The need for escapism is practically inescapable

Watch the World Cup, or watch the continued destruction of freedom, democracy and the world at the hands of our lawmakersbreakers? Watch Germany, Ecuador, England and Argentina romp into the second round, or watch the Senate and the Supreme Court stomp all over the Constitution and reality? It's awfully tempting to just sit back and watch the goals fly, instead of standing up as freedom dies. The Senate just voted, 98 to friggin' 1, to waste another $66 BILLION dollars on the destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the Roberts/Scalito court just decided that using evidence obtained in no-knock searches is just fine. And, on a 93-6 vote, the Senate rejected an amendment calling for a timetable for withdrawal of troops from Iraq. The 2500th was killed recently, BTW.

So...When's the next game?
