1. I am suffering from Republican fatigue

The endless lies and poisonous personal attacks feel like an endless avalanche of toxicity, and it is hard to maintain the energy to hold it at bay. I am becoming emotionally deadened by it, and it is making me want to retreat from the whole process.

2. That's what they are hoping for and why they push the "both parties are the same" meme so hard.

Keep the faith, we will prevail.

6. I'm thinking of

Matt Stoller, Yves Smith, etc

they claim to be lefties but spend a lot of time convincing readers that there's no difference between the parties and spreading a lot of hatred of Obama.

I've pointed out it matters if one is a woman or minority and that there is the supreme court to consider but just get the most hateful bull hurled back at me.

They support OWS but don't want unions or democrats influencing it. I dunno.....

Seems like it plays into the republicans hands doesn't it?

5. The Repukes have been campaigning since Jan, 2009!

Four years of campaigning is far, far too much.
