I've been suffering from an arthritic flare which makes it hard to think and type, so I've been exploring my "ally" blogrolls, and promoting the deserving.
You know, I'm sure they need those extra couple hits a month.

"Bush/Cheney, plus a compliant Congress and a Vaseline-spined press, plus the moral, fiscal and military blank check handed to them on 9/11 was everything short of the repeal of the Emancipation Proclamation they ever wished for. It was their Conservative Wet Dream Come True, and now it's a dream from which the dare not awaken lest their heads explode like 20 million Coelacanths in Low Earth Orbit.
Instead their Beautiful Minds scuttle deeper into denial and darkness, eyes clamped tighter and tighter shut, navigating now only by the virtual light of their own retinal flashes. And in this cave within a cave within an abyss, they tell themselves they see miraculous patterns everywhere, that explain everything.
Their own Duh’Vinci Code spun up out of whole cloth impelled entirely by their desperate and terrible need to be right when they are so clearly and horribly wrong.
Because like the psychotic Dominionist cult from whose diseased loins modern Conservativism springs, those that still support Bush cannot allow themselves to believe they are even a little bit wrong, because if one verse of the True Faith is wrong, then what about all the others?
Once even a smidge of doubt is allowed into their mental clean room, then everything is up for grabs, and it all starts to fly apart under the weight of its own corruption.
And they walked themselves into this circle of Hell one step at a time."
All hail the illigitimate and improbable son of Westbrook Pegler and H.L. Mencken.
