Corporations And Republicans Are Indeed Evil, Anti-American, And Anti-Democratic. Yup, They Are.

Check out this piece over at Talking Points Memo. It gives good insight into how the Republicans and their corporate friends are tearing the country down by corrupting the political and legal processes at the foundations of democracy.

Some good points made in the comments too.

  1. That’s a truly shameless effort by the corporate climate change deniers.

    Thanks for the link to Talking Points. This post introduced me the concept of an “astroturf” campaign, which I’d never heard of before, but which seems to fit so many “campaigns”.

  2. Good piece at TPM. They’re a better news source than most newspapers. That’s no surprise though, Stewart and Colbert are better news sources than most TV “news” shows too.

    Has anyone discovered a depth to which corporations won’t lower themselves to protect their interests? Does any such depth exist?

    • It’s rumored that such a depth was found in the Challenger Deep of the Marianas Trench, but when researchers sent a probe down there all they found was a torn piece of memo about paying the Bush family some protection money.

    • I understand Peter Watts’s excellent (and freely downloadable at rifters.com) Rifters trilogy arose from a failed attempt to imagine such a thing.
