The New Gilded States of America

This article from Alternet points out the "Eight Worst Governors in America."

Notice anything they have in common?

They're all Republicans.

I said a long time ago--September of last year--that "if Republicans win in November, they are going to destroy this country." I take no pride in being proved right. I am furious at the American voters--'scuse me, older, rich white voters--who stamped their feet and threw their temper tantrums against the Democrats (and especially against Obama, because he's, you know, not Our Kind of People), and voted this pack of sociopaths into office.

As the old saying goes: You get what you pay for.

And now the Republicans are going all out to gut Medicare and Medicaid and make the Bush tax cuts permanent.

Look, if this is the kind of country--'scuse me, oligarchy--you want, then go for it. If you're white, rich and male, it should suit you just fine.

But it certainly won't be the United States of America anymore.
