Bush received a mandate
Now that the latest version of who can work a ballot has been concluded, we can all relax and look forward to the bloodbath that will be the 2008 election.
To my consternation, this election should have been an absolute blow out but wasn’t. Then again, considering George W. Bush took not only the Electoral College but also the greatest popular vote in history, maybe it was.
Perhaps this explains why. Witness the recent airing of daytime diva Oprah Winfrey’s “Vote Party” just prior to the election. On said show, Winfrey featured celebrity activists like P. Diddy, Drew Barrymore, Christina Aguilera and Cameron Diaz. No secret which side these people supported.
After a brief discussion with Ms. Diva about lynching and the vote, Diaz spoke of the dire consequences for women if they sat out this election, to wit:
DIAZ: We have a voice now, and we’re not using it, and women have so much to lose. I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies. We could lo—if you think that rape should be legal, then don’t vote. But if you think that you have a right to your body, and you have a right to say what happens to you and fight off that danger of losing that, then you should vote, and those are the…
WINFREY: It’s your voice.
DIAZ: It’s your voice. It’s your voice, that’s your right.
OK, let’s recap. Your failure to vote would lead to legalized rape. If this had been the only bit of liberal stupification this election, it’d just been laughed off.
These are self-absorbed screwballs who support banning guns—except the ones their bodyguards use to protect them and their children. They support keeping children hostage in public schools—except their own who have access to private institutions. They are sanctimonious environmentalists who oppose ostentatious energy consumption—except for their own multiple mansions, SUVs and Gulfstream jets.
It is hard to imagine Kerry not really connecting with Joe Sixpack with all the support from Hollywood, America-hating United Nations leaders, prancing gay activists, gangster rappers, Rosie and her anti-traditional family clan, PETA’s anti-beef protesters who wouldn’t hunt a bird but are OK with infanticide, and that all-American voice of the people, pseudo-documentary-filmmaker Michael “I’m really an intellectual” Moore.
This from a party that piously claims to represent the poor and downtrodden. Clearly, I can see why all left-leaning types would be squarely behind any candidate or party Oprah and company would support.
Well, maybe not.
And let us not forget the liberal media’s (CBS, 60 Minutes, The New York Times, et. al.) 24/7 campaign to portray Bush as the war-mongering, imbecile president and at the same time morph Kerry into a moderate messiah “with a plan,” despite a 20-year Senate record to the contrary.
Yet we illiterate, knuckle-dragging Neanderthals gave Bush this overwhelming mandate: “Continue, Mr. President.” And the proverbial nail in the coffin of liberalism is that we gave him a Republican Congress to do just that. (I note with conservative glee that only four of the 26 Democratic challengers for governorships and Congress that had been endorsed and bankrolled by moveon.org money were actually elected.)
Now the liberal loons wax poetically about how Bush should reach out and heal a divided America.
Excuse me? Where is the common ground on partial-birth abortions?
Eleven states, including liberal Oregon (which voted Kerry), had initiatives to ban same-sex marriage on the ballot. They all overwhelmingly passed.
I could go on, but I’m not seeing a lot of common ground here.
I’m thinking the Republicans are going to steamroller the conservative agenda like there is no tomorrow. Enjoy the ride. I know I will.
