I looked back to what I posted a year ago on this Thanksgiving Eve and it turned out to be the above illustration. I’m posting it once again because it has more relevance now than it did twelve months ago. Could you imagine what a presidency under any one of these clowns would be like?
The middle class would be crucified and religious convictions would take precedence over science. The possibility of war in the Middle East would be greater than ever while women’s and gay rights would be under siege for the next four years. There would be no possibility of ever enacting the Dream Act and the Affordable Care Act would be slowly dismantled bit by excruciating bit.
A Republican win would have emboldened the Tea Party to carry on with their madness and strengthened the Koch brothers’ belief that if you pour enough money into it, even the White House can be bought.
Well, it didn’t happen. Common sense prevailed and you can rest assured that there will never be a President Bachmann, Perry, Santorum or Romney.
Yes, you have much to be thankful this holiday season.
May your Thanksgiving be happy and safe.
