Is This Just America Now?

I don't hate Hillary. I really, really don't. I don't like her, either. She's not qualified, has a mendacious streak a mile long and is as changing as the wind. But more than this, the Anchoress sums up nicely:

My Li’l Bro’s reaction makes me wonder: having lived through 8 years of BDS, do we really want to elect this woman and live through 8 years of HDS and continuous, unabated polarization or balkanization? I suggest we do not. Can the country stand it?
Can the country deal with this? It was such a relief to have Bill gone. For many in this country it will be a relief to have Bush gone.

I'm sick to death of the loathing all the way around. Would a Barack Obama or John Edwards or Mitt Romney inspire less loathing? I'm not so sure. The press will love anyone on the Left. They will demonize anyone and any idea from the right. That won't change.

The people who support both sides will continue to feel persecuted--the Left because they're perpetually narcissistic and suspicious. The Right will feel persecuted because, well, the press hates their ideas.

Average people get further disgruntled with our government. So there will be these polls saying that everyone is miserable, but life will be pretty good.

Is this just America now?
