Obama back up to a 5 point lead nationally, ties in the key battleground states with Indiana now slightly in the Obama camp. Hmmmmm . . . .
Mind you, I don't bother to discuss this with Wussycrats. The same folks who paniced when Palin didn't puke on stage at the RNC and who began sobbing in despair and telling all the newly registered voters not to show up because the game was lost, blah blah blah all have excellent reasons why the McCain bounce last week meant we were finished but the Obama rebound doesn't really mean anything.
Perhaps, as so many people tell me, I don't understand how the world works. But I find I do live an overall happier life.
The thing I hate most about the Wussycrats is their, and I hate to say this, elitism. Their despair is based on the idea that Americans are morons. It is captured best by the statement: "Most Americans aren't ready for a black President."
When I point out that many millions of Americans, including millions of them hard-working honest etc. supposed racists have already voted for Obama, the response is "Oh, but those were Democrats."
Ah, because white Democrats have evolved some sort of special receptor in their brain that lets them accept the "black President" neurotransmitter. I wonder if it is related to the so-called "monogomy gene", which effects receptors for the "cuddle hormone" oxytocin? Perhaps that's why Democrats also favor tree-hugging and gay marriage, whereas Republicans have trouble keeping their comitments about curbing spending and want to ban gay marriage as a means of prottecting the market for anonymous bathroom hook ups.
Mind you, I will happily admit that for some people the issue of "I trust people who are visually more like me and share what appear to be my values" has a much higher threshold than for others. But human beings are a very complicated bunch, even if modern demographic groupings encourage us to think of them as single issue clones of one another. But the notion that this is a show stopper becuase "most white Americans" (unlike liberated me!) are "not ready" for a black President is -- I submit -- as idiotic as postulating that most Americans are not ready for a woman President. Becuase it didn't matter if you ran a crappy campaign that burned through money like an Internet start up in 1999 and had a staff that preferred to focus on undermining each other than on winning the election. The only reason why your candidate lost was because she was a woman.
Hmmmm....maybe the genetic connection isn't with the cuddle gene. Maybe it is with the "I refuse to take responsibility for reality" gene.
