vast liberal hypocrisy
I've spent a lot of time trying to determine if there is any way I could take pleasure in a Kerry victory.
Obviously, four years of the First Bovine (Teresa Heinz Kerry) would provide much fodder for comedy. But I wanted something more significant. Something that would expose the vast liberal hypocrisy.
Fortunately after about 6 months of thinking -- I've found one --
if Bush were to win the popular vote, but lose in the electoral college. This has become a distinct possibility thanks to Dems registering the likes of Mary Poppins and dead folks in battleground states.
Why in baby Jesus' name would I enjoy a Bush loss in the electoral college? For the same reason every other intelligent person (conservative) would....
While most on the right are more mature than our liberal counterparts, I for one will take great pride in reminding them, as they celebrate, that four years ago they were completely against the electoral college.
Remember? It was outdated.
Remember who threw tantrums because a dead baby channeled his thoughts to John Edward's bloodless heart and said the President should be the man who gets the majority of the votes.
Remember how simple that was to the simple mind?
Oh how sweet that would be to remind them.
Sweet. But not sweet enough to make we actually want such a thing. I like the irony pointed out by the fact that all of the Iraqi elites, educators, professors, lawyers, judges, and social scientists support a Bush victory. Now, that's sweet.

Please Moxie ... take it back! It's like wishing for a hand grenade to go off while you are holding it just to kill 20 terrorists ... wait, ok. Now I understand. Thnx.

I'm not usually one for bumperstickers and the like but if there IS so vile a thing as a Kerry administration in the offing, I will design, print and make available, by Christmas, a retro-fitting of an old lefty trope...
"Don't blame me... I voted for BUSH!"
I think they'll like it. Yes, I do.

Didn't Clinton lose the popular vote in 1996?

Never mind. I am an idiot. I stated something without knowing the facts brand me an idiot, but don't brand me a liberal yet.

"Iraqi elites, educators, professors, lawyers, judges, and social scientists support a Bush victory"...is that akin to Bush's base? The have mores?
What about the regular Iraqis? Huh?

Kerry also keeps saying that he can do Bush's policies better than Bush, and part of me wants to see what happens if he's in the White House. It's easy to criticize but a whole other thing to carry out a plan...whatever his plan is.

The silver lining in a Kerry presidency is that his administration will be such a disaster that Americans won't vote for another generation will pass before Americans will vote in another Democratic president. His tax increases will send the teetering economy into a tailspin. While his failures in Iraq will be blamed on Bush's mistakes, the next terror attack will happen on his watch, and Kerry won't have the excuse that it was unexpected. His endless dithering in the wake of the attack will expose him for the empty suit he is.

Oops. That first sentence should read, "The silver lining in a Kerry presidency is that his administration will be such a disaster that another generation will pass before Americans will vote in another Democratic president."

Whistling past the graveyard …
FutureTense: The silver lining in a Kerry presidency is that his administration will be such a disaster that another generation will pass before Americans will vote in another Democratic president.
Actually this should read …
The “silver lining” in a Kerry presidency is that his administration will be such a disaster that the United States will collapse into Anarchy, and generations will pass before Americans will (again) have the right to vote in another Democratic election.
FutureTense: His tax increases will send the teetering economy into a tailspin. While his failures in Iraq will be blamed on Bush's mistakes, the next terror attack will happen on his watch, and Kerry won't have the excuse that it was unexpected.

He’s already been exposed as an empty suit over and over again.
The problem is a substantial portion of the population is more concerned with perceiving their fantasies then they are with perceiving the cold, hard reality.

If Kerry wins, this link will sum up my mood.......
If Kerry wins, the media is gonna pull a 180 degree turn-around and go on the defensive for his administration. They'll try to manipulate the masses by reporting more good news for Kerry while downplaying his failures and blaming them on conservative politicians. The media will try to groom him for a landslide re-election in '08.
I hope my man wins, but if he doesn't at least I can have hope that the people will snap out of their trance like they did during the Carter administration........resulting in another 12 years without liberals in charge.
Here's some more link spam to commemorate Bush's reign......
For those interested, the previous link was originally made from a poorly translated(from Japanese) Sega Genesis game......
If Bush wins, this would be my victory slogan to the liberals of the world.......
DISCLAIMER: Don't go to this link with your speakers loud or you might get in trouble if you are at work amongst co-workers......

If a reverse-2000 did happen, what are the odds that the Dems and their Media pals will find the electoral college to be "the great defender of liberty". They are such two-faced liars, it would not take 10 seconds for them to change their position 180 degrees.

The price of the lesson would be too high.

kjo: They [Liberals/Atheists] are such two-faced liars, it would not take 10 seconds for them to change their position 180 degrees.
Liberals/Atheists are not exactly known for their powers of logical consistency (or parsimony for that matter).
Logical Consistency is directly opposed to the Liberal/Atheist/("Secularist") devout belief in the fundamental "random" and magical (meaningless) nature of (subjective/non-logical) reality.

Please don't misconstrue me: I'm not arguing in favor of a Kerry presidency. I'm just looking for the silver lining in a very dark, very large storm cloud. I think that Kerry would be another Carter, and hopefully will usher in a new Reagan -- hopefully one who doesn't toss aside the limited-government argument, as Bush so foolishly did, in vain pursuit of a "compassionate conservative" agenda. 500 billion for Medicare drug benefits, and what has he got to show for it? He's probably still going to lose Florida. When it comes to social spending, Republicans ought never to get in a bidding war with Democrats; the Dems will gladly always outspend them.

Serpent -- And I thought it was Bush who didn't live in a "reality-based environment" (or however that fabricated quote went in the NYT). ;)

I suppose the 'good' thing that would come from a Kerry win would be my grandparents living in a Republican area of California will be spared more Islamic attacks, while us Texans can finally meet this declaration of war on our state with the full force of our population. You want to see a group of people with unbelievable resolve and ability to 'get r done' have OBL detonate a bomb here in the lone star state.
