Once again the Demowienies are in the process of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Why am I not surprised? So much for that much lauded theory from the usual Democratic pundits who haven't rubbed elbows with the common man in years. You know the theory that said that Obama had a better chance of beating McCain than Hillary would. This election cycle has been rigged since day one and anyone who thinks that things are going to change in January needs to share their psychedelics with the rest of society.
An untried, unproven (did you know he's black?) political upstart against a professional politician whose main claim to fame was to be shot down in Vietnam and held as a POW; who left his first wife while she was recovering from a car accident for his current and much richer wife; who can barely tell the difference between Iraq and Iran, much less Shia or Sunni; was closely related to the Keating scandal and hasn't accomplished much since then except to keep running for office and now he's ahead in the polls.
And the best part? The Republicans haven't even brought out the big guns yet. One of Hillary's greatest strengths (yes, she had some to go along with her baggage), besides her experience and her previously shown ability to work well with others, would have been that they couldn't dig up any more dirt on her than has already been thrown. Not so for the anointed one, have you seen the story about the brother? This is just the beginning. I hope Hillary takes the Gray Davis approach and decides to live a life of happiness away from all the lies and selling of souls for votes. She and Bill will be able to laugh sadly at the mess that people who supposedly knew better have created and left the American people to drown in.
As goes California, so goes the nation. Down hill and into the sewer ditch. Californians were so sure that getting rid of Gray Davis and installing Schwarzenegger would make things better for the state. Several years later and now look at where we are. No budget, deeply in debt and no way out except to either hurt the people who have nothing more to give or give to the people who keep finding things to take. You remember the takers from when we all used to go to grade school together before they destroyed one of the best educational systems in the country. They had all the best toys, hung around in cliques that the average (read poor) person couldn't get into and made sure they were the only ones on the cheerleading squads and running for school offices. The original '09ers. Obviously they haven't changed one bit.
What has changed is that the American people still believe in royalty and have decided to appoint those with money as the sole arbiters of what is best for the common man. That would be the other 99% of America, soon to be known as the poor and downtrodden. Or in the language of the Dark Ages, serfs.
