Dogs in 2012

It's looking like the Republican presidential candidates are "going to the dogs." Romney put his dog on the top of his car when going on vacation. Santorum discussed homosexuality and man on dog in the same paragraph. Gingrich is being called Romney's attack dog and his words are being called dog whistles for bigots. Paul aired a spot that portrayed him as the "big dog" when it comes to cutting the federal budget.

The Washington Post published a list of the positions on issues of the four top Republican candidates. This list shows that "conservative" means "conserving hierarchies," and there's plenty of hierarchy-conserving to be found among these four candidates. Their radical stands and fighting among themselves can only help accelerate the death struggle of hierarchies that is gathering steam in 2012.
