People must be really pissed at Harry Reid if he's neck and neck with that dummy. I think Reid is damn close to a useful idiot, but I sure as hell wouldn't replace him with someone that wants to privatize Social Security. Which in light of the recession, I find hilarious.
You know what the right wing oligarchy REALLY hates about SS? That it's been successful and it does exactly what it's supposed to do. The teabaggers hate SS because their masters told them (after requiring that they genuflect in front of a statue of Ayn Rand) that this and all other "entitlements" is just giving money to brown people. However, giving trillions of dollars to the Military Industrial Complex is awesome. Because they kill brown people. See? It all makes sense.
The rate with which your average so-called conservative schlub will vote exactly against their own best interest is amazing. And they will do so with some twisted combination of christian circular logic (I love Jesus AND war!) mixed with a "free market" (no regulation!) they can't even begin to understand. Maybe they they think Jesus was really John Galt. An all-seeing model for capitalism (which in this country is really just corporatism) with a mix of meanness and miracle and cynicism.
