Thom Hartmann says Europe isn't the only place where heads of state are being replaced by banisters -it's happening right here in America as well.

2. Yes, heads of state are being replaced by banisters (bannisters)
I know you meant banksters, but maybe they replacements are as stiff as bannisters, cracked me up.

4. To think one elected official can eliminate an elected officials he disagrees with
and put a crony in his place without elections, without consultation with the people.

It's like the President declaring that Governors are not capable of running their states and then replacing them with a Goldman Sachs executive.

Or like declaring a national emergency and disbanding congress.
