Not to govern, but to rule...

A number of articles have come out recently about the possibility of America falling into one-party autocratic rule. The Washington Post and Mother Jones magazine recently profiled uber-nut Grover Norquist and how he aligned big money, big religion and big sky people to push his goal of government for the well-off. The New Republic, when not confusing itself for Neoconservative Weekly, is confusing itself for The Nation.

The best summary of this fear is published in the next issue of American Prospect (the lovely issue with an giant elephant about to ravish Lady Liberty). This could look as fun as Mexico through much of the 20th century.
