A Tiny Revolution: Welcome To The Terrordome

[Emphasis added.] Whether McCain wins or not, Sarah Palin is a harbinger of the future. The fact there was no one able to prevent McCain from choosing such an obviously inadequate imperial manager, and choosing her in such a bizarre, panicked way, indicates that—as during the decline of Rome, or the last years of Saddam’s regime—everyone sane has already been eliminated from the power structure. And thus we’re left with nothing but the whim of whoever’s clambered to the top of the Crazy Pole.

Meanwhile, in St. Paul, police are arresting journalists and legal observers in town to cover convention protests.

    Schwarz’s analysis totally explains the 2003 California recall election. If that ever happens again, I’m sure Gary Coleman could win.

    I don’t know guys. I was a nerdy 12 year old who watched the police riot (with a goggle eyed Walter Cronkite and a bloody Dan Rather) of the Police Riot at the ’68 Dem convention in Chicago. Same as it ever was… Although I was sorta hoping Howard Kurtz would get a few licks…
    And the movie of The Chicago Tenis due out soon.
    I think the attitudes are the same: these dang protesters are out to destroy the Government! (of course, it was Johnson then and Shrub now..)
    There is such willful ignorance abroad in the land…

    Cronkite and Rather, huh? Well, it’s not exactly Brian Williams getting his face smashed on a parked car out there, this time. But yeah, we didn’t get to this point overnight. Surely a lot of bumps needed to be worked out over the years to get things running this smoothly. (I mean, the Democrats hardly even noticed the protesters in the chain-link-and-chicken-wire free speech zones not within 700 feet of the Pepsi Center.)
