What will happen if the Democrats don't win

Sometimes I worry for the more unhinged members of the nutroots. They live in a paranoid fantasy world and this allows them to construct all sorts of doom and gloom scenarios. A Democratic win might actually bring them out of this stupor and consider the possibility that the system is not corrupt. That would be a good thing for all Americans. So can you imagine the wailing and nashing of teeth that will follow if the Democrats fail to take the House. Imagine no more.

We all know the neocons won't cede power easily. They have to be aware that if the tide of Congress turns, Bush's last two years will be mired in gridlock and perhaps even be punctuated by several embarrassing congressional investigations. Of course, Cheney did say last week that everything in Iraq is hunky dory, which leads one to believe that after James Baker's devastating report and the escalating mass destruction of the war, Dickey-boy has simply lost it. But whether it is hubris, loony tunes, or both, the White House's freakish calm about the elections makes me as nervous as the hell we seem to be headed for. Therefore we should all be on alert. If for whatever reason we don't win back Congress in November the only real answer will be to take to the streets. [Emphasis added.]


Thousands of aging hipsters rioting. Starbucks torched. Prius' set ablaze. Rythmic chatting until the wee hours of the morning when they have to go to work. It's going to be ugly in the city. I am going to stock up of bottled water and soup.

Update:

Oh no. It can't be. I am filling sandbags as I type.
