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW: North Korea fires artillery barrage on South. If they start anything, I say nuke ‘em. And not with just a few bombs. They’ve caused enough trouble — and it would be a useful lesson for Iran, too. We can’t afford another Korean war, but hey, we’re already dismantling warheads. . . .

What kind of human do you have to be to so causally call for this kind of violence?  Obviously, such a thing would pretty much signal a horrendous and utterly catastrophic turn in the course of human history.  The bloodshed and suffering would be positively incalculable and the United States would be forever remembered as a global mass-murderer. And all that means so little to this insane asshole that he even manages a stab at New START.

The only question is when does Newt hop on board?

Um…Never Mind

And this, my dear friends, is why we’re so totally fucked as a civilization.

I don’t know what happened to make everyone so goddamned crazy and mean and apparently completely unable to recognize their own bullshit, but we need to get over it and get over it fast.
