Around the blogroll and elsewhere - Special It's Over, Man edition

It was over long before the Wisconsin recall election, but given an ignorant electorate, a willfully blind, clueless, incompetent and equally corporatist Democratic Party, and billionaires coming out of the shadows now that they realize they can, in fact, buy themselves a U.S. government, it's impossible to believe any longer that the country I grew up in can survive. In many ways, the sociopath Willard Rmoney will be the perfect president to preside over the final stage of metamorphosis of the US into oligarchy. So let's take a short drive, shall we?

If you want to follow Netroots Nation at home, you can do it here.

At The Reaction, The Unwritten Rules of Political Conquest. Richard Barry is far more optimistic than I am; I think we will be beaten about the face and neck with Wisconsin right into November.

I don't know about you, but after reading this, I'd pay to watch our good friend Bustednuckles take on Jonah Goldberg in a no-holds-barred steel cage match.

Mochizuki at Fukushima Diary on a public service ad campaign that likens nuclear danger to an angry wife.
