The Bitch is Back
Bwarny Frank survived a serious challenge to his seat...er...office in the House. He was not pleased. In fact, he was a deeply, darkly twisted sister over the prospect of having to really fight a political campaign.
Chock full o'nuts
As Bwarny notes, Deemocrats did very well in Massachusetts. Despite the nation in general turning a deep red, there were places where that was not so. Which is fine. That is was Federalism is really all about.
It was that way in Kulhifornia, too. The people of that state chose an ancient moonbat for governor over a very successful lady who headed a major corporation. Which, I suppose, is a great moment in gender equality. They returned to the Senate one of the stupidest people in that body, Barbara Boxer. Fine. They get what they deserve.
Which goes to the proposition that...regardless of the generalized out-break of sound thinking we saw around the nation...there will be areas of this nation that are simply Collectivist enclaves. They are nuts, and cannot see reality. What the election permits is that they be nuts, without dictating to the rest of us that we be nuts, too. I will not pay a cent to bail out California or Massachusetts. Let them learn by eating the consequences of their choices.
Delusions Are Grander
Nancy lost her joy-stick. She has no regrets, says she. In the House of Mirrors that is San Francisco political "thinking", she is warmly loved by the voters, after all.
She's trying to herd the cats of her remaining caucus to get their votes so she can be Minority Leader. Perhaps they really are that stupid. I cannot venture a guess on that. But if they are not, they will remember the trail to the edge of the cliff, and the Collectivist ideologues who led them OFF the cliff, and they will remember 2012 is coming.
Speaking of delusional ideologues and cliffs, The Mad King Barack continued his war on reality, post-election. He only failed in helping us understand his brilliance. There was his tragic flaw...imaging. Everything else is hunky-dory.
"You know, I think that over the course of two years we were so busy and so focused on getting a bunch of stuff done that we stopped paying attention to the fact that leadership isn’t just legislation. That it’s a matter of persuading people. And giving them confidence and bringing them together. And setting a tone. And making an argument that people can understand. And I think that we haven’t always been successful at that."Lest anyone think that delusional thinking is solely the province of the Collective (instead of just being their forte), let me point to the Mad Men of the GOP. They claim...risibly...that the TEA Party failed...was in fact a bunch of stupid, feckless rubes for putting O'Donnell, Angle, and one or two others up for election instead of those tried and true COINs (Conservatives Only In Name) who would have been shoo-ins. Wow. Both tone-deaf and brain-dead in the same individuals. The TEA Party won the day. And TEA Party-backed minority candidates form the new vanguard of the House and Senate. Men like West and Rubio, and CONSERVATIVE women abounding now.
I cannot leave the election aftermath without noting the amazing nonsense published by the NYT. I know, we expect nothing less. But this was superlative. According to Timothy Egan, Obama saved capitalism, and it cost him the mid-terms.
Not only is that the most amazing twaddle, it is trite twaddle. I have heard (or read) professors of history intone the same BS about FDR saving capitalism from itself. Please! Read a freaking book! One on economics, preferably.
What Obama HAS done is convert the U.S. into the Obamabanana Republic, perverting contract, property, and bankruptcy law in the process. He has imposed a fascist economic model on much of the U.S. economy, and that will be the work of years to reverse.
And Americans won't forget it. Nor will they be duped by people like Egan or Collectivist organs like the NYT. We have to CAREFULLY watch the new Congress, and we have look to 2012. This is not a time for rest.
