Driftglass Fucking Nails It


Driftglass had quite a bit to say yesterday about right-wing screeching over telecom immunity for felonious and unconstitutional spying on American citizens. As usual, he nails the motherfucker, and his entire post is well worth a read. I want to comment, however, on one of his remarks in particular:

The remnants on the leadership caste of the Party of God are either outright brownshirts or conscienceless toadies, and the “Fox Rocks!” 27%-ers that will follow them cheerfully into the slaughterhouse are frankly too stupid to comprehend or appreciate what is at stake and what they have already cost us.

Driftglass tends towards the “glass half empty” end of the “How fucking fucked are we, anyway?” spectrum. Driftglass only sees the dark side of the remaining dead-end 27% koolaid besotted wastrels still listening to the likes of despicable scumbucket shitheel douchehound Boehner. The only ones left in the back of the extreme right-wing shitwagon are these 27%ers. And they will only give up their wackaloon fevered fantasties through attrition.

PhysioProf is more of a “glass half full” kind of guy: The non-delusional cadre of greedy, selfish, arrogant right-wingers who only drank the koolaid because they wanted tax handouts, perceived safety, and a sense of superiority over the poor, the brown, and the non-Christian aren’t swallowing any more. These people are quietly ceasing to propagate batshit crazy garbage like Boehner’s depraved comments, pretend like they bear no responsibility at all for the horrors we have been through–and surely will continue to experience for quite some time–as a direct consequence of their greed, stupidity, and moral perfidy, and try to blend back in to respectable society.

Despite the practical benefits of this “awakening” of so-called “moderate” conservatives, I blame them far more for our current shitpile than the real wackos. The non-crazy former “conservative” supporters are greedy, selfish, hypocritical pigs who–while goaded by the conservative movement into embracing their nasty piggish impulses–could have chosen otherwise.

They knowingly rode the coattails of the truly demented 27%ers into a land of insanity, with only the hope of immediate satiation at the piggy trough in mind, and willfully closed their eyes to the long-term corollaries. The 27%ers themselves, however, are just outright crazy nutjob motherfuckers who can no more be blamed for following the authoritarian leaders of the conservative movement than a komodo dragon can be blamed for gnawing on a rotten ungulate carcass.

    It’s these go with the flow motherfuckers who are the first ones to say they didn’t vote for him either, pig fuckers.
    Now that the shit is flowing the other way we need to remember these assholes and mark them to keep an eye on.
    I have no respect for shitheels like that, if you have yer principles. stand up for ‘em, mine sure as fuck aren’t up for grabs to whoever happens to be the one running the show at any given moment.
    That’s Bullshit and ya get what ya deserve in the end because people remember that shit. I do believe the word I’m looking for is collaborator, as in criminal activity, which defines the Bush administration from front to back.

    I wonder how much of the eye-opening has to do with the rising prices of essential items and that the middle-class is feeling the pain of the poor quite readily?

    How long will it take before the economic downturn forces a ‘New New Deal’ and a truly progressive Congress?
