americans have been lead to believe that they voted the neocons and many, many rethugs out of office over the last 2 election cycles. but watching and reading the 'news' sources since november, space aliens would be hard pressed to know we had. whether it be the cable and network talking heads or the pages of the 'respected newspapers and magazines' it seems that the right still had the most air time. guess the corporate ceos didn't get the memo that the other party won.
gingrich- wants to run in 2012, and indeed, these days he is sounding as crazy as ever, so he may have a shot
santorum- shouldn't he be spending time with his quiverfull and not opining in a major newspaper?
"Santorum and his wife, Karen Garver Santorum, have six children: Elizabeth Anne (born 1991); Richard John ("Johnny"), Jr. (born 1993); Daniel James (born 1995); Sarah Maria (born 1998); Peter Kenneth (born 1999); and Patrick Francis (born 2001). In 1996, their son Gabriel Michael was born prematurely and lived for only two hours (a sonogram taken before Gabriel was born revealed that his posterior urethral valve was closed and that the prognosis for his survival was therefore poor). Karen Santorum wrote a book about the experience: Letters to Gabriel: The True Story of Gabriel Michael Santorum. In it, she writes that the couple brought the deceased infant home from the hospital and introduced the dead child to their living children as "your brother Gabriel" and slept with the body overnight before returning it to the hospital. The anecdote was also written about by Michael Sokolove in a 2005 New York Times Magazine story on Santorum. Karen is also the author of a book on etiquette for children."

while many bushies remain unemployed, the more well connected have gone to work for.... the corporate media propaganda machine. or universities.
little wonder that americans are puzzled- it led to a caller to c-span to come right out and ask:
CALLER: "I would like to know why, if you had a car, ma’am, and it broke down and you took it to your dealer and it kept breaking down, and breaking down. Wouldn’t you change dealers? Why do you keep bringing these neocons on? […] This failed! …And you keep on bringing on failed policy. […] I would like you to tell me why we are still using this car dealer who has failed America."
and that is a fine, fine question indeed.
