Even if you were vision-impaired you would have seen it coming.

To the grievous loss of the Democrat political machine, this is a year of fundamental change in the electorate, establishing new, lasting, long-term voting patterns. That is because the Democrats have been exposed as who they really are, socialist apostles of radical leftist revolutionaries like Saul Alinsky. Among the key changes will be the collapse of the limousine liberals, who will finally recognize that revolution is not fun when you are actually the target of the roused mob. This will be especially so if the Republicans target them by explaining realities they don’t get from the former mainstream media, like how vast government support is now for the poor, and how high taxes are now on the most productive. Many of the most liberal members of Congress hail from wealthy, limousine liberal districts, and their loss will be an epochal blow to the Democrat machine. This may take until 2012 or 2014 to fully play out.
Another key change, New England will become a competitive 50/50 region long term, because the Yankees were never really socialists. They just still don’t like southerners and their open religiosity, which seemed to have become the face of the Republican Party. Republicans who run exhibiting New England Yankee culture have proven they can sweep the region.
Of course, there are some who will never get it. I have heard directly from some of the handful of listeners of “progressive” talk radio (“progressive,” again, is a polite word for “Marxist”), who display evidence of mental illness. (I have that evidence in writing if anyone wants to question it.) These “progressive talk radio” types represent single digits of public opinion, and that meager penetration will be all downhill from here.
The emerging Republican control of Congress will create a whole new political dynamic regarding President Obama, who will try to play off the Republican congressional majorities to win reelection, taking credit for the good they do while fear mongering them still more. President Obama does not have the ideological agility of a President Clinton to pull this off. Congressional Republicans will need to be smart in forcing him to veto populist conservative initiatives. More likely, however, the Democrats will eat him alive for politically trashing the party, and he won’t even make it to the 2012 ballot, as I have also predicted. Notice the talk already of a Hillary challenge for 2012, even before the political earthquake this fall.
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?
