With the ascendency of Win-at-any-cost political ideology on the right, politics has become about bashing the other team and win any way that you can. Does the truth matter, no? Does history mean anything, nope. What about actual value to the public? Nada. These Neocons are quite postmodern.
Consider the massive mistakes that the Bush regime and neo-conservatives throughout the misadministration have made in the past few years. My God! Even those of us who were so deeply concerned about the declining state of political and civic culture that this and countless other blogs were started, could not have dreamed that we would be talking about so many problems, crimes, and just flat out devastating mistakes.
Well, friends things have changed FOREVER. Neoconservative efforts have reshaped American culture in its image. Who would have thought that ditto-heads were only the beginning? That the old right (moral majority, Patrick Buchanon, Eagle Forum, and more) would be replaced by an unparalleled expansion of right-wing extremism and run away corporate America which would wreck everything and will only continue to do so.
As Gordon Gekko said: "The point is ladies and gentlemen that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of it's forms - greed for life, for money, knowledge - has marked the upward surge of mankind and greed - you mark my words - will not only save Teldar Paper but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you. "
One has to wonder what is coming next since the greedy-in-all-repsects neo-conservative machine which now that they have so much of what they wanted is trying to dispense of Bush -- He is really a liberal and we warned you all along... or... we have all been lied to... or whatever crap truth the machine is peddling. So much for loyalty among the right-wing, eh?
Because -- and of this make no mistake -- the neoconservatives are far from done, they will continue to push against the hated "liberal agenda" and even when they are winning they never, ever give the impression that they are in the driver's seat as the car goes over the cliff. It is always the hated liberals who are responsible.
The Neocons are far from done, why would they stop? Every major effort in the past eight years has been rewarded.
Remember the Neocons are greedy as locusts. They will never stop.
