November 4, 2004p>Headline: A BLUE CITY (DISCONSOLATE, EVEN) BEWILDERED BY A RED AMERICA br> Reporter: Joseph Berger br> Message. A voter in Manhattan says, “New York is an island off the coast of Europe.” “Some New Yorkers said…they didn’t even know any people who voted for President Bush.” What is happening to our world! This makes no sense! /p>
Ahhhhh. But fear not. The Times was already thinking ahead when it ran this story on October 27:p>Headline: WHERE TO CATCH A RISING POLITICAL STAR? TRY ILLINOIS br> Reporter: Monica Davey br> Message: There’s this hot black guy named Barack Obama and he’s raised all this money that he’s giving out to U.S. Senate candidates all over America. But why? Why would a mere Illinois State Senator be doing this in the middle of his own campaign to get elected to the U.S. Senate? He says he can’t wait to get to Washington and work with Hillary Clinton! /p>
THERE’S MORE, much more. But you get the picture of the 2004 candidates per the New York Times. George Bush is a racist thug and a coward with a paranoid nut for a running mate. John Kerry is a jovial athletic war hero who loves demanding sports and would make a superb Commander in Chief. The economy has fallen apart, the Pentagon is spending like a drunken sailor, but all of this is ignored by Fox News which is a right-wing “duvet of rage.” Not to worry, though, because Dan Rather is aggressively getting The Truth out in spite of these idiots. The polls are great, blacks are swaying with delight in the pews, and women are streaming into Kerry’s camp because they are terrified of the idiots Bush might put on the Supreme Court. The Pope actually loves Kerry and is trying quietly to get the message out to Catholics with the help of the Times.
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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
