Fear and Loathing in the Right Wing

Jay Bookman of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution makes a good point in his Oct. 18 blog entry: the GOP is indeed terrified of American voters.

The Republican Party thrives on fear. They want you afraid of Muslims and afraid of Arabs, afraid of immigrants and even Spanish-speaking Americans. They want you afraid of gays, afraid of the homeless, afraid of taxes, afraid of liberals, afraid of voter fraud. and afraid of Democrats. They especially want you afraid of Barack Obama.

But if there's one thing they're afraid of, it's American voters. Why else have they disenfranchised millions of legitimate voters? They know that if the people's will is expressed in 16 days, their reign of terror is over. Our national nightmare is, after all, their most cherished dream: permanent one-party rule.

So... what can I say? Piss off a Republican - vote!
