No Water for The Witch as Some Republicans Play With Fire
Posted by Mike on March 4, 2008
Earlier tonight, I had a discussion with Salinger in which he informed me that a conservative we both (and many of you) know and respect actually cast a ballot for She Who Must Not Be Named. I know Rush Limbaugh and other influential conservative suggested that Republicans do just that, and I know that the Democrat infighting that a close race provides will be crazy delicious. But good God people, this is SWMNBN!
In our discussion, Salinger wondered how it is even physically possible for a good conservative to pull the lever, punch the hole, or complete the arrow next to her name without vomiting on the spot. I still haven’t haven’t figured out the answer to that one.
My first thought upon hearing this was regret. Tonight was the night we could have stood by and watched as Obama poured water on the witch and it now it looks like she will live to fight another day. If SWMNBN comes from behind, wins the nomination and then the White House, those good conservatives who voted for her today are going to feel awfully guilty when they realize the price of their short-term schadenfreude.At this point, SWMNBN has won Rhode Island (the Riddle Family Graveyard of American Politics) and Ohio. She has also been gaining all night in Texas.
Don’t get me wrong, Obama still has the inside track and I will enjoy the Uncivil War as much any conservative. However, we had better hope that SWMNBN ultimately loses this thing because I don’t want to hear a never-ending Lazarus narrative until November. In fact, I don’t want to hear her period.
If you don’t think this scenario is possible, take note of Rush Limbaugh’s latest Pearl of Wisdom regarding a certain family (the first line says it all).
