Margaret Atwood already laid out how America could be a Christo-fascist nation in 1985. (The Handmaid's Tale is depressingly prescient. Scarier still, Margaret was extrapolating things that she saw in the early '80s, when we were starting to hear about the Moral Majority. That's why I may enjoy ridiculing Sarah Palin, but cannot write her off as a total buffoon.)

I never read the book but I know it is important - having lived in progressive/feminist Madison - it's in my reading list, (at communities101) - which includes Sinclair Lewis' "It Can't Happen Here". I need to read her book, but I simply have stopped reading big things.

I completely agree about Palin. But here's a thought: If she gets elected, maybe it's only a slippery slope we still have a chance to escape, since she is a known and ridiculed quantity. NOT saying it still couldn't get worse. But maybe some electrifying person completely out of the blue could be a bigger or at least more immediate threat. Funny how we are discussion HOW it's going to happen - not IF.

Stay tuned for LJ Friends Poll! I'll be posting soon, hopefully while drunk...

I worry that Palin is fronting for someone else. (Didn't someone from Alaska note that the First Dude was heavily involved with SP's job?)

And if you haven't done so already, add Philip Roth's [novel] The Plot Against America to your reading list. Great book!

really? - that's interesting, & possible.

she's screaming at party primaries rallies now - "like she's poppin another one out" (according to voice artist Jim Ward) - her support of John McCain in Arizona, which NEVER EVEN MENTIONED HIS TEABAGGER OPPONENT, and in Nevada, was actually a "front" for campaigning against Obama and democratic Senate leader Harry Reid - she using LOTS of GUN metaphors - "RELOAD": she got that from my LJ btw... and they sound spontaneous but they are choreographed (i can't believe i spelt that right!!!)

yes, he was heavilly involved - it isn't covered enough SERIOUSLY though - there's so much corruption that she gets away with - i can't remember what her husband was doing though cuz of my morning fog

ok - i'll add the book - thanks! - i need to remember also NIGHT by elie wiesel (sp?) and others i already forgot!
