Unfortunately for the rest of us too. Because it means when the Democrats act like the corporate shills that they are more Tea Partiers and Christofascists get elected. And, because as complete whackjobs they pose less of a threat to the Dems the Dems see less reason to not act like complete corporate wanks.
I mean, the unhinging of the conservatives in the 90s was hilarious, in a sort of "fail Brownshirt" kind of way, but then those guys took power, and started wars, torture, imprisonment without trial and assassination, all of which has now been institutionalized. So, you know...what're they gonna do when the Dems eventually get voted out for being corporate shills, and they hold the reins of power again?
