The beaver of Friday
They say the republicans are taking the lead in the polls. I'm beginning to think that it's a ploy to get democrats off their butts to vote. Looking at the teabaggers blather on about stuff they know nothing about it only makes for a good circus show. We've heard terms like communist, socialist, and fascist thrown around. Would the moderates really hook themselves to an extremist ideology? Some may but I give credit to the voters for being just a bit smarter. Some like my own father a dyed in the wool republican might have been duped that is until the company he worked for for nearly 40 years kicked him to the curb then it dawned on him that what he believed in for so many years wasn't in his own best interest.
Sadly nothing will change until there is campaign finance reform. They tried just yesterday to get a little transparency. A bill to require disclosure in political ads was just voted down. So please note at the bottom of ads who is paying for them because you'll never find out just who the Star Spangled Patriots for Peace and Freedom and the American Way really are even if you go to their website but you can sure bet it's tied to some lobby group.
I'm waiting for Tina Fey to add Christine O'Donnell to her repertoire. That will make for good circus.
