From tonight’s The Rachel Maddow Show… Wayne Slater, senior political writer for the Dallas Morning News, talks with Rachel about why the indictment of Texas governor Rick Perry is a bigger deal than many realize and is not a partisan attack and is about coercion, not vetoes.

Here’s our friend Rachel Maddow at what just may be her best. She’s talking about the lengths to which Republicans will go to hurt the Obama administration, including destroying the economy and opposing their own policies.

It’s a bit long, coming in at about 16 minutes, but it’s well worth your time — especially if you want to understand a lot of the crap you’re going to seeing and hearing from our Republicans in the coming 16 months or so leading up to the 2012 elections.

Our friend Rachel gets it. Do you?

I do not know how else to say this so I am just going to say it. If your household income is less than $500,000 per year and you are voting for Republicans, you are an idiot. There is no other way to put it. Consistently and stubbornly voting against your own best interest makes you an idiot. Sorry.

If you are still holding on to the belief that anything will be accomplished during the 112th Congress, please take a few minutes to watch this clip from last night’s The Rachel Maddow Show

Note to Rachel: The laugh track we could have done without. Nothing you said or presented in this clip was particularly funny. Just saying.

(P.S. I apologize for posting John Boehner’s face twice in a row. Get used to it. You’re going to be seeing it quite a bit in the next two years. Sorry.)

The Republican narrative

The following video is must-watch for anyone in the United States who has any interest whatsoever in the midterm elections scheduled for two weeks from now. That should be everybody in the United States. It is from MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, broadcast last evening, October 18, 2010. Rachel explains in no uncertain terms how the media has adopted the Republican narrative for these midterms and emphasizes again how important the outcome of these elections is to each and every one of us.

If you are of (or close to) voting age and a citizen of the United States of America, you need to be interested in and involved in these elections. If you are not, shame on you. It really is that simple and that important.
