not exactly Pinochet, but you know what I mean

an uncomfortably accurate post from my blog dated TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010:

“not exactly Pinochet, but you know what I mean

The photographs of Chileans celebrating in the streets after Allende was elected remind me a little of the pictures of people here, after Obama’s election night.  For a moment, goodness triumphed.  And then it changed again. And then it was worse, more stupid and more cruel, than anyone could have imagined.”

>not exactly Pinochet, but you know what I mean

I inserted this Glenn Beck photo at the time– never imagining in my wildest dreams that one day soon Beck would seem benign.
