In VF's latest issue, which has some nice Olympic portraits, by the way...http://www.vanityfair.com/magazine/photos/2016/06/2016-olympics-portfolio
...there's one of those snippet pieces comparing 1968 to today wherein under the theme category of "what are we protesting" the writer lists the Vietnam War then, compared to Racism, Sexism and Lack of Diversity today.
So then in the "How does the Nation react?" category, he lists the 1968 reaction to be "the silent majority" (which was the rise of the religious right against women's rights, that bitch Anita calling us pedophiles, etc..) vs 2016's "birth of the angry, anti-political correctness voter" (which is the bigotry of Trump & Co.) which is kind of an interesting observation that though I don't know if it will hold out to be true it certainly rings true now.
It's weird to watch the GOP
self destruct morph
become more of the same, almost like watching an enemy die internally of disease when you'd have rather had it eventually see the light and come on over to party. That for all the stepping over to the right that the Republicans did towards the edge of that cliff, that even while the Democrats wrongly sidestepped right to continue square dancing with them, that wasn't enough for them. These bastard GOPers wanted more. They wanted the entire dance floor all to themselves. Well, they got it. Only from here it comes at ya at 32 feet per second squared.
I hear they've traded in their elephunt...
which is a shame because at least he could fly
