Daily Kos: State of the Nation

"Darksyde" writes at Daily Kos: State of the Nation:

I feel our nation is under grave threat from a tiny cabal of neoconservatives freaks, that are off the chain, bug-fuck crazy. In just a few short years, these stooges have lost one war, are in the process of losing a second, even while clamoring to start a third. The tragic litany of foreign and domestic policy catastrophes engineered by these clowns handily exceeds the scope of this post. It is virtually impossible to overstate the magnitude of these blunders. They are unparalleled in modern American history.

These fringe radicals remain profoundly dangerous for three interlocking reasons: They’re breathtakingly incompetent, they’re arrogant to the brink of delusional, and they retain enormous influence over the most powerful military machine on the face of the planet. Now their fraud has been exposed, finally Republicans, Democrats, and Independents have begun to collectively realize the destruction these derelicts have brought down on all our ideological heads. But they're still in power, perhaps cooking up who knows what kind of new God-awful shit, even as they blame America for their past, stupendous cluster-fucks.

While the main thrust of his article is about something else entirely, the section above quite succinctly describes many of my worries for the future. Though you'll never hear me call neocons "radicals." I call them "reactionaries."
