Them vs Us

“If anyone doubts that there is a God — and that He has a sense of humor — the Wisconsin State Motto is, yep, ‘Forward.’  You can’t make this stuff up.” — C. Edmund Wright (Big Labor’s Big Boo-Boo, via The American Thinker)

One thing Tuesday’s Wisconsin recall proved is that no blow is ever powerful enough to knock sense into a leftist.  The election of Scott Brown in formerly true blue Massachusetts, the historic rout of the Dems in the 2010 midterms, and now  — a clean and resounding G.O.P. electoral victory in a supposedly reliable Democratic redoubt. After a barrage of body shots like that, it’s a miracle that any portsiders are still standing.  Yet pundits like MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell continue to offer their preposterous commentaries, leading us to wonder if they were watching the same scrap as everybody else:

“President Obama was the big winner tonight…”

By O’Donnell’s demented criteria, Waterloo should have provided a huge boost to the career of Napoleon, and the Battle of Gettysburg should have sealed the deal for Jefferson Davis and the old Confederacy.  But at least Larry hasn’t yet threatened bloody murder, like many others on the increasingly unhinged Left:

The Milwaukee Police Department said Wednesday it’s evaluating death threats made against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Twitter following the governor’s recall election victory. Political tensions in Wisconsin came to a fever pitch Tuesday night as the election results were announced. Multiple death threats surfaced on Twitter throughout the evening and into the morning. They were posted on the curation site

Speaking of unhinged, the always entertaining Gyro Gearloose of the Internet, the man whose personal Inconvenient Truth is that his own carbon “footprint” is bigger than a herd of overfed Sasquatch, the one and only Albert A. Gore Jr., appearing on his own television network as the ‘guest’ of former Empire State Democratic governor and serial whoremonger Eliot Spitzer, said of the recall:

“Well, I hope that we can get away from divisiveness, but as Billy Joel sang, we didn’t start the fire. The actions of Governor Walker in pursuing a very extreme, hard-right-wing divisive agenda really set the stage for this.”

Junior hasn’t been right about much in his 64 years, but this particular fish story was a whopper even for him. What Walker’s “hard-right-wing divisive agenda” “set the stage” for in Wisconsin, of course, was an emphatic repudiation by the voters of just about everything in which Gore and the socialists believe.  And if it wasn’t Al and his arrogant, self-righteous pals who “started the fire”, who was it? I suppose it was George W. Bush.  It always is.

Or maybe not.  Maybe we’re just getting ready to rumble. That’s what Keith Poole of the University of California thinks.  His research indicates that:

[…] the partisan divide in Congress has accelerated in recent years and is worse than at any time since the end of the Civil War ... Increasing numbers of Americans simply do not get along politically and would rather fight than compromise.

With all due respect to Professor Poole, it’s been the past 50 years of mostly unrelenting accommodation with the architects of big government that has finally fractured the post-war American polity. Because for the socialists and globalists that infest the labyrinthine corridors of power, no conservative concession ever satisfies, and no conservative compromise is ever enough.  A line had to be drawn sometime, somewhere, and it appears to have been scratched in the sand of Wisconsin.

    I’m still laughing at the irony of Wisconsin’s motto “Forward”.

    • Bob Mack says:

      From Politico. Sounds as if the Big Red One has been on so many late night talk shows that he’s starting to talk like the hosts. Or maybe it’s just the kind of thing expected in La-La Land. Whatever, one thing’s sure. It’s not appropriate for a president in a public setting — even on the Left Coast.

      President Obama, in Los Angeles for a fundraiser, offered this observation on his wife’s exercise routine, via the pool report:

      “Michelle outdoes me in pushups as well,” he said, after saying that she’s taken some criticism on her technique “because she doesn’t go all the way down” – a line that he let hang, naughtily, provoking laughter from the crowd.

      The American Thinker has more: Did Obama tell a dirty joke at gay fundraiser?

      • Freedom, by the way says:

        The man is not fit to be president. (pun intended).

        But it’s little wonder that Hollywood is so enamoured. As a whole, they are all about facades and glitter.

      • Sherry says:

        If I were Michelle, he’d get decked for saying that. He should have been booed. That audience showed disrespect for the “FLOTUS.” Or maybe they just thought she was the first lesbian FLOTUS…

  2. Bob Mack says:

    We’ve been saying all along that Obama’s a socialist … or maybe even a full-blown Red. And now, the proof is in. From National Review:

    Obama’s Third-Party History: New documents shed new light on his ties to a leftist party in the 1990s.

    On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.

    In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a “crackpot smear.” Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that “Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party.” I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.

    Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.

    Minutes of the meeting on January 11, 1996, of the New Party’s Chicago chapter read as follows:

    “Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.”

    Consistent with this, a roster of the Chicago chapter of the New Party from early 1997 lists Obama as a member, with January 11, 1996, indicated as the date he joined…

  3. Obummer sure knows how to pick his friends, doesn’t he?

    • Bob Mack says:

      And this comes on the heels of the MSM beginning to troll their pre-election bobbers about how Obama’s “not really a socialist … oh, no. Just ask any real socialist” (like anybody in the Congressional Progressive Caucus?) “and they’ll tell you he’s not…” Media flacks just continue to discredit themselves, don’t they? Like CBS head Moonves, who admitted (at an LA gay fundraiser for Obama) “ultimately journalism has changed … partisanship is very much a part of journalism now.” (President Obama gets enthusiastic welcome at L.A. gay event)

      As if we didn’t know that already.

  6. Love the drawing of Al Boor. Yours?

    • Bob Mack says:

      I plead guilty, MARTIN. I used a photo of an Algore derangement sequence as a base, then did my defacing with a Wacom pen/tablet, liquify and tilt tools, then ran it through a few filters to give it that MAD Magazine aura that fits the leftists so well.

  8. Bob Mack ( really, it is !) says:

    Hi Bob…..well, as I see it, the time is drawing nigh for all of us to yield to the all-pervasive butchering of our English language. By this, I mean we are gradually allowing our country to become: THE “UNTIED” STATES of AMERICA. (I’m tired now….somebody SPELL me) !!!

  9. Bob Mack ( really, it is !) says:

    Is Barry Sotelo “left”-handed or UNDER-handed ? Just wondering…..ohhhhh, nevermind. He’s BOTH.

  10. Bob Mack ( really, it is !) says:

    Have you seen these ubiquitous mailings recently, sent out by either the NAACP or some so-called private entity that provide forms for ANYONE to register to vote ? My wife got one in the mail yesterday, stating that their records indicate her eligibility to vote in the coming November 2012 presidential election. SHE’S A CANADIAN CITIZEN ! Oh, but……apparently being a U.S. citizen is irrelevant in our modern-day political arena, right ? There’s also a story from Virginia wherein a man’s DEAD DOG got one of these Voter Registration forms. Why am I not surprised. These groups cater to minorities and young voters. So, take heart….in less than a year we’ll be governed by youthful, “tweet-talking” illiterates and dogs instead of older smooth-talking heads and RATS. (I hear the weather in Canada is nice this time of year).

    • Bob Mack says:

      Howdy, BOB. I’m not talking to myself here, am I? I saw the dead dog story. It’s the first time in history that a dog was urged to vote for a Jackass.
