Why the Liberals WILL LOSE!!!

"Stop saying that!" my wife says to me. But this is not a high school football game and I'm not a cheerleader with a bad attitude. This is an election and as things stand now, we're gonna frickin' lose this thing. Obama and McCain at best are even in the polls nationally and in a recent Gallup poll McCain is ahead by four points.

Something is not right. We have a terrific candidate and a terrific VP candidate. We're coming off the worst eight years in our country's history. Six of those eight years the Congress, White House and even the Supreme Court were controlled by the Republicans and the last two years the R's have filibustered like tantrum throwing 4-year-olds, yet we're going to elect a Republican who voted with that leadership 90% of the time and a former sportscaster who wants to teach Adam and Eve as science? That's not odd as a difference of opinion, that's logically and mathematically queer.
So what is this house advantage the Republicans have? It's the press. There is no more fourth estate. Wait, hold on...I'm not going down some esoteric path with theories on the deregulation of the media and corporate bias and CNN versus Fox...I mean it: there is no more functioning press in this country. And without a real press the corporate and religious Republicans can lie all they want and get away with it. And that's the 51% advantage.

As long as the Evil Liberals keep backing rich white elitists like Obama, they are going to loose.

Americans do not want to take the time to understand actual economics, so they will embrace what ever form of "triumphalist economics" is preached to them as the Clear Proof that God Loves us so much that he gave us our very first nuclear bomb....

So they keep hoping that one more bail out of this or that financial industry will be the majik....

Since to sober up and notice that UnRegulated Banking Firms that engaged in Banking BizNizz, uh, well, gosh, shouldn't we go back and ask about the real roots of the banking fiasco that was a part of the opening of the so called great depression.... But that way would lead to unpleasant political questions about what sorts of Religious WingNuts shoots down appropriate Banking Regulation??? And wants to have the Majik Moments of Market Fundamentalism, with the whole Tent Revivalism of Wall Street married to the Mystical Insights....

What if the real fuggly here IS that America is a Party Nation!!! as in Free Beer, not as in Free Speach.

That as long as americans want to allow themselves to be hood winked by the Snake Oil Salesmen, well, they will just keep on getting the same majik moments.... They voted their biblical literalism - and got an end to banking regulation. They voted against Abortion - and they got more deregulation of the Big Energy...

Hey KIDS - rememeber what is the matter with kansas? it was not that long ago....

Oh that is right... it is all about stopping the rich white elitists like Obama bin Biden, and the rest of the radical left wing Wall Street Types - you have to respect HanoiAnnie Coulter for that meme - and how they are all the evil ones who want to keep Dorothy and Toto trapped in the dark evils of Gay HomoZeXual Only marriages with morally degenerates, rather than allow her to get back to Kansas...

So, uh, what will it take to get americans back on a reasonable eductional track? Where there are some things that are really more important than Britany's new Fashion Crisis???
