A tip of the hat to Lew Rockwell for this insightful recap of yesterdays exciting dem convention opener.
Obama never had a chance against the Republican swiftboaters, who could – speaking within the paradigm – turn a war hero into a traitor, and a draft dodger into a war hero. This time it’s Obama the Muslim, etc. And, once again, the Dems are participants in their own demise.
Last night at their convention, Pelosi gave one of her victimology speeches about ceilings: glass, marble, etc. and how she’s a role model for the entire female sex, provided they want to be crooked, pro-war, power-mad, get-rich-through-politics rip-off artists. Jim Leach, a Republican nobody, gave the most boring talk in human history about supporting Obama, I think. Teddy Kennedy promised the weeping NEA masses that he would not die until he had imposed even more socialism on the American people. This was after a moving film of him in his ocean-going, Koch-size yacht, and how being close to the sea makes him love welfare recipients, or something like that. Jimmy Carter, who looked great, was not allowed to speak for fear he might mention the Middle East. Michelle Obama, who also looked great, explained that she had children, parents, and a husband, not to mention a brother. Then there were the manifold shots of Senator Max Headroom. Biden doesn’t look human any more. Maybe it’s one too many face lifts, hair transplants, tooth implants, chin jobs, nose jobs, neck jobs, tanning-booth sessions, or eye jobs (speaking of the scary Pelosi). As usual, the Republicans don’t deserve to win, but the Democrats do deserve to lose.
Not one word about the evil of McCain, Cheney, or Bush, the police state, the depresssion, or the wars, And the next two nights are all Clinton, the bitter killer-couple who still can’t believe they lost to the better man.
