History and hysterics

Crooks and Liars offers a useful reminder for the day (and a nice cartoon). Obama and the plan for the economy are taking a lot of flak.

But it is nothing that Roosevelt didn't have to deal with in his time.
With the endless drone of hate and vitriol spilling out of last weeks CPAC cabal, it's comforting (somewhat) to realize the amped-up hysteria and whining is just what history does, and does over and over. It's never civilized, it's never constructive and it is always based on fear and paranoia.


A nice reminder to all of us. And I do love some old cartoons from the day.
