Will I ever tire of citing George Orwell and his book, 1984? As I like to say, “It’s always 1984 somewhere!” Right now, it seems like it’s then right here in the USA. In his book, Orwell has the Party functionaries say that if The Party says the laws of arithmetic are suspended, then 2 + 2 = 5 and that’s it. Believe it or die!
George Romney told the RNC that we need “a party of big ideas, not Big Brother!” This from a minion of the party that has implemented domestic surveillance and suspension of habeus corpus.
The Republican flunkeys, one after another, tell us that we should elect their man because “Washington is broken!” Uh, yeh…YOU’VE been in charge for the last eight years. No wonder it’s a mess!
Funny also that the bedrock American political culture, even at the RNC, seems to be Democratic: references to profiles in courage (JFK), the glass ceiling being shattered by Hillary and Geraldine, calls to service (FDR)…etc.
