I feel like I’m taking crazy pills

At the moment I’m trying to figure out if I’m the only sane person left in America.

NPR is reporting this morning that business and lobbyists in Washington are supporting Democrats, President Obama, and speaking a new language of hope, change, blah, blah, blah. Which they note is a major change from 1994 when the GOP took over Congress and then business and lobbyists were all speaking the language of conservatism, free markets
and capitalism. And gosh darn it all, what a positive change it is when corporations are getting on board with communialism, socialism, and collectivism.

Let’s see. In 1994, businesses, lobbyists and corporations, wanting to purchase power through political donations were speaking the language of the party in power. In 2009, businesses lobbyists and corporations wanting to purchase power through political donations are speaking the language of the party in power.

And NPR is mystified. Maybe they’ll interview a Wiccan or what passesas a scientist these days to explain how global warming is involved.
