I started this blog in the Spring of 2008. That's somewhere about seven and a half years ago.
This is my 4,000th post. And the country is crazier and more filled with hatred than ever. Maybe I should just switch to posting pictures of Corgis, like this one from The Daily Corgi:
Now we have an out and out racist, promoting violence and oppression toward other groups, leading the Republican pack, and the more disgusting he acts, the stronger he seems to get. And if, by some sick, cosmic joke he wins the Republican nomination, we will see billions of dollars spent smearing his Democratic opponent. The people who support him are so past the point of being reached by reason, or any appeal to human decency, that it is foolish to even try. They will go to their graves as the hate and greed filled monsters they have become, no matter what we do.
It's a pretty bleak prospect. Life in America has even beaten down the Corgi lady. I'm still going, but for the life of me, I don't know why.
