Frankly people, you just don't get it

There's an interesting juxtaposition of two Times stories today: Republicans are deeply divided over which fat cats will get the latest round of tax breaks and the so-called average Bush voter explaining why some of them are losing faith in their guy.

You really have to marvel at how people have consistently voted against their economic interests by electing Bush and his cronies in the ultimate do-nothing Congress. It shows once again the power of the cultural issues that the GOP has used to divide and conquer.

These opinion pieces about health care and the yawning disparities between rich and poor show how deep the disconnect between the Theocons and the rest of the nation have become.

If you are looking for answers and how to combat that, I'm not sure I have them. And if I did, I sure would not subject myself to the harsh world of GOP personal attacks. That's why I'm just sitting here opining as an Outraged Liberal!
