Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain

The Republican clown car moves on and on, commanding the attention of the American media and the American public-- Newt, Mitt, Rick Santorum and the ever present Ron Paul are in the arena jousting at the moment.  Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, and Jon Huntsman have already gotten the thumbs down.

Meanwhile, out in the real world, Europe is foundering and the financial future of the Euro is in danger, not to mention the future of the European Union itself.  In the Middle East,  the Arab Spring has turned to a rather violent winter with Syria becoming a slaughterhouse and Iran  rattling a big nuclear sabre , 
Meanwhile the US and EU are  trying to pursuede the world to boycott Iranian oil. ( Good luck folks) Russia is sitting this dance out, but seems ready to leap into the fray at a moment's notice to defend its friend, Iran. 

Has anybody in America noticed the  war drums beating in the background?  Probably not, because we are too busy watching the GOP in action on the campaign trail like it was some kind of sporting event or reality TV.  The 1% are still very firmly in control.

Guess what-- it doesn't matter who wins the Republican nomination  because the fix is in.  The average American is being entertained and getting screwed and if we Americans don't wake up we are going to deserve everything  we get.  But pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.  Just sit back and enjoy the show.

I agree that it won't matter who the GOP nominee is. I don't feel that Gingrich, Romney, Santorum, or Paul have the best interest of Americans at heart.
