The Obamaclypse is Upon Us!
Spooky secondary effects of an election apparently leaning toward the Democrats! Mark Levin's head literally explodes!

The following pull is almost randomly selected from the gusher of a single run-on graf of stream-of-consciousness word spew. It's lucky this election is coming very soon, if only to preserve whatever sanity is left among the right-wing punditariat. Good golly.


Excerpted from The Obama Temptation:
Charles Gibson and Katie Couric sought to humiliate Palin. They would never and have never tried such an approach with Obama. But beyond the elites and the media, my greatest concern is whether this election will show a majority of the voters susceptible to the appeal of a charismatic demagogue. This may seem a harsh term to some, and no doubt will to Obama supporters, but it is a perfectly appropriate characterization. Obama's entire campaign is built on class warfare and human envy. The "change" he peddles is not new. We've seen it before. It is change that diminishes individual liberty for the soft authoritarianism of socialism. It is a populist appeal that disguises government mandated wealth redistribution as tax cuts for the middle class, falsely blames capitalism for the social policies and government corruption (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) that led to the current turmoil in our financial markets, fuels contempt for commerce and trade by stigmatizing those who run successful small and large businesses, and exploits human imperfection as a justification for a massive expansion of centralized government. Obama's appeal to the middle class is an appeal to the "the proletariat," as an infamous philosopher once described it, about which a mythology has been created.
Update: he did eventually get around to formatting that post. Fat lot of good that did to increase the coherence of the piece.

Isn't it amazing? I just posted links to some of the funnier things I've come across today, and the overwhelming majority of them have something to do with wingnuts wetting the bed.

I mean, seriously, what is so threatening about this guy?

It'd be hilarious if these ventings weren't taken so seriously by their mouth-breathing audience. But, since there's nothing we can do about that, we might as well laugh.

Indeed: half the reason I am so excited to vote for Obama is to upraise a very large middle finger at the likes of Hannity, "low-information" (read: racist) voters and Michael Savage!
