Unhappy Anniversary: 1968-2008

There are a few reasons 2008 will be 1968 in the U.S. Notably, the Democratic Party has fallen apart and will nominate an unelectable candidate in a fixed convention. It won't be necessary for cops to remove their badges and beat up delegates this time.

It's likely that an unpopular war will have its worst year yet.

Let's hope that the worldwide events of 2008 don't match 1968, though. Let's review, in roughly chronologic order, how much fun that year brought us:1968 blamThere were some good things that year too, but I don't think they make up for the body count and the loss of freedom and the defeat of idealism worldwide. Let's hope we get a better 2008.
