“Half of the American people have never read a newspaper. Half never voted for President. One hopes it is the same half.”

It may be time for the tin-foil hats, but I’ve been wondering for some months how and why John McCain came to be the Presidential candidate for the Republican Party. A year ago, the McCain campaign was low on funds, and he had some stiff competition from younger men with less baggage (i.e. S&L scandal, support for amnesty for illegal immigrants, years of bizarre behavior and flip-flopping on the issues, general signs of insanity, etc.). After the first three or four primary votes, McCain was trailing in the vote, trailing in the delegate count, trailing in the polls, and denying rumors that his campaign was bankrupt.

What becomes of America, now that Obama has usurped the presidency? Clearly, if Obama has his way, we will be attempting to retry the failed experiment of the former Soviet Union, with Obama playing the role of Premier Comrade. If his goals are evidenced by his utterances, he plans to destroy the U.S. by making our well-being and security secondary to his anti-coal ideology, he plans to institutionalize corruption in government by making millions of citizens and non-citizens dependent on and beholding to the government for money, and he plans to fundamentally destroy the remains of our once-fair republic by throwing off the Constitutional limits in favor of a mandate for government to provide food, housing, jobs, iPods, diplomas, bling, and who-knows-what-else to everyone in the deserving class (as if our current “limited” government wasn’t already big enough). If he’s successful, there will be no more America by the end of his term.

I can understand not wanting to vote for John McCain — he’s a deeply flawed (and possibly insane) individual. However, this doesn’t explain the cult-like fervor of Obama supporters.

The instantaneous hatred, fear, and loathing on the Left for Sarah Palin — or Palin Derangement Syndrome — mystifies me. I was talking with a “lifelong” feminist the other day, and she expressed the sentiment that we had to vote for Obama because if McCain became President and died, then Palin would be President. Her tone was one of horror.

You gotta love Hillary Clinton’s charges of plagiarism against Barack Obama. For a couple of weeks now, it’s become clear to me that she’s upset that, having no substance herself or in her campaign, she’s run into an opponent with even less substance, who’s more successful.

Over the years, we have referred to many personages of note by using first, middle, and last names, while the rest of us plod along with only first and last. As far as I can remember, outside of Mel Gibson’s movie, “Conspiracy Theory,” few have commented on this. Neither can I remember anyone commenting on the significance of the middle name, when it is the same as some other famous person. For example, I don’t remember anyone remarking on the irony that William Jefferson Clinton was not very much like Thomas Jefferson, or urging Clinton to act more like Jefferson because of his middle name.

Today’s paper reports that Barack Obama “announced his bid for president Saturday, a black man evoking Abraham Lincoln’s ability to unite a nation.” I don’t know which is more frightening: That the AP reporters and editors who produced this story are insane, or Obama is and no one else has yet noticed it.
