Barack Hussein Obama has taken one giant step to becoming the first REAL (sorry Bill) Black leader of the free world. In what must seem like a slow and painful death to Hillary's "It's MY turn!" campaign, Hillary, now running on negative cash, will plow on. She'll shed an occasional tear or direct her attack dog when she thinks she can get away with it. But as it appears today, Barack has a distinct edge over the Clintons in the remaining primaries.
Then it'll be on to McCain and into the office of stain and cigars, where Obama won't have a clue as to what to do next.
But that's another story, and only if the Republican Party abandons John McCain. Last time I looked, McCain, a long time Republican Senator, is running as a Republican. I don't believe anyone has asked him to leave the party, even though he toyed with free agency for a while. He's not my first choice…or second choice, but he will be voted in as our team leader.
An end should be like a convenience store: open 24/7
As any quarterback worth his protection will attest, you don't throw to the guy that's covered, you pass to the man that's open, even if it wasn't the play your principles say should have worked.
I understand occasionally inane Ann Coulter, Hillary and Bill's newest cheerleader not getting this, but Rush? In case you're from Branson, Rush spends a good deal of his otherwise excellent radio program, demonizing McCain. I thought Limbaugh understood "strategery" better than most, since he invented the word. Isn't the idea to keep the enemy at bay while securing a win, not intentionally throwing "principled" interceptions until you lose the contest?
Further, one doesn't have to beat their opponent 40-zip every game. Sometimes a 17-14 victory will suffice. If you don't believe me, ask Eli and the Giants. So you might have to fake to the left then throw to the right. Who cares? It's within the rules and we win!
If everyone thought their vote unimportant, we could rid ourselves of elections
I'm celebrating Barack's victory(s), especially here in Missouri. I appeared for my vote, sans TV and media. I, being well known and controversial in my small town as a conservative, was led to 3 stacks of ballots. Automatically offered the Republican pile by the voting police, I asked if I had to vote Republican. After a stunned, "No…are you kidding?" response, I openly weighed the options. I decided that a vote for Obama would fit my goal for the primary: NO MORE CLINTONS, IN OR NEAR THE WHITE HOUSE!
Last night before taking in a St. Louis Blues game, I heard Hillary declared winner of Missouri's primary, only to wake up to the sweet music of a Barack "Show-Me State" comeback win. And he won by one vote, MY vote…..plus another 10,000 or so. So my strategy worked.
If he wins, we'll have an honest, articulate socialist, who at least knows we have to hit terrorists in Pakistan, Iran, or Afghanistan, just inexplicitly not Iraq, vs. a candidate that's so dishonest she'll use her husband to race-bait for her while she claims deniability.
They're both beatable, but if he does win the presidency, maybe Obama will listen to reason. One does not reason with a Clinton unless you have a hot poll in your hand. It's all about them, not the USA.
I'm not smart enough to dumb things down
The worst thing you can do is capitulate to those that would shut you down, Rush. You did happen to know that Hillary is in favor of the fairness doctrine, or as it's known in the Midwest, "The Limbaugh 401K enactment plan." If you want to fight for your right to opine on a mike, you may want to do more to defeat this woman.
My idea of victory is to hear legendary Werner Wolff say in early November, "If you took Obama to win the presidency and the Democrats to maintain their control of congress, YOU LOSE!"
