“What in the world has happened to the Democratic Party? Its passivity towards this awful takeover of our lives by a know-it-all government, as shown by the way Obama has governed by constantly going around Congress — appointing czars and one new layer of bureaucracy after another. And hardly a peep of protest from liberals. It’s like the movie of H.G. Wells’ “The Time Machine” — Democrats have turned into the Eloi; they’re like sheep. They hear a signal, and it’s like pre-programmed spin in their heads — they just trot like sheep in one direction. I am voting Green in protest against the systemic corruption of my party.” Camille Paglia
There’s a certain edge of manic madness in her voice when she speaks. It’s like being lectured by a machine gun. But though she’s a bit crazy, she’s generally honest. I wonder if she’s gotten the memo that a Green vote is really a vote for Obama as all third party votes are–or so I’m perpetually told.
