Quote of the day--the only Obama endorsement you need edition

>> Monday, August 20, 2012

Listen, when I voted for him, I knew I was voting for a moderate. His politics are not my politics, but he's a hell of a lot closer to me than any of the others, so I'm vehemently behind him. I desperately want him to win. Has he disappointed me? Of course he's disappointed me. Do I think he's rather inept politically? Yes. I think he could've out-maneuvered those right-wingers. But he had this knighted notion that he could somehow bring everyone together, and he didn’t know that he was dealing with insane people. I think of the right-wing Republicans as jihadists; they’re as crazy as those people. They want to destroy the country that we want to save. And you know they're not doing it with machine guns and bombs, but they're doing it by electing insane people to enact insane legislation that is going to do as much damage to us as bombs would in the long run. So that's my position. I'm for Obama, I wish he were different, but I know that, under the circumstances, he can't be different. Anybody farther to the left would never have a chance of winning.
- Paul Auster, as quoted by David Daley;
"Paul Auster: 'I think of the right-wing Republicans as jihadists', Salon, August 19th, 2012.


Quoted for truth. I don't know Auster's work, but it's an interesting interview, and that comment is perhaps even more to the point than Joe Biden's not-completely-inaccurate comment about Republicans putting people back in chains. The GOP's right wing wants to return the United States to the Gilded Age; it's as if they don't realize that the Age ended with the country almost tearing itself to pieces all over again. And there are more than a few supporters of the GOP's right wing who want to return the country to 1860, a year before the country did in fact tear itself to pieces over a four-year period.

If that's not destroying the country, gods only know what is.

I should probably delete your spam, but I'm afraid of getting turned into a newt. And they have rough lives, what with all the alimony and late-night comedians putting on fat suits and mop wigs to do imitations.

So will Prophet Harry cast a spell to bring Republican's love for America back?
