Looney Tunes

Facts and Deductions:

1. American elections can be bought, courtesy Supreme Court.

2. Obama hopes to have $1B for the 2012 election

3. The Koch brothers alone can call that bet and raise.

4. People like the Kochs determine the Republican presidential candidate.  They won't repeat the mistake they made in 2008. They will determine that Ryan is on the 2012 ticket. They will pair him with someone else who is electable.

5. Republican strategist know how to devise an electoral strategy.  As usual, it will manipulate evangelicals, second amendmenticals, anti-abortionists, anti-semitics, xenophobes, homophobes, and (it's so fundamental that I almost forgot) racists.  New this time: muslimophobes and young people -- by painting baby boomers as parasites.

Naturally, your every whim will be catered to if you live in a small state, courtesy your low-hanging senate seats.

I almost forgot JOBS.   Remember last time?  They will swear on a stack of bibles that they will focus like a laser on jobs.

6. If they win in 2012, they will make sure that the next election is more efficient.  Things will happen that make you, dear citizen, worry that your electronic vote isn't secret. You will become afraid that if you don't vote for them there will be consequences at your job, or with your taxes, or that your kids won't get into that private school.  You will find yourself gerrymandered or driven into a district that is 100% democratic.

7. And when Porky Pig's deeply held values drive him belatedly to a patriotic act, he will be made into sausage by the intelligence, military, security, police, judicial and penitentiary apparatus of Amerika.

8. Tha.. tha.. tha.. tha.. that's fascism, folks!!
