No White House For She Who Must Not Be Named

Posted by Mike on June 3, 2008

It isn’t really news since the race for the Democrat nomination has been over for a while now, but tonight it is official. She Who Must Not Be Named has been defeated. Barack Obama has the delegates necessary to win the Democrat nomination and will face John McCain in November.

Although it did not unfold the way we thought it would, the outcome is good news inasmuch as it is what good people all across the fruited plain have been praying for. She Who Must Not Be Named has been defeated and will not be elected to the Presidency this year. This glorious news is probably causing celebrations like this one, minus the John Edwards-looking lollipop people of course, to pop up all over the county:

SWMNBN’s loss is understandably causing many people to believe that her political career is dead. Codswallop in my opinion. I don’t know her ambition had enough human in it to die.

Hagrid reference aside, the bad news is that witch will return. She is already angling to be Obama’s running mate, something Obama should not even consider.  I know why he shouldn’t and so do you so I’ll just leave it at that.  The more likely scenario is that SWMNBN will endorse Obama and then do everything in her power to undermine the Democrat from behind the scenes so she can run again in 2012.

What’s also bad news is the fact that Obama would be a far worse as Commander in Chief than SWMNBN. SWMNBN is at least unprincipled enough to consider political reality when making decisions. This approach would lead to correct decisions at least once in a while. Obama on the other hand, is strongly committed to his Marxist worldview that underestimates the abilities of the American people and overestimates the good intentions of madmen abroad that would do our country harm.  As awful as SWMNBN would be as President, Obama would be worse.

The campaign begins tonight and I never thought I’d say this, but I pray that John McCain becomes the next President of the United States.

John Edwards Boldly Endorses Obama

Posted by Mike on May 14, 2008

Not that we needed any more proof that the race for the Democrat Party nomination is over, but if this doesn’t scare She Who Must Not Be Named’s death eaters into thinking that she can’t win this year, then nothing will. For months now, Democrats have wondered which candidate John Edwards would endorse despite the fact the answer was obvious. He was waiting for the race to be over in name only, so he could endorse whoever won; and now he has.

Cuntry Roads: She Who Must Not Be Named Wins West Virginia Primary

Posted by Mike on May 13, 2008

She Who Must Not Be Named won tonight’s West Virginia Democrat Primary by a landslide. Despite tonight’s lopsided result, little has changed in the race for the other party’s nomination. As was the case before tonight, the primary is essentially over. I mean, she was singing months ago. (I wonder if Barack Obama could name that tune?)

Tonight’s victory actually sheds more light on media bias than it does on the Democrat horse race. Just a few days ago, AFP “reported” on the “fractured” state of the Republican Party, citing primary results showing approximately 25% of Republicans voting for candidates other than McCain as evidence. But that actually begs the question doesn’t it.

If the presumptive Republican candidate winning primaries with 75% of the vote is evidence of a fractured GOP, what does it say about AFP’s favorite party if their presumptive nominee is actually losing primaries even though their race is over? And keep in mind that not only is the Empty Suit still losing primaries despite being the obvious nominee, as of this moment, he’s losing tonight’s primary by the slim margin of 37 points! Yet somehow the narrative is that the GOP is divided. Nice try AFP.

SNL Makes The Case For She Who Must Not Be Named

Posted by Mike on May 11, 2008

I think it’s a sad day for She Who Must Not Be Named when two of the three SNL spoof’s arguments for her to stay in the race are accurate. It’s a funny day for us however.

One Day Only: A Pro-Catholic Media

Posted by Mike on May 6, 2008

Well, since the issue is a Voter ID law making it harder for Democrats to cheat by forcing voters to prove they are who they say they are, for today only the AP has decided that Catholic nuns are to be viewed as sympathetic figures who should be respected.  I’ll keep that in mind the next time the AP decides to cover what Catholic nuns have to say on the issues of abortion and gay marriage.

Use The Farce

Posted by Mike on May 3, 2008

I’m not one of those people who laugh at every video invoking Star Wars, but this one is pretty good.  Obama might not be Luke, but Operation Chaos/Uncivil War fans will probably like it.  Enjoy.

She Who Must Not Be Named Wins Pennsylvania Primary

Posted by Mike on April 22, 2008

We don’t know her margin of victory; we don’t know how many delegates she will win; but we do know that She Who Must Not Be Named has won the Pennsylvania primary. The Democrat primary will continue and Operation Chaos continues.

Many conservatives are happy about tonight’s result precisely because of the chaos it is causing. I understand this point of view because I’m also enjoying it. However, we need to remember the big picture. Every day Operation Chaos continues is another day SWMNBN’s political career survives. Not only that, the closer this primary becomes, the stronger her case for 2012 becomes.

Let’s face it, Barack Obama has an uphill climb in November, and 2012 is the witch’s last shot. Keeping her in the game now keeps her in the game for 2012. Let’s be careful what we wish for.

UPDATE (10:19 P.M.) At this point, she is up by 8 points. The worst she can do tonight is to win Pennsylvania, comfortably.
