Random "town-hall" type on TV:
"Obama is a radical communist who's going to take over and turn us into communists like Hitler did in Germany."

Gawd. There are no words.

Col linked to this funny bit in the Daily Kos about all these supposed libertarians wandering around lately. In the comments, I expressed the opinion that we ought to fence off part of Nevada, say, and stick them all out there with no government services and see how they like it.

I am tired of idiots. I've been very quiet for the last month mostly because I am trying to avoid the healthcare rant I want to write - not because you guys wouldn't be interested, I'm sure, but because I am incapable of being rational about it. Now there's news that there are people in Texas who actually want to try to secede. I don't know why I'm surprised. Actually I guess I'm not surprised at all that they exist; I am just pissed off at their insistence on making idiots out of themselves in public. (Although admittedly, I ought not be surprised at that, either, especially with the abundance of evidence in the past month of people's willingness to do so.) I don't think this would have a chance in hell of passing even if it did somehow get on the ballot - among other things, wouldn't it be illegal? - but I've heard some people in other states who ought to know better act like all Texans feel like this and I'm tired of being tarred with that brush. Texas is only barely a Republican state any more, although I know it's hard to believe. Like a lot of places, it's divided sharply down the urban-vs-rural divide, but urban is winning, increasingly so. And I think maybe in Texas the urban-vs-rural divide is even sharper than in other states. There are a lot of people out there on the prairie and in the small towns who may not be far from me physically, but otherwise, they might as well be on another planet.
