With 31 days to go…

I’m reminded of the words of Margaret Thatcher:

I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.

Indeed. In fact the left’s desperation has winged past the smell stage, to downright decay. The sinking ship is crumbling beneath them, and that water’s cold.

When the POTUS plays the race card, it’s almost over. Ken Taylor said it best:

In one of the most ridiculous analogies of his Presidency, during two speeches Barack Obama compared the, “impatience,” over the time it is taking for the economic recovery to the long battle during the early history of this country to free the slaves. Referring to the impatience Americans are having with his failed economic policy Obama stated that he too was impatient almost begging for Americans to be patient, give him more time and then threw in, “it took time to free the slaves.”

What an arrogant and completely imbecilic statement made by a politician much less a President. Trying to compare his failing and disastrous agenda to the battle this country had in its infancy to free slaves is ludicrous at best. Especially when one understands that Obama’s agenda with government expansion and control over the private sector CREATES slaves to an over bearing government where individuals are made dependent to government rather than being free to prosper of their own accord.

Run on off to Camp David, BO, with your Tuscan sun-lamp. It will be over soon.

Just Plain Stupid

The 10:10 uber-environmentalist video that everyone is talking about is just plain stupid. Stunningly stupid. (Warning – not for little eyes.)

And Ed has the EyeBlast version, in case this one gets pulled by the inconsistent YouTube folks.

What makes this fascinating is that the people who produce this dreck have no clue as to just how far removed they have become from normal human sensibilities, or at least they didn’t until the video began provoking the fully-predictable reaction. They have become so wrapped up in Gaia that they seem to have little connection to humanity.

The other, mainly unrelated point that comes to mind is that this represents a reductio ad absurdum of the view from the hard Left about how dissent gets treated by the mainstream American populace, vis-a-vis the Iraq war especially. Can you imagine the reaction had an organization like Move America Forward produced a video like this, where those who didn’t support a robust strategy for the war on terror were blown up by a button-pushing advocate for the strategy? Especially children in a classroom being terrorized by their teacher into compliance with the groupthink?

UPDATE: Verum Serum gets the nod for the most pun-ful post title – Climate Fanatic’s Cult of Gore. Surely Smitty, the Galactic PunMeister, is still recovering from his birthday celebration yesterday, otherwise he’d have had an entry or two.
