When You Think You've Seen Everything

Future Candidate

I have never in my life seen a candidate pull a switch like Mr. Romney did around the time of the first debate. I remember reading the news and wondering what the heck was happening: were the right-wing Republicans in agreement with what seemed to me to be an abandonment of their positions.

And it just went right on like that into the election.

Apparently, we can now say anything at anytime and change the story at will... and the people will still vote for us. It is ominously memorious of democratic debacles in Athens about the times of the Pelopennesian War.

That is a very cool intro to Dictatorship 101 in another generation.
