In the esteemed blogging tradition of creating no original content of one's own, I read the following over at Who is IOZ, and thought, right on, man, right on:

...this whole "erstwhile conservative party" thing is a little questionable in my mind. To believe it, you have to conceptualize the Democrats as being historically something like the party of labor interests, the Republicans as being historically something like the party of business interests, and the crazy minority ID-politics types and the oogedy-boogedy faith-healing millenarian types being respectively the infestations that ruined them. Whereas in reality you have two corporate imperialist factions who differ on how best to keep hoi polloi in line, with the Democrats dangling the carrot of redistributive economic justice and the Republicans offering the illusion of social and moral harmony. Republicans never actually deliver a fag-free, abortionless, desexualized, post-Hollywood culture, and Democrats never do much for the downtrodden, but we live in an era of marketing, whatever, forever and ever, shantih, amen.

The donks let Liberman keep his chair, forcryingoutloud. It's all Coke versus Pepsi to me.

Dude, that was original, no worries.


I lifted that from another blog, too. I can't remember which one. I tried googling it but only rap and poker references come back.

What are the Republicans? The elephant in the room? Not for now.
