"... it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
-- Senator Barack Hussein Obama, San Francisco Fundraiser, 2008
"They say I'm dumb. Yes, I'm dumb. I'm so dumb I got two Lincoln Continentals, that's how damn dumb I am!"
-- Lenny Bruce send up of an Evangelical preacher in the brilliant Religions Inc. (1958)
It's a common trait of political elites to look down their noses at those who cling to their guns and religion and characterize it as a disorder. This year, though, it's proving to be a big mistake.
Signs continue to build that the state-run media's attempt to demonize the Tea Party movement has flopped on Main Street, if not Broadway. It was always about preaching to the perverted anyway and, thanks to Barack Hussein Obama, their numbers are dwindling rapidly. The Republicans' ugly knee-jerk reaction to the Tea Party challenge is fading too, now that the blue blazer conservatives have been mugged by the bumpkins and the party's operatives are beginning to see the light (of victory).
It's entirely possible the great wave of hysteria that brought the Obamatons to power will utterly recede only two years after it inundated the land. If it does, it will be an affirmation of the underlying health and restorative powers of America's instincts and common sense.
Yet, as nice as that sounds, don't take it for granted. Complacency is not an option. There's still almost two months to go and only an all-out effort from here to the finish line will bring success. Obama will not go without a fight, and men like him seldom fight fair.
Only overwhelming with our numbers will work.
Remember: "If it's not close, they can't cheat."
