“I have two grandchildren — Maggie is 11, Robert is 9. I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they’re my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American.”
Have you seen this little gem yet? Newt Gingrich said this to a church congregation. It’s so very FOX News, don’t you think? Just throw out lots of scary words, and one of them is sure to stick. Never mind that a secular, atheist country dominated by radical Islamists is exactly as possible as a bachelor who also happens to be married.
The good news, I suppose, is that the Rethuglican insanity is getting more insane. They’re not even trying to be coherent anymore. The bad news is that we can’t un-elect all the teabag nutjobs, and they’ll continue their assault on women and the economy until next election. And the odds are good that they’ll get at least a few of their draconian bills passed.
It’s a scary time to be an American. And by American, I mean someone who’s NOT one of the 400 people with half the wealth in America.
