Call to march on Washington

Our Senator Chuck Grassley gets a mention Ranting: Irrational accusations
At a town hall assembly led by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, an angry participant urged "patriots" to grab their guns and head to Washington.
I missed that rally. I never realized the monotone, nasal flatulence coming from Chuck would inspire such passion.

This editorial quoting a New Yorker article about how the Republican party is full of right-wing, conspiratorial, whacked-out, tea-party protesters who is led by Glenn Beck and Rush because
"The party simply didn't have any other engine. ...The Republican Party is married to these people because Republican identification is now so low."
Really? The party that gave us Bush who couldn't reign in his own spending, forced more governmental control of public schools, expanded Medicare/Medicaid beyond the original scope, supposedly is being controlled by radical fringe previously described? That Republican party?
President Obama is somewhat like historic Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt...
I thought Obama likened himself as a modern-day Lincoln.

Oh and don't forget, we're the bitter-clingers in America.
Despite his attackers, Roosevelt transformed America, bringing Social Security and other people-helping programs that improved life for future generations. We hope Obama likewise overcomes his bitter accusers and gives America universal health care and other major advances.
And he will produce sunshine, lollipops, rainbows, and chocolate rivers forever and ever.
