When you vote with the enemy

Osama and various other real bad guys and less (Eurocowards)bad guys are thrilled with the outcome of the US election this past Tuesday.

I wonder what it feels like to have voted the way Osama hoped you would. Hopefully the dems won't have too much to regret during the next two years.

I think they are crazily, steadfastly and myopically wrong headed but I still wouldn't want them to be responsible for a catastrophe. Hopefully the Republican Administration will be able to keep the Congress from completely exposing the nation to the real bad guys' worst designs.

Rumsfeld Resignation

President Bush has just announced that Rumsfeld is leaving. I suppose I understand the strategy, removing a lightening rod and hoping to defuse some of the more time wasting activities that the Dem Congress would immediately undertake.

I predict that if the Senate goes Dem they will not confirm Gates in their zeal to keep Rummy where they can get at him. (Wrong again!) The Dems don't want to win the war, they want to bury Bush.

I have been embarrassed by W a few times. A few minutes ago he was forced to admit he lied to reporters in his office last week. A very poor performance indeed.

Post Election Post

I had predicted that we would hold both the House and the Senate. At the moment, I was at least half wrong (UPDATE: 100% wrong). We have definitely lost the House and may yet lose the Senate. Congratulations to the Dems. They win.

While I would have preferred a different outcome I think that there are many benefits that will flow from the outcome we have. In no particular order they are:

1) Lincoln Chaffe is gone and won't be heard from again;
2) Mike Dewine is gone and won't be heard from again;
3) Dems will be forced to show their true colors on National Security issues and my guess is that the electorate won't be amused;
4) Dems will be forced to come up with policy initiatives and my guess is that the electorate won't take kindly to higher taxes and more rights for criminals and terrorists.
5) Our 2008 nominee will not have to overcome the negative coattail effect that might have been produced had the congressional housecleaning not taken place yesterday.

John Kerry, Military Strategist

Below is a partial transcript of Kerry's appearance on Imus this morning. The transcript is copied from WSJ, OnlineJournal, Best of the Web.

It is absolutely astonishing that a man this stupid would continue to speak aloud. But thank goodness he does. We couldn't possibly make this stuff up.

"Centipede MouthHow many feet can John Kerry fit in that mouth of his? Here he is on "Imus in the Morning" today:

Kerry: These guys have failed America. The people who owe an apology are people like Donald Rumsfeld, who didn't send enough troops, who didn't listen to the generals, who has made every mistake in the book. . . .who didn't send

Imus: . . . Senator John McCain, he seems to think--he seems to agree with the Bush administration about your comments. And you know him, obviously, better than I do, but I know him pretty well. And he probably knows what you meant, too.

Kerry: I'm sorry that John McCain has said what he said. John McCain's been a friend for a long time. But I have to tell you, I think John McCain is wrong about this.

John McCain has been a cheerleader for a policy that is incorrect. John McCain says we ought to send another 100,000 troops over there. First of all, we don't have another 100,000 troops. Secondly, if you send them over there, it's going to do exactly what's already happened, which is attract more terrorists and more jihadists. Our own generals are telling us that it's the numbers of troops that are the problem.

So the administration didn't send enough troops and it sent too many troops? If only we had such a decisive, principled leader as president!"

What else can one say.

Contradictions on the Left

This morning my local paper ran an AP "news" story by Michael Rubinkam about the flight of "Latinos" from Hazelton, PA in anticipation of the implementation today of "...a tough, first of its kind law targeting illegal immigrants...". (Curiously the headline used the word "Latinos" to describe the victims of this latest white outrage but the "story" describes them as "Hispanic" and never uses the word "Latino".)

The story tells the tales of apparently "Latino/Hispanic" shop owners in Hazelton whose businesses have been adversely affected by the flight of the "Latinos/Hispanics ". The "evidence suggests", Mr. Rubinkam says, "many Hispanics, legal and otherwise, have already left". Not surprisingly, Mr. Rubinkam does not actually cite any evidence. Par for the course in the "Lame Stream Media".

There is an amusing contradiction raised by the anecdotal evidence he does cite; the business owners. Given that we all know that illegal immigrants are paid nothing by their slavish white masters, how could entire businesses be built on their purchases? In fact, according to the author, there is an "Hispanic business district" in Hazelton. Wow, all those business built on wages that no one can even live on. Imagine.
