It was a joke then. A few years later, not so much. If America is not stupid, how do you explain the way our government has functioned lately? Who chose Ron Johnson over Russ Feingold, smart people?

We see the world through our own biases, assume most other people see much the same. Not so. It is hard to predict how other people are gonna vote.

Walker does have the support of big money donors who know he is a compliant subject.

Regarding the economy, climbing from Death Valley to sea level is quite an accomplishment.... especially when it also requires running an endless gauntlet laid down by the party not in power. I'm not ready to believe that America is so stupid that it doesn't see this.


I would have been less ready to believe this if we hadn't witnessed normally reliably sane Wisconsin elect Walker twice. It's not even a question of smart or dumb, people just aren't paying attention. And most of the mainstream media is so neutered/complicit due to corporate ownership that this situation is not gonna get any better.

Brian Scweitzer, ex Montana governor, is going to run to left of Hillary. He's a guy that could get elected, I believe. I like the guy. I'll support Hillary in primaries if she runs, but it's good to see some alternatves. (Ross Douthat's column today is bogus, IMO. http://www.wnd.com/2014/06/democrats-ar ... oesnt-run/)
