Subject: election observations
by yours truly in BittersBurgh, Frumpagheny County, Gunsylvania
Jon Stewart hasn't made me laugh since before
the writers' strike, and Stephen hasn't made me laugh
in a few weeks, but BartCop #139 gave
me a bunch of belly laughs. The Chris the Screamer stuff was
my favorite. You can really see right into
that guy's head -- I can just see him going for Senator Obama's
ass to test it for freshness. It's time
for Hardball -- cross your legs, Barak!
Sorry for Pittsburgh's role in keeping this bloody
and draining Civil War going, but Senator Clinton really
connected with people across Pennsylvania, a
win that may prove to be an indicator of things to come.
For many people, this election is not about a
landmark historic precedent, or race and gender -- they don't
have the luxury of thinking in those lofty terms,
like the people who write that stuff. It doesn't get covered
on tv, but her events are not rallies as much
as policy talks. Pragmatic talk about economic issues, plus
proving herself to be an absolutely tireless
worker who wants to win, has been the key, in my opinion.
Obama can't close the deal with working people
-- suggesting white working folk in Pennsylvania were
too mean and superstitious to vote intelligently
didn't help. Obamaniacs reacting to Senator Clinton's
pocketbook Pennsylvania win by calling us sorry
white trash and bitter middle-aged frumps will not pave
the way for future primary Obama victories either.
Will they figure that out and have the good sense
to care, or is being Pure more important?
Note the high margin of victory in the Pittsburgh
AND Philly suburbs, where Hillary sent in her heaviest
artillery, Bill. All the media idiots
yabber about how he is destroying her campaign, etc, when the opposite
is true, as usual. If their heads weren't
in the dark, 3 feet up their asses, they would see that loyalty to Bill
a factor in the election. He is still very popular,
and is now a reminder of a by-gone era of peace and
prosperity, in addition to being a charmer who
knows a lot more than Obama about how to come courting.
Holy Mary Mother of God! The Catholic vote is
significant for a Democrat win in November. In 2004,
enough of them voted largely on the issue of
abortion, fooled by Republican false promises to eradicate it,
to make it easy for Monkey Boy to beat Kerry.
Also, enough of them sided with Holy Rick Santorum (R-Too-Crazy-To-Represent-Pennsylvania-Anymore)
over the Pope on the issue of the Iraq War for
Republican victory, but that was before it was
obvious to everyone that it was a catastrophe. Add the
frightening economic downturn of 2008 here in
Appalachia and "Bohunkistan", and Catholics will have
more than one thing on their worried minds this
November. Should Obama become the nominee, however,
he needs to ratchet up the "national defence"
stuff, or he will be vulnerable to McCain's BS claim to be the
better future Commander in Chief, which people
here ARE stupid enough to fall for in some numbers.
My take: the scariest part of the Civil War is
that the Clintons are still in the race not because of ego,
but because they KNOW this early on that Obama
has got a glass chin and can't win in the Fall, and they
are not going to surrender the Presidency to
I anticipate the next primaries will be strong
wins for Clinton, and then I think its time for Bart's Compromise.
Clinton/Obama is a winning ticket for 2008, and
I think its a ticket that will hold on to the Presidency when
the popcorn hits the fan big time next year.
Did you watch Judas Stephanopoulos Saturday?
The "Republican strategist" Matthew Dowd said that Dems
are voting for Obama because he represents the
21st century. Huh? So how can they win with McCain?
I guess Republicans will be voting for McCain
because he represents the 11th century (1097=First Crusade).
Take care, my man. I worry about you.
