Meanwhile, I heard people calling in--Rs can't spew enough contempt on Dems, probably because they listen to rightwing radio or TV. It is truly sickening.
It's because they are terrified. They are mortally wounded and cornered. They have no defense, other than to spit and snarl in feral rage. I predicted after passage of the Patriot Act, that the undemocratic nature of this group of Republicans may well cause the complete demise of their party, and the GOP could go down the toilet of history, as did the Federalists before them (See: Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798)
. The smugness of the 1/3 of the population who are hard core Republicans, has been replaced by a mounting agonized fear, as it becomes clear that the Democrats are going to use their newfound power, with approval of the other 2/3 of the population, to expose six long years of criminal activity by their corrupt leaders. The fools really thought that history ended once their party assumed control of the government. Now, their narrow reptilian minds cannot grasp the fact that their free ride is over, and the stark light of truth will be cast upon the darkest pits of Republican corruption and deceit.
