I don’t have it in me to be my usual sunny self. I am morose. I’m as sad as a homeless guy who just found out the Democrats pay only for votes and that, tomorrow, he’ll be back to counting cans for the recycling deposits.
Acrimony, slander and rage led us inevitably to Election Day 2012. Campaign mouthpieces on both sides hurled accusations and counteraccusations ranging from honest to ludicrous. Now, it’s time to get out and vote. As I’ve warned you before, the Democrats are planning to do so twice.
The storm named Sandy swept away more than houses and property. It swept President Barack Obama’s scandals off the front pages as well. The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and Operation Fast and Furious have slipped off the radar.
Mormonism doesn’t work for me. But here’s the really cool part: I don’t spend time thinking about LDS doctrine, nor do I have to. Mormons are welcome to believe whatever the heck they want; the last time I checked, that’s the American (not to mention Constitutional) way.
Watergate was a two-bit burglary by operatives for the Richard Nixon Administration. The Libya scandal is much worse, as Senator John McCain (Neocon-Ariz.) pointed out on Sunday. People actually died; four of them to be precise. One of them was the U.S. ambassador.
As last week drew to a close, a new viral ad hit the Web. In it, a young woman named Lena Durham — otherwise noteworthy for acting in, writing, directing and producing some witless, juvenile shlock named “Girls” for HBO — describes in sexual undertones voting for Barack Obama.
U.S. and Israeli troops held “their largest-ever joint military drill” Wednesday in preparation for the coming assault on Iran. “Make no mistake. The U.S. is 100 percent committed to the security of Israel. That commitment drives this exercise,” said U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin.
Some funny material came out of the Presidential elections. But I don’t let the laughter distract me from the bigger picture. Barack Obama was trying a little too hard to distract us from the very real failures that have defined his own tenure. Not funny.
Want proof that America has sunk to the level of a Third World banana republic? Four words: United Nations election observers. A U.N.-affiliated agency will be observing the Nov. 6 U.S. election for election fraud and voter suppression.
As I write this, the hours tick inexorably toward the final Presidential debate of the 2012 electoral season. Someone tell me how it turns out. I’m tired of these debate dog and pony shows.
