A more sour view

Posted by Richard on November 5, 2008

Not everyone is feeling gracious, magnanimous, and conciliatory. For instance, there's John Derbyshire:

All right, I'm sour. The most liberal member of the U.S. Senate! And that shakedown-artist of a wife, with the permanent frown! And Joe Biden! …

I'm sour about the GOP too. What did it all get us, those 8 years of pandering and spending? If GWB had turned his face against from new entitlements, closed the borders, deported the illegals, held the line on calls to loosen mortgage-lending standards, starved the Department of Education, and declined those invitations to mosque functions, would the GOP be in any worse shape now?

What won this election was the packaging skills of David Axelrod, the swooning complicity of the media, the ruthless opportunism of Barack Obama, and the unprincipled thuggishness of his supporters.

What lost this election was the cloth-eared cluelessness of George W. Bush, the timid squeamishness of John McCain, and the deep lack of interest in conservative principles among Republican primary voters.

Sour? You bet I'm sour. Where was conservatism in this election? Where was restraint in government? Where was national sovereignty? Where was liberty? Where was self-support? And where are those things now? Where are they headed this next four years? Down the toilet, that's where. Pah!

Funny thing: I can relate to Derbyshire's bitterness, while at the same time sharing the magnanimous thoughts and good feelings of Potemra and Goldberg. I guess I'm experiencing a mixture of happiness (about the historical significance) and dread (about what the future holds).

I know one thing: the next gun show will be crowded.

    I confess to a feeling of relief that at least the election is over. That is the extent of the positives.

    The Pollyanna in me would like to believe that Obama cannot possibly be worse than Jimmy Carter, whom the republic was strong enough to survive. Then a different voice says, “Yes — he— CAN!”

    Over the past several months I had noted a severe decline in the quality and frequency of your vitriol and acrimony towards Obama. I also noticed the increase in the number of guest Barack Bashers you had been importing. I chalked this up to pressure sickness or sun seizure of the brain or Indian gambling or one of those other Colorado illnesses. Now I have read your most recent column and I have penetrated to dark secret.

    You secretly like Obama.

    I don’t know what won you over. His brillant smile. His soft eyes. The fact that he seems to think at a high school level. But something has dammed your wrathful flood.

    Personally I thing that its that schizophrenic Teutonic psyche. Your people labor under the weight of hundreds of years of oppression of Austrian Blacks. Your nations horrible secret has been kept closely veiled, but I have dug into your past, and know the guilty burden you bear.

    Like the maypole of Harlemburg and the salting of Salzburg. These stains cannot be washed away.

    And in a fit of anti-Brady Bunch syndrome you went in the booth and flipped the switch for the Socialist black guy.

    You’ve probably blotted it from your mind. Along with the pitiful drubbing UT endured at South Carolina. But I know that your virtues triumphed over your baser instincts, even if only through a haze of self-induced amnesia.

    No. No. No need to deny it. You’ve done your part to rehabilitate the racial burden of guilt so long endured by you people.

    I remember at the end of the war, or a few months after, the ringing question. “Where are the black Austrians?” And only silence answered back.

    Some said they had gone to a disco in Munich, but no one could ever quite remember which one.

    Dr Atomic, you’re channeling Hunter S. Thompson again.

    As your non-attorney, I recommend the oxycontin.
