Bravo, Stacy McCain! I look forward to a follow-up analysis of Obama’s spastic arm-waving today, as he said, “Everyone [I love the anonymous “everyone” quotes of desperation] I meet is saying the Republicans are goin’ to attack your character — they gonna be swift-boatin’ you…” Well, Obama had better review the contents of Unfit for Command and consider that we have yet to see John Kerry’s military records, as refutation.
B.O. is beginning to sweat. (That would make a nice bumper sticker) As my sainted, if irreverent mama used to say, he is as nervous as a pregnant fox in a forest fire.
Sometime back I wrote in to predict that McCain would wait until August to say “OK, I’ve had enough — no more Mr. Nice Guy” and he would begin skewering and serving Barry up “en brochette” at every opportunity. If he had hammered him from the start, he would have validated the curmudgeon label.
This campaign may not be a snoozer, after all. My politically challenged husband commented today after hearing the “Um, ah, uh,Y’ow,” montage Rush has been airing. “They say he does well on a teleprompter, wonder why he can’t speak extemporaneously?” I said “For the same reason Charlie McCarthy was not a solo act, Hal.” Remarks like that land with a thud on my poor husband. He said “How could he, Charlie McCarthy was a dummy….” Exactly.
Funny McCain would use the word meltdown in describing Muskie’s fall. Muskie swore it was a snowflake melting on his cheek. But those macho ruffian reporter guys said he had teared up in defending his wife’s honor. Lordy, how things change! Bill Clinton must have squirted his eyes with pepper spray before every performance, to ensure his appearing as though on the brink of bawling. I could never witness it without thinking of Nelson Eddy ’ “Sweetest little feller, ev’rybody knows, Don’t know what to call him but he’s mighty lachrymose…”
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?
