Obama exploits liberal denial

By now, we should expect the soft Left (and more than a few radicals) to gleefully guzzle the Democrat Kool Aid every four years. In 2004, it was Anybody-But-Bush. This year, it was Attack of the Obamatrons.

Hey, when you�re a liberal, harboring multiple delusions comes with the territory, e.g.:

  • Sooner or later, the Democratic Party is gonna wake up and help us �take back� the country.

  • No matter what we think of war, we must always support the troops because sooner or later, the men and women in uniform are gonna wake up and help us �take back� the country.

  • There�s a mysterious mass of Americans out there -- just sitting on the proverbial fence as they wait for us to convince them we are right so they can wake up and help us �take back� the country.
  • There was once a time when the people actually �had� the country.

During presidential election years, of course, the most contemptible liberal lie is this: We shouldn�t vote for the third party candidates who actually represent our deeply held values because (drum roll please) they can�t win. It should be obvious that the only reason a third party candidate �can�t win� is because almost everyone who claims to be progressive votes for a Democrat instead.

This self-fulfilling prophecy comes courtesy of the same folks who apparently believe that marching with giant puppets might help end a war.

The same folks who apparently believe that holding a candlelight vigil might help end hate crimes.

The same folks who apparently believe that a giant rock concert might help end global warming.

The same folks who apparently believe that adhering to state sanctioned free speech zones is a legitimate method of expressing dissent.

I could go on but I�d rather ask this simple question: Why is anyone still trusting the entrenched Left on anything? Thanks to their archaic tactics and dogma, we now face four years of genuflecting before the Pope of Hope as he blatantly spits on every effort toward peace, justice, and solidarity.

It�s gotten to the point where I wouldn�t be surprised if Lord Obama announced that he�s decided to keep Dick Cheney on as vice president . . . you know, in the name of bipartisanship and all. What would be most amusing is how quickly 90 percent of those on the Left would find a way to justify it (and call me �cynical� for not being stoked).

To paraphrase a certain Mr. Diderot, the planet will never be free (or detoxified) until the last politician is strangled with the entrails of the last liberal.
