Welcome to the New Theocracy

Looks like "A Handmaid's Tale" was more prophetic than we realized. Anecdotal evidence - a friend of mine who's very Republican was energized by the fear of gays going after his kids. This one person was multiplied by millions, with the fundamentalist churches seeming to go all out with their members to vote 'values.' It'll be interesting to see what the 'cheap labor right' gave to the fundamentalist churches - money or just promises.

As better writers have said today, we really have a fight on our hands. We just have to suck it up and ignore the right wing triumphalism we'll be hearing for the next few days. The lesson is that we have to be less optimistic, expect the worst and use the legal system to protect ourselves. Will the party become more liberal? We have to, because we've got to offer a better vision. Save your strength and money for 2006 and 2008. Mars, bitches!
