We're just days away from the election and I have to admit, I'm a little scared. Not because it's Halloween, either. I know the progressive blogosphere has been working day and night to get out the vote, but have we gotten enough people to commit to vote to counter-balance these clearly low-information voters? Because argue between ourselves over the spinelessness and timidity of the majority, there is no way you can convince me that letting these chuckleheads with their irrational fears and abject stupidity get their candidates in office won't make the country much, much worse.
Speaking of irrational fears and abject stupidity, Fox News Sunday has cornered the market this Sunday. None other than the tea party queen Sarah Palin will grace the final mid-term election coverage push. And if that's not enough, you could always watch Michael Steele on State of the Union or John Cornyn on This Week or Peter King on Face the Nation. And since we're only days away from an election, curiously, we've had another terrorist attack thwarted. Again. Funny, that. Counterterrorism expert John Brennan will be on both This Week and Meet The Press to discuss the Yemeni explosive threats. Maybe we'll start examining cargo planes more thoroughly.
