Have the miserable Republicans succeeded in outfoxing the Democrats once again?
A week ago, we were talking about regulatory reform on Wall Street, and it seemed that the Democrats, for once in decades, were on the brink of getting the American people to understand which party was on their side and which party was nothing but a bunch of paid shills for the rich.
And then, all anyone wanted to talk about was a stupid, mean spirited law in Arizona that no one really thinks has a chance of making it through the courts. And by everyone, I mean not only the usual right wing talking-points slingers, but Randi Rhodes, Thom Hartmann, Stephanie Miller and the other liberals that we count on to provide some sort of antidote to corporate propaganda. And they all seem to have willingly forgotten that the damage done to us by a few thousand rich bastards on Wall Street is magnitudes beyond anything that a bunch of illegal immigrants could ever achieve.
Guys, forget about the sickening sideshow going on in Arizona, and get back to what this country really needs: making the rich pay a fair price for the damage they have done to the rest of us.
