I love Jeffrey Lord’s article, “Batman and Rush”! Even more, I love his theory on why we will elect the Batman, John Wayne, Rush Limbaugh candidate, John McCain, rather than the squishy, nuanced radical Obama. However, one question remains: How did Jimmah Carter get elected? Is he the anomaly that proves the theory or just a moment of insanity in American electoral history? Also, Bill Clinton: not the reptilian brain, just a snake!p>Thanks for an entertaining and uplifting read! br> — Susan Whitlock br> Nantucket, Massachusetts /p> p> Editor: Where were you when the article “Batman and Rush” was approved for your publication? Were you asleep at the switch? Were you in love with the premise and thus did not scrutinize the actual writing? I do not think it was sophomoric because of affirmative action that has caused a dumbing down in education…thus will call it seniororic. At any rate, the article was poorly written and needed a strong editorial hand. Nothing wrong with the subject or the entertaining premise. But surely someone at The American Spectator has got a red pencil. br> — Anne Burkart /p> p> Jeff Lord’s musing on the U.S. cultural obstacles to the “The One” being elected above his pay grade to POTUS aside (Is there a Higher pay grade?), I think the REAL reason the faux R McCain will win in November is homicidal reality. The Russian Bear’s assault on Georgia will have much more to do with a McCain White House then any cultural passing spark in the night. As much as the Russian’s would much rather have a useful idiot like “The One” to terrorize, intimidate into submission and play with, like a cat with a mortally wounded mouse, any semi-conscious individual who is watching the “drive by” media is (or should be), scared to death by the Russian re-start of WWIV and know that somebody that will react to real attacks with how he feels about the mass slaughter of civilians by drunken Russian soldiers and whines “Can’t we all just get along?” as the bombs fall is not POTUS material. Sheer fear for survival of family and friends will decide the vote. Not sure how this will ultimately play out, it is far from over as I write this, but the Bear just swatted “The One” into the shadows of history. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
