Repudiate the Right-Wing Conspiracy

A thing to be considered in light of George McGovern's over-restrained but otherwise excellent Op-ed in the Washington Post (!) calling for impeachment: when crimininals offend with impunity their practices are promoted, multiplied and emboldened. This is why the Bushites must be held accountable. The public must be fully acquainted with their crimes, and there should be as many vigorous prosecutions as possible, so as to get at the truth, deter such future offenses, and to ensure that the perpetrators are removed from power.

Innumerable people around the blogosphere still think Mussolini said: "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power."

This attribution is apparently apocryphal, but it's one of those mythic fictions that captures a deeper, timeless formal or psychological truth, like Oedipus or Naricissus or Genesis. It certainly reflects the chemistry, the Quaalude/Southern Comfort synergy of the Bushite/Corporate hybrid. It's instructive to remember the yuppie riot that closed down the Miami-Dade County recount in 2000. Here, provides a little program for the players. Where are these alleged "concerned Floridians" now, we might wonder? Safely ensconced in fat corporate sinecures, you can be sure. Even if the Democrats win in November, these assholes and tens of thousands just like them, will work diligently, unscrupulously, psychopathically to ensure that the Keloptocracy can once again be returned to ablsoute power and impunity.
