BACK TO REALITY

Give it to elephants -- the mammals in the Proboscidea order, not the Republican logo. Their legendary memories may be so much bilge water, but some of them can paint, and they certainly seem to have a better recall of history than many humans, especially the far-left bipedals who claim to be liberal.

Currently awash in its crush on Sen. Barack Obama, the left wing of the Democratic Party seems happy to piss away any chance at regaining the White House in November.

Liberal Dems are acting as if Obama is beyond politics and able to create his own reality -- one unmarred by his lightweight bowling skills and wispy credentials. In doing so they sound like the "senior adviser" (read: Karl Rove) to President Bush, who told writer Ron Suskind in 2004 that reality is highly overrated:
"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors .. and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
In that vein, many liberals are ignoring Obama's political flaws and focusing instead on a laughable argument -- that Clinton hasn't been vetted by the national media.

Delusions. Mad delusions. So foolish to be touching, almost. But they're uttered by some of the same liberals who blissed out in the 1990s, content with peace and prosperity, and disgusted by the non-stop media vetting of the family in the White House.

Today their minds are turgid with Obama lust, with no room for history. For them there is no need to remember the 1972 election, when outsider George McGovern claimed grassroots support to defeat the establishment Democrats and seize the nomination. McGovern went on to lose 49 states. The Democratic Party seems hellbent on ignoring its past, both good and bad. Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory. Selah.

If Hillary Clinton hasn't been vetted then Barney Frank's not gay.

Harry Reid says this whole thing will be over soon, but those thoughts are those of a fool. Hillary Clinton will take this scrap all the way to Denver.

But not to fret, McCain is a Republican in name only. No matter who wins the Democratic nomination, you'll have a choice between the lesser of two liberals.

Your post could not be more misguided and off the mark. I am surprised by your wrong turn on this one.

It is the Clinton politics as usual crowd that is destroying voters best hope to take back their government and reestablish government that works for people of all income levels. Clearly defeated in the election Hillary and Bill continue to act like spoiled brats (elitists?) who can't believe that the rest of us have finaaly seen through their roadshow of political spin without substance. When the spinning stops the Clintons really just act like Republicans-- they just try to out Republican them by getting closer to the lobbyists then the Republicans. By doing so they get to use the lobbyist money to get elected but then can't act like Democrats after elected because they are too much indebted to lobbyists.

If Hillary gets elected we will get more of the same Washington politics. The lobbyists and Washington isiders will still run the show. Obama and his supporters are fighting for real change and new way.

After Hillary do you suggest we nominate Chelsea or does Jeb Bush first get a term or two?

Time for real change -- right now.

I voted for Obama a couple of months ago, and I like him as a candidate. Yet I understand the questions surrounding them and I certainly have my concerns.

But my question is: Is Hillary a better choice?? No way in hell. It's maybe lose-maybe win with Obama; definitely lose with Clinton. She's a lost cause who should just go away. I want to vote the Dem this fall, but I will not vote for her under any circumstance. F nepotism.

Yep, predicted comments like those two - however misguided - as well.

Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Looks like that nutty McCain may be the winner.

What's wrong Anon 8:05, isn't John McCain liberal enough for you?

Stop and think about it. McCain head shot the First Amendment with Campaign Finance Reform. He didn't give a hoot in hell about America when he sided with Kennedy to open the borders, give amnesty to illegals. He helped do his part to stall votes on the Senate floor with Bush court nominees.

He believes in the Global Warming fairy. And he even wants America to sign the Kyoto accord.

My God, aside from being for bigger government, health care, higher taxes, income redistribution, free college and being anti big oil, what's the damned difference?

McCain votes against a womans right to make health care decisions about her own body-that is only one of the things wrong with him.

And he's really old.

And just for the record, I couldn't care less who wins (even if I have a 'first choice'). Who wins this election won't matter more than a hill o' beans in the grand scheme of things. Personally, it only serves as political entertainment.

Btw, I'm the REAL anon 8:05. Sometimes people answer for me! On most posts, if I don't reply with some sarcasm, it's not me! :)

rd, you elitist you, you sound bitter. maybe a shot of crown royal with a brewski chaser will sweeten you up a touch.

Didn't people make the argument when Gore-Bush were running that it didn't matter which one we chose? That it would all be the same?

I think we've proven that theory wrong. Dead freaking wrong. Gore would not have invaded Iraq. Philosophy does matter, children. It matters a heck of a lot even if the masses don't see it or understand it.

No, I don't recall that argument, although I can see its relevance.

Fifty years from now it won't matter; 100 years from now it won't matter; certainly, 1,000 years from now it won't matter. We are but a pinhead on the continuum that is life. We only think this is the most important time ever - and that we are the most qualified to direct the fate of the world.

Not possible and delusional.

This is the most important time ever...because it is happening right now. What doesn't matter is what people think about it in 50, 100 or 1000 years from now. It may just be a pinhead of time...but we don't have to be pinheads and not care...the choices we make do matter...The choices FDR and Churchill and Hitler made still matter. The choices of Washington, Jefferson and those guys still matter. What about Jesus and those dudes. Obviously people still give a rats ass about their choices. Don't sell youself short...or at least don't sell the rest of us short.
