Speaking as a queer, transgendered SubGenius minister with admittedly skewed ideas and a filthy mouth, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the right-wing punditry, the Bush Administration, and the Republican Party leadership for becoming so shrill and unhinged that even I seem reasonable to most folks. While I have no desire to be "normal" per se, it's a lot easier to pass as "normal" in comparison to those who prefer to manufacture reality rather than deal with reality. You have guaranteed that America will increasingly depend on the crude oil of other countries, and will be forced to implement their policies over our own self-interest. You have disregarded sanity in favor of ideological rigidity, and have sacrificed your own independence of conscience in the name of political power. You have defamed the term "conservative" and turned it into a lie; you have transformed the word "liberal" into a cludgel. You have insulted the grieving and refused to support your words with actions.
You have reached the point where you cannot climb out of the hole you insist on digging for us all. You have undermined your own efforts to rule. You shall suffer the consequences, without a single vengeful hand, save your own. You've fucked up.
