a wonderfully funny article:

During the past 25 years, there have been countless sentiments that respectable Democratic politicians were never, ever supposed to say out loud for fear of angering the all-powerful Republicans. It still isn’t wise for Obama to say them, but maybe the New Complacency will loosen other tongues within the political mainstream. Even if it doesn’t, it’s fun to think about what those utterances might be.

The article then goes on to list such things that we haven’t been able to say, but might finally have the freedom to, including:

-Health care is a service, not a business!

-Pot is no more dangerous than vodka. Legalize it!

-I don’t support the troops. I support some troops, depending on whether or not they’ve committed war crimes!

-No more wars without United Nations or at least NATO support!

It’s a really wonderful article to read, if you’re a Democrat, but also maybe if you’re not?
