Sanity Has Left the Left

NOTE: This article is continually updated as new material presents itself. Be sure to look for new stuff or you're going to miss all the fun.

I can't decide which is more fun: having GWB 2.0 win or watching the left coming apart. I have decided to chronicle the vitriole of the liberals as they unravel.

Truthfully, these sort of tirades don't bother me in the least. Sure their going to troublesome with their demands for bipartisanship in an effort to dilute the President's agenda and they'll outright filibustering when that fails but the fact of the matter is the liberals are not soul-searching and trying to find out why they can't win. As they become more distraught they will continue to become more disconnected. For all their bellyaching that they represent "middle America" they seem totally incapable of turning any states in the middle of the map blue.

Come 2008 after an ever-improving economy, one to 3 more conservatives on the Supreme Court, a calm settling upon Iraq and perhaps a politically neutered Iran and/or Syria the liberals will be outright frothing to discredit conservative ideals. Their dialogue will be so absolutely consumed with hatred even Hillary will seem to rightist to them and their political isolation will be final.

With such musings warming the cockles of our bunny hearts I present to you


Jane Smiley at Slate: Cheney is the capitalist arm and Bush is the religious arm. They know no boundaries or rules. They are predatory and resentful, amoral, avaricious, and arrogant. Lots of Americans like and admire them because lots of Americans, even those who don't share those same qualities, don't know which end is up. Can the Democrats appeal to such voters? Do they want to? [Yes, liberals, you're too good for us. Only places like France truly deserve you. Hey, why don't you go there now!]

Paul Krugman, New York Times: "President Bush isn’t a conservative. He’s a radical — the leader of a coalition that deeply dislikes America as it is … thanks to a heavy turnout by evangelical Christians, Mr. Bush has four more years to advance that radical agenda. ... Mr. Bush did not win in a landslide. Without the fading but still potent aura of 9/11, when the nation was ready to rally around any leader, he wouldn’t have won at all." [Damn those terrorists! They got Bush re-elected...oh yeah, and they kill people too.]

Some of Michael Moore's slackers who actually got off the couch to vote and are now apologizing to the world. Notice the girl asking bin Laden not to attack her county demonstrates how leftists see Americans protecting them from terrorists as greater threats than the terrorists themselves. I dunno, maybe she would be happier in a burqa.

Over at we have: As a journalist examining that messy sausage called American democracy, it's my job to tell you who got the most votes in the deciding states. Tuesday, in Ohio and New Mexico, it was John Kerry. Most voters in Ohio thought they were voting for Kerry. CNN's exit poll showed Kerry beating Bush among Ohio women by 53 percent to 47 percent. Kerry also defeated Bush among Ohio's male voters 51 percent to 49 percent. Unless a third gender voted in Ohio, Kerry took the state. So what's going on here? Answer: the exit polls are accurate. Pollsters ask, "Who did you vote for?" Unfortunately, they don't ask the crucial, question, "Was your vote counted?" The voters don't know. [Not that anyone could fiddle with exit polls by weighting surveys by gender or urban geography.] Hat tip: Wizbang

Philidelphia Daily News tells us: Sorry, Dick Cheney, a four-million-vote margin of victory in an election in which more than 114 million votes were cast does not translate into an overwhelming mandate. Bush deserves congratulations for his victory. But congratulations, not appeasement... [New DNC slogan: Appease terrorists, not democratically elected presidents! 4 million votes, a popular majority and all of the other signs of rejection of the liberal agenda is a mandate. It's more than Clinton ever had.]

Mark Halperin of ABC's "we're going to slant the news to Kerry's favor--more" memo fame called Bush a "lame duck" a mere two minutes after the President's acceptance speech.

Web designers for CNN couldn't help inserting their profane, banal insults of the President. Photos of Mr. Bush and his wife were labelled "@$$hole.jpg." [edited for content] I wonder if anyone will be fired? Should I hold my breath?

Because the Dems can't win culturally or militarily, Richard Cohen wants America to suffer economically so the Dems can win again. He says, "From a Democratic perspective, what this country needs is a good recession. Barring that, the party needs a candidate who can be comfy talking religion and, once that's established, go on to talk about other things."

Way to root for the home team, Dick. I also find it curious that most libs despise religion as merely a tool to control the masses and thus have been so hostile to it over the years. It seems l'il Dicky Cohen has decided to break with liberal tradition...he suddenly likes control the long as its a liberal.

Helen Thomas is still in full campaign mode decrying the unending evils that shall befall America and all humanity in the second Bush term. She seems to forget that while 55 million people believe her 59 million people know better and aren't given to such hysterics. She ends her breathless panic attack, er, column with, "Since the president sees his victory as a mandate for his 'might-is-right' foreign policy and conservative domestic views, the United States will be even more isolated from the world and even more divided at home." [When exactly did Bush ever say "might is right?"]

Speaking of lost sanity, Joan Baez thinks/pretends she is a poor black girl. An attendee of a recent Baez concert reports:
However, the most remarkable and disturbing episode occurred halfway through the concert when Joan stopped singing and announced that she had "multiple personalities." One of her multiple personalities is that of a fifteen year old poor black girl named Alice from Turkey Scratch, Arkansas. Baez decided to share with us Alice's views on the election. Amazed and horrified I watched a rich, famous, extremely white folksinger perform what can only be described as bit of minstrelsy—only the painted on blackface was missing. Alice, the black teenager from Arkansas Baez was pretending to be, spoke in a dialect so broad and thick that it would put Uncle Remus and Amos and Andy to shame. Baez' monologue was filled with phrases like, "I'se g'win ta" to do this that or the other and dropping all final "g's." Baez as Alice made statements like, "de prezident, he be a racist," and "de prezident, he got a bug fer killin'." Finally, since Bush won the election with 58.7 million votes to Kerry's 55.1 million, Alice observed, "Seems lak haf' de country be plumb crazy." Since Baez was reading Alice's notes, it is evident that she thinks that Arkansas' public schools don't teach black children to write standard English.

The audience--comprised of aging white hippies--applauded. Oh my.

Maureen Dowd is always good for a laugh, "The president got re-elected by dividing the country along fault lines of fear, intolerance, ignorance and religious rule. He doesn't want to heal rifts; he wants to bring any riffraff who disagree to heel. W. ran a jihad in America so he can fight one in Iraq - drawing a devoted flock of evangelicals, or 'values voters,' as they call themselves, to the polls by opposing abortion, suffocating stem cell research and supporting a constitutional amendment against gay marriage."

NEWS FLASH: You don't win elections by getting people to buy an ideology, you win because you represent what they already believe. If Iraq, and opposition to gay marriage and stem cell research got GWB 2.0 re-elected, it's because that is what the people wanted, not because Bush made them want it. It seems Ms. Dowd is upset because Bush had the gall to give the people representative government. Ms. Dowd's conflict is not with the newly re-elected president, but with democracy and the right to choose one's leaders. Perhaps what she means is that people she disagrees with have no right to vote.

It's also interesting how the libs use words like "jihad" to characterize evangelicals. They have to borrow words from the so-called religion of peace to defame Christianity. If Christians are such a barbarous lot how come words foreign to the Christian faith have to be imported? We all know there are no Christians kidnapping people, flogging women for showing too much ankle, cutting off heads, flying planes into buildings or setting off roadside bombs--or even discussing such things accept to say such things need to be stopped. No, they vote instead. When they win they're happy. When they lose they play by the rules although they tend to get a bit testy when people lie under oath in a federal court to cover-up their adultery and sexual harrassment of innocent women.

"Let’s all head to the airport and get out of the country." --Al Sharpton. Al, far be it for me to stop you. In fact, I want to help you leave so quickly I'll even waive the normal security checks to speed you on your way. Just sit here right next to Abdul.

Terry McAuliffe, DNC Chairwarmer, er, wait, that's sexist--ChairPERSON:

“This party is stronger than it’s ever been. We’re in the best financial shape,” he says. “We now have, unlike four years ago, millions and millions of new supporters of this party. We’re debt-free for the first time ever and we’re beginning to build towards 2008.”

Yes, Terry, millions of new supports...and the President still won by 4.7 million votes. I guess Bush got millions of new supporters too, but hey you go with that rosy outlook--and don't change a thing.

A young man committed suicide at Gound Zero because of Bush's re-election. Condolences to his family for their grief, but it's nature's way of thinning the herd.

We now have a suspect as to who slashed the tires of vehicles rented by the Wisconsin GOP to help drive voters to the polls. Turns out he's the son of a Democrat who won onNovember 2nd...and he's a muzz-lim convert (Suprise! Suprise!) who goes by the ridiculous name Supreme Solar Allah (sounds like someone is compensating). Maybe I should change my name to Almighty Super Magnificent Galactic Sun Bunny.

As if they weren't violent enough before and during the election, the violence continues after the election as well:

Large rocks were thrown through the plate glass windows of Erie County Republican Committee headquarters in the Statler Towers on Thursday morning. Party officials believe the vandalism is connected to the close 27th Congressional District race between Democrat Brian M. Higgins and Republican Nancy A. Naples. Threatening phone calls had been made to party officials, according to Bradley J. Stamm, executive director for the GOP County Committee.
