Can you hear her now?

A while back I posted a quot from Molly Ivins to the effect of "Next time I tell you someone from Texas should not be president, listen." Someone replied that we should ALWAYS listen to Molly Ivins.

OK, is everyone listening now?

"AUSTIN, Texas --- I'd like to make it clear to the people who run the Democratic Party that I will not support Hillary Clinton for president.

Enough. Enough triangulation, calculation and equivocation. Enough clever straddling, enough not offending anyone This is not a Dick Morris election. Sen. Clinton is apparently incapable of taking a clear stand on the war in Iraq, and that alone is enough to disqualify her. Her failure to speak out on Terri Schiavo, not to mention that gross pandering on flag-burning, are just contemptible little dodges. "

Unfortunately, that sort of contemptible little dodging seems to be exactly what gets someone the Democratic presidential nomination. And what makes it so easy for the NeoCon political war machine to rip them to shreds in the popular media (which they OWN, do not forget). The warlords must be clapping their hands in glee at the thought of running against Hillary. Alas, I have little hope that the Democratic political machinery will fail to nominate Senator Clinton or someone made of a similar mix of Wishy and Washy. Thus, I fear that in January, 2009 we will be watching the coronation of Die Kaiserin Kondolihza Rais, continuing the Reich for another eight years... at the end of which our government and society may be scarcely recognizable. I know I said that 2004 in the US was not Berlin in 1936, but if the NeoCons do get 4 more years, I suspect 2012 may well be.

Does that thought give you the screaming heebie jeebies? GOOD. Now lets find someone WITH A SPINE, not just a name and political connections, to run against the NeoNa... I mean NeoCons.
