Well, here they come to Washington to make their feelings known, heavily financed and promoted:
The publicity granted to these non-events is a cousin to the phenomenon we have seen the last couple of weeks in which every lying, crazy neocon who supported the Bush Iraq aggression, up to the Himmleresque Dick Cheney himself, is invited on mainstream TV to attempt to gin up another round of disaster. We may be fighting a mirage in this country, but it is a mirage with so much money that, insubstantial as it is, it still has the power to destroy us.
P.S. Somehow, I recently got myself on a bunch of right wing e-mail lists. I just got an e-mail from one of the organizers of the NOM march, bragging about what a great success it was:
"Thousands of pro-Marriage activists showed up on the grounds of the Capitol to demonstrate their support for real marriage. My staff and a dedicated group of volunteers worked through the crowd for hours raising support for our national effort to impeach U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. The response from the attendees was overwhelmingly supportive!
Thousands proudly wore our “Impeach Eric Holder” badges. And nearly 25% of everyone there signed our Impeachment petition."
Well, there you go. The fantasy lives on.
