Yeah, kicking that evil narcotic, Dem-ocaine (better known by street names like "Deek", "DNC" and "Piece Dividend") is tough. Addicts have been known to lie, cheat, nay, even to turn on their fellow rads in desperate, doomed efforts to maintain fealty to our one-party-with-half-a-brain state, giving up their dignity, their political credibility, and, judging from the above quote, even the minimal ability to fact-check. But we must love the Eurosinner while hating the Eurocapitalist sin. I have faith that Brother Eric will throw off the Evil Spirit of Wall Street, step forwards into the 1084 x 768 virtual light, and knock on Heaven's door as a born-again Nader Raider. Hallelujah!
