I thought today a good day to end this blog, since it marks the final nail in the coffin of the old republic and the beginning of new "America" - white liberals enthusiastically welcome Obama as a quasi messiah who will cleanse them of white guilt and 'prove' racism has been transcended, but in reality, they have elected a Madhi. Not that McCain would have been much better, he perhaps would have kept the republic on life support a couple of years longer, but it is certain that Obama will end it swiftly.
Wild prediction? The people I have been listening to correctly forecast the Iraq war would be a disaster, the WMD were false, the Neocons would destroy the Republican party, that the easy money policies of the Fed and cheap mortgages would cause economic disaster. Now those things have come to pass. "My people" are predicting end of this nation and the very possibly necessity for session or armed resistance to a tyrannical, unconstitutional government.
If the government is no longer following the constitution than it is not longer running on any authority but power, and that power must be challenged. The time for words will be over soon, and I am getting a jump on things. The long march of the sixties is here, and its going to get ugly fast. I can no longer spend time hammering out out warnings, bitter comments and I told you sos, it's time for action.
My final bit of advice:: Get gun, learn to defend yourself.
and we’re just living in it.
From the NYT:
Following the Script: Obama, McCain and ‘The West Wing’
By BRIAN STELTER
When Eli Attie, a writer for “The West Wing,” prepared to plot some episodes about a young Democratic congressman’s unlikely presidential bid, he picked up the phone and called David Axelrod.
Mr. Attie, a former speechwriter for Vice President Al Gore, and Mr. Axelrod, a political consultant, had crossed campaign trails before. “I just called him and said, ‘Tell me about Barack Obama,’ ” Mr. Attie said.
Days after Mr. Obama, then an Illinois state senator, delivered an address to the 2004 Democratic National Convention, the two men held several long conversations about his refusal to be defined by his race and his aspirations to bridge the partisan divide. Mr. Axelrod was then working on Mr. Obama’s campaign for the United States Senate; he is now Mr. Obama’a chief strategist.
Four years later, the writers of “The West Wing” are watching in amazement as the election plays out. The parallels between the final two seasons of the series (it ended its run on NBC in May 2006) and the current political season are unmistakable.
Italics are mine.
Isn’t it remarkable that 20 months into the Obama campaign, the New York Times doesn’t pay any attention to the candidate’s own 460 pages about “a boy’s search for his father, and through that search a workable meaning for his life as a black American;” and how “I can embrace my black brothers and sisters, whether in this country or in Africa, and affirm a common destiny …” and instead prints as fact the talking points of his hired gun spinmeister: “his refusal to be defined by his race and his aspirations to bridge the partisan divide”?
