general: hao! dai ye! we won again! this is good, but what is best in life? mongol: the open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair. general: wrong! conan! what is best in life? conan: to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women. general: that is good! that is good. — conan the barbarian (1982)
i can't help but look at the frustration, anger and despair taking hold in the right blogosphere and not be reminded of the angst experienced on the left in both 2000 and 2004.
it got so bad that many on the left refused to believe the signs accumulating over the last four years, in both polling and demographics, of the coming electoral tsunami. they grew too comfortable with reflexively invoking the name of the dread god "diebold!" in the face of any promising data, as if the curse by itself were powerful enough to dispell all rational reason to hope.
what a difference a day makes. november 4th, 2008, to be exact.
so to listen, a week after the bloody republican rout, to the yelping of the vanquished, their rending of garments and the wailing of their women and children, to me it sounds all so familiar ... but for the first time in years, it sounds all so pleasant to hear.
maybe now the dimwits in the rnc leadership will realize what happens when you stray from principles.... and that when you’re facing a coordinated national campaign, running a decentralized "every man for himself" front guarantees a loss.
i'm sorry, but if these elections are stolen, as it seems to be the case in minnesota, how is the "straying from principles" going to help?
we can't put the yoke back in the eggs. if the filthy rats have 60 seats in the senate and the obamessiah in the white house we are finished.
the left fails to appreciate the suicidal nature of their philosophy. let them starve on the decaying bones of a once strong people. fine by me.
count that again. fifty-seven 'rats, plus snowe, collins, mccain and specter. they already have 61 votes.
they stole the election in many states and all we here is the sound of CRICKETS. is anyone alive out there????
the rnc was in power for nearly 6 years. they should have done everything possible to reduce the possiblity of voter fraud in the future like requiring photo ids!
the dems' attitude now is essentially...."everyone knows we're cheating, and there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it. we'll do what we want."
i was waiting for the rnc to SLAM these "recounts", rolling out facts and figures and generally showing that the dnc is stealing the seats.
still waiting. i haven't even heard a whimper.
whatever happens.. fine by me. the same people who are winners today will be the same people who are winners tomorrow and the losers will go right on suffering.
so man is walking backwards, so what? we don't go to mars? big whoop, we've got time before our sun gets big and red. someone has to create things for there to be things. it'll start up again.
barack hussein will soon win the same percentage of the electorate as saddam hussein once did.
isn't it amazing how long it always takes to count the votes in these contested elections? you wouldn't think it would take so much time for them to finish creating those fraudulent ballots. i guess they are being paid by the hour.
the differences between our election system and that of a banana republic are approaching neglibible.
