Day of the Wookie.

As if the CPAC convention wasn't proof enough that November '10 is shaping up to be the Night Of The Long Bowcasters, now we have this:
Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government's become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens.
If not even CNN could slant their question enough to get a vote of confidence for

What boggles my mind is that they couldn't even slant it to get away from the .gov being an immediate threat. Not a "potential" threat, or even a "growing" threat, but an immediate threat.

Never mind a vote of confidence, they couldn't get away from a vote of no confidence. Wow.

Seems like I read a book once about a fellow that ran around the US randomly killing people who was part of a government agency that was large enough he could hide what he was doing in the bugdet.

Seems the author was Cooney? been a long time ago, but it was scary then. More so now.

Wow. One wonders if the People are finally waking the f%#k up...

Encouraging on so many levels, one wonders what prompted CNN to actually post such results instead of sending them immediately into the shredder.
Could there also be some dim hope that the Collaborationist News Network itself may actually have some Americans working there again?

President Obama said today that the only reason the people of America haven't yet voted him Supreme Ruler of the Universe is that he hasn't adequately explained to them the benefits of doing so.
"Once I have taken total control of all aspects of American life and the common people, we're not talking about the CEO's here, the common people see how much better their lives are, they will thank me for what I have done."
Senate Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a joint statement saying that a triumvirate of them and President Obama satisfied the Constitutional requirements for legislative and executive branches of government. Pelosi also hinted that the legislature had the authority to override any and all Supreme court decisions.
More on this story as it develops if it is allowed by FCC regulations requiring equal time for opposing views.

Those same fifty-six percent who answered in the affirmative can also collect their clueless award for being so uninformed as to be rendered brain dead.

This shit has been going on since before most of this blog's readerships' grand-parents were born.

Yeah, let's not let anybody else into the clubhouse!

It's the sense given from the article that this is somehow a newly sprung phenomenon that's off-putting.

We can add as many as you'd like, and I think I'd include upwards of close to 3.0E8.

What are your figgers?

The main thing that worries me here is the proven Short Attention Sp... Hey, let's go ride our bikes! of the American voter.

Also, how many of them are just disgruntled for economic reasons?

Still, I'll take allies where I can find 'em. We can worry about who digs after we've plugged Lee Van Cleef. ;)

Anon 11:52,
You ALMOST got it right. Instead of "people" in the speech, substitute "folks". That will be closer in flavor to the way I've heard Obeyme speak.

And everytime he says "folks", I feel as if I should be bowing and saying "Yassah Massa."

It's not the diggin' so much as it is the rope. I'm not sure I can balance that long.

Night of the Wookie involves Firefly re-runs, pizza and the smell of incense.

A majority of the country agrees with the Framers? Noooooo.

*kicks rocks* But I got all dressed up in my revolutionary garb and you know how hard it is to find XXXL salad pants--III. You mean I have to go into the office on Monday.
