Obama Douchebags

For the past year and a half I've had to listen (and sometimes argue) with supporters of Barack Obama who tell me how great it's going to be when "The One" takes the reigns of power and rights the sinking ship of America. Never mind that the guy had no legitimate experience to become President of the US, that he was an obvious opportunist who played upon peoples guilt and fantasy that mixed race "African American" could heal the deep philosophical breach between Red/Blue America, that his associations with people like Jeramah Wright and Tony Rezko (not to mention Weathermen terrorists Willliam Ayres and Bernadine Dohrn) were not important and that the hatred of the Clintons that he leveraged and exploited to win the nomination for President of the Democrat party would not come back to bite him in the ass.

Now the bloom is off the rose and the new flower on the political scene has stolen the spotlight - her name is Sarah Palin and her ascension to national politics has blown up Obama's campaign in a way that is truly revolutionary. Obama and Biden are going to loose and I would not be surprised to see McCain/Palin win in a landslide simply as a result of Palin's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. Left wing commentators admit that she got a few good jabs in at Obama in her speech - I beg to differ - She went Chuck Norris on his ass and showed him to be the narcissistic lightweight he is. It was brutal and totally demoralizing to his supporters, and for good reason, she made him look like a paper tiger and she made his supporters look like fools.

What does this deep sense of demoralization look like? There are thousands of examples all over the web, but one shining example was Maureen Dowd who wrote a piece for the Sunday NYTimes entitled Clash of the Titans where she:
  1. Admits the Sarah Palin is a Titan in American politics.
  2. Admits that Barack 0 is going to loose - setting up a 2012 Clinton vs. Palin face off.
  3. Basically looses her mind in a weird fantasy interchange between Hillary and Sarah.

This is the brilliance of the Palin pick for VP combined with the Palin performance which has been stellar - It drives the media and political elite nuts - more than nuts - it forces them to confront so many ingrained assumptions about their world that it induces an almost catatonic state of impotence and despair.
