The Republicans have a stranglehold on the House, might take over the Senate and the only thing standing between them and our social security benefits is Barack Obama.
Cue the panicked screaming.
What’s even scarier is there are Fox News watchers who are so soaked in lies and delusion that they will have absolutely no idea what hit them until it’s too late. A lot of very bad things could happen in two years. On the other hand, maybe the Republicans have to have free reign so people can see what they’re really all about. Telling people not to watch Fox doesn’t seem to be working. It just might take some very, very tough love and a heavy dose of betrayal before they get it. Of course, this might be the last time many people have an easy time voting. Once they’re in power, it will be more difficult to dislodge them. All bets are off for voting in 2016, especially for women. Because if I were the Republican party, I’d busily get behind initiatives to make it much harder for women and poor people to vote. I mean, harder than it is now. Much harder.
The rest of us should assume the brace position.
