Welcome to the real world.

Oh, darn ... sometimes, reality can be a real bitch, can't it?

I guess that's why you shouldn't spend all your time fellating the powers that be and working to become the best little authoritarian you can.

At least I don't. But then, I don't usually feel the need to write that kind of thing.

I'm not sure, but I think there were a couple of places in there where he went more than three sentences without pointing out how brilliant he is.

Someone like that is usually worth looking at. They'll provide the best defences for what is, at root, indefensible.

The US media, even when it's in "attack mode" is pretty tame, and pretty sloppy.

Once in awhile, an articulate, knowledgable partisan will throw something out that there's no immediate answer for.

By being so kind as to put it all online for ready reference, guys like this one give you access to the best arguments and gives us the ability to (usually inevitably) demolish them.

But in the end, dude here doesn't seem to clue in to the significance that yes, actually, his heroes have brazenly attempted to use the legal apparatus of the state as a personal hit-squad and voter suppression instrument, and to pull prosecutors who go after their own party's corruption.

That's actually pretty disgraceful. One such repug always used to say; 'both parties do it, that's politics,' to which i would answer that it ain't Canadian politics (this sort of brazen contempt for even the forms of impartiality) and that he ought to be calling for a revolution rather than taking the worst side of a sickeningly sick system.
