Or how about Georgia where the fraud looks to have involved over 100,000 people. Yes, ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE. Registered to vote in Georgia, as well as FL or OH.
But hey, let's not talk about this stuff anymore, okay? That would be a real downer, a killjoy, a buzzkill, and just plain racist. So, let's just not mention it, shall we? It is only our democracy at stake, but no worries - we have our first biracial president, so all is right with our world!
Oh, no, instead the MSM will spend countless hours talking about what kind of puppy the Obama girls are going to get, and about Obama meeting with the Actual President (which I say that way since so many of the Obamaborg seem to think he is instantly president - does NO ONE take Civics classes anymore?), and his getting his national security briefings. How could I forget? His choosing his cabinet. Oh, yes - that is a fun one - and this is a little shout out to all of my female university teaching family - how about that Lawrence Summers as possible Treasury Secretary? Remember him? The one who had to leave the presidency at Harvard because of his SEXIST TREATMENT OF WOMEN???? Just more of the same from Obama.
Oh, there are a few women's names bandied around for his cabinet positions, but not as many as the men, that's for sure. I guess Dr. Lynette Long was right on target when she reported this:
"I want gender parity. I want Obama to go on National television and announce the he will select a female running mate and that half of his cabinet will be women." He was silent for a second and then sheepishly replied, "We can't do that?" "Why not?" I asked. "We are over half the population?" "We can't do that! What if there isn't a competent woman?" I was stunned. "There are 300 million people in this country, and you can't find a handful of competent women for the cabinet?" I chided. "You want affirmative action. I don't believe in affirmative action." "That's my offer, take it or leave it." He left it and guess what, he hasn't called me any more.
Obama doesn't believe in supporting women. I'll use a recent NYT article as evidence. It cited that Obama has 300 foreign policy advisers. The times posted pictures of the top twenty-one of them. Two were women. That's less than ten percent. So much for parity. So much for the politics of change.
Yeah, and I haven't heard any woman's name floated for any part of Obama's cabinet, have you?
Here's why I am so damn cranky today, besides all of the ranting above: the Democrats are acting EXACTLY like the Republicans did in 2000. EXACTLY. Ignoring all of the fraud, claiming the "losers" need to get over it, Obama is a Uniter and a Healer, and will make America proud again. Blech. What a crock. This man has not even served a full term in the Senate, and the vast majority of his time there has been spent CAMPAIGNING! Since when is that sufficient experience for the highest office in the land? Even assuming there was no caucus fraud, or Convention fraud, or RBC fraud, or voter fraud, even assuming ALL of that, Obama is WOEFULLY inexperienced, unqualified, and unprepared. Not to mention homophobic and misogynistic. Oh, and ARROGANT as all hell. What a guy.
I understand that many African Americans are ecstatic that "one of their own" is now the President-Elect. But as Patsy from the "Our View - withPatsy and Sugar" on NoQuarter Radio said last night, Obama did NOT grow up like the vast majority of African Americans in this country, he did not grow up in their community. I guess it really doesn't matter that he is bi-racial, and raised by the white side of the family. Why let facts inform the fantasy? Shut up already! Ahem.
Finally, there is the whole "the voting was of RECORD proportions!" meme being spread far and wide by the Obama Propaganda News. How else to say this? Well, it's a crock of hooey. The difference between this election and the last one? One percentage point more! Oh, dear goddess, He really IS the Messiah! WOWIE ZOWIE!!!!! Uh, yeah, no, not really. It is not a record turnout, as it turns out. Just one more notch in the "reality" surrounding the candidate, uh, President-Elect, who has rewritten his history whenever it suits. Unfortunately, it suits him a whole bunch.
See, just like Bush in 2000. Only this time the shoe is on the other foot. The Democrats could care less about the irony of it all, the fraud of it all, as long as they won. It really is upside down world now...And it makes me cranky as hell.
