Cough Cough: The Nigger Knows Something

"If Barack Obama loses this election to John McCain – something which, for the first time, I regard as a real possibility – history will point to August 29 as the pivotal moment."

"That was when Mr McCain announced that Sarah Palin would be his running-mate, and when livid Democrats and their friends in the media voiced their feelings about her and much of the electorate, and gravely harmed their candidate’s prospects."

"For Mr McCain to win the election against the odds that faced him pre-Palin – with the economy in the tank and the incumbent Republican president setting records for unpopularity – would be sensational enough."

"For this to happen because of his vice-presidential pick, a decision that is usually of next to no consequence, beggars belief."

"The Democrats had to bring all their resources to getting themselves into this fix. They proved equal to the task."

"As I argued last week, Mr Obama’s own initial reaction to the Palin nomination was exactly right."

"All the party had to do was follow his lead. Mr Obama, in effect, would give her enough rope; her inadequacies would reveal themselves in due course; it cost nothing, in the meantime, to be courteous, and to keep pressing on the issues, where the Democrats still enjoy an advantage with most voters."

"Ms Palin’s first television interview last week, an adequate but far from stellar performance, affirmed the wisdom of that course."

"But the Democratic talking-heads had to exult in their disdain for Ms Palin and all she represents – namely, a good part of the electorate whose support Mr Obama needs."

"In the space of a few days, they irreversibly damaged Mr Obama’s candidacy and transformed this election."

"Obama will be president - in 2012."

"Not now."

"He'll get the nomination but his inexperience and, especially, his party will bring him (and them) down."

"The last 8 years of dissing America will blow up in the Dems faces and those in the middle of the country will reject them.

-- TMR in January, and being wronged repeatedly ever since, because (unlike Buddhists and other NewAgers) I'm "too hung-up on being 'right' all the time" - and/or in love with the sound of my own voice (or so I am told) as it spews its lies and exaggerations from The Macho Response.
