Today’s headlines indicate that the Democrat political machine is desperate and flailing about as their support in the nation crumbles. Finally, after 2+ years of arrogant denial they are realizing they are not the darling of voters, nor are they the clever Svengalis of political leadership. At best they are naive and bumbling. At worst they are crooked and bumbling. Whatever, they are bumbling about like mad today.
The point is the left is nowhere near as smart and gifted as they tell themselves, and it is beginning to show. I would say neither party is as clever as they think when they have the audacity to dictate to this great nation what is right or wrong. My view is we should trust the general goodness and capacity of the people first, and don’t obsess or twist our society around a few screw ups or truly evil exceptions. We have laws and punishments to handle clearly out of bounds behavior. We don’t need to try and ratchet down the spectrum of allowable acts, deeds and words to some mythical purity created from political party think tanks. Morality and politics divorced a long time ago.
But I digress. The first act of trying to be purer than the other poor sobs is to throw out baseless or twisted attacks – to smear the other side. One of the more desperate moves on the part of this imploding administration (which now faces two serious scandals: one involving gun running and one involving crony capitalism) has been the launch of a thin skinned website called Attackwatch. Supposedly it is an attempt to gain the high ground after months of bad mouthing its political opponents. It reeks of whiny impotence. It is not presidential nor being taken seriously. And it is going over like the proverbial led balloon.
The timing could not be worse, though, as a ridiculous smear campaign is launched against Sarah Palin:
In the book, which will be published on September 20th, McGinniss claims Sarah had a steamy … hookup with basketball stud GLEN RICE less than a year before she eloped with her husband Todd.
So, you’re wondering where is the big news about a premarital romantic fling? Especially from the ‘free love’ left who fawn at the feet of Jane Fonda and other icons of feminine reserve? Well, we all knew the race card was going to be played, and it would be really pathetic. But this time around it seems to be completely incoherent – a sure sign this is a coordinated hit job out of the whiz kids in DC:
A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a “fetish” for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had “hauled (Rice’s) ass down.”
Ahhh. She had a romantic fling with a black guy! ….
OK, I still don’t get why this is ‘stop the presses’ news. Is the left now revisiting its racist roots, when it was the Democrats who resisted racial unity, fought against racial equity and went to war with a GOP president over slavery? Are they trying to ignite some mythical rejection of ‘Sarah the White’ because she dated a black guy (and married an descendent of Eskimos)? Are they really this childish and bitter?
Pathetic. You could not create a clearer juxtaposition of left wing madness than these two stories. The above ‘book’ was written by a left wing stalker/writer McGinniss, and is apparently filled with anonymous claims running from adultery to drug use. In essence, now liberal fantasies about their opponents are hard news. This will create a huge backlash of support for Main Street Mother and Wife Sarah Palin. And it will deem burning in hell for the purveyors of this disgusting smear campaign a light sentence. The left never understood going gutter with Palin is a sure sign of depravity and a signal to reject the offending lick-spittle-mad lefty.
No word yet if there are shady real estate deals like the Obama’s received with convicted felon Tony Rezko, or any attempts to seat cronies like Valerie Jarret into newly vacant senate seat. Nor are there and other criminal conspiracies like shoveling tax payer money to donors and failed green business ideas, or letting gun runs amok on the streets of Mexico so they can follow the trail of dead and injured to already known drug cartels.
Nope, nothing like what is being seen discovered on the left. But man, you know, a white women dating a black guy is so ….
1950′s stupid crap. Folks, the left is not only stuck on stupid, they are stuck in the last century mentally and emotionally. They are still chasing long dead racists, still fighting long gone labor issues, still looking for long won sexual equality (and I means between the sexes, and not between sex acts). They are devoid of experience, insight and even the simple ability to keep up with current times.
The left is completely collapsing before our eyes – and boy are they going down UUUUGLEEE.
Update: Ed Morrissey labels Attackwatch – ‘petty’. I think he is being too kind.
