Tom Tomorrow has completed his highly deceptive review
of the year 2008. My response is to the left.
Here are a few things that Tommikins
(whose real name is Dannikins) left out:
1. The "progressive" blogosphere's fake outrage over Hillary's perfectly justified RFK remark.
2. The prog-blog embrace of the anti-Hillary "darkened video" smear.
3. The left's repetition of every demented anti-Clinton smear ever leveled by the right-wing press during the 1990s. ("Vince Foster! Vince Foster! Vince Foster!"
4. The left's utter refusal to read Evelyn Pringle's exposes of Chicago corruption, which prove that nearly every time Blagojevich received a "pay to play" bribe, Obama -- by a strange coincidence
-- got money too.
5. The prog-bloggers descent into sub-Limbaugh depths in order to smear Sarah Palin, her daughter and her baby.
6. Lefties wearing "Sarah Palin is a CUNT" t-shirts. (And yeah, Obama did
call her a "pig." He really is
that trashy, thuggish and low.)
7. Obama's NAFTA lie. (For more info, click on ad at top right.)
8. Obama's "funny money" campaign funding.
9. The non-stop insults directed against the Clinton voters ("Get out of the party!") which led to widespread disaffection and the PUMA movement -- which, in turn, would
have led to an Obama defeat, had the economic meltdown occurred a month later. Even so, Obama received only 52%
in a year that should
have resulted in a landslide win.
10. Obama's choice of (mostly) libertarian economic advisers to get us out of our current mess. Goolsbee? Volcker? Summers? Oh, these guys are poised to make a fine
mess of it.
Younger folk may need some explanation of the cartoon seen above.
In the year 2000, Tom Tomorrow -- addled by Clinton Derangement Syndrome and addicted to the lies then being told about Al Gore -- supported Ralph Nader for president. At the time, Tom did a disingenuous riff in which he argued that a mere cartoon strip could not possibly affect the outcome.
And what was that outcome? It all came down to Florida, where these were the numbers:Number of people who voted for Ralph Nader in Florida in 2000: 97,421Official difference between the Bush vote and the Gore vote in 2000: 537.
537 is roughly one-two hundredth of 97,421. I believe that at least 1/200th of the Florida Nader vote was swayable. If leading progressives such as Bill Maher, Michael Moore and Tom Tomorrow had not spread lies about Al Gore, Bush and Cheney would never have had the chance to destroy the United States.
Yes, I really do believe that Sparky could have made a difference. I think that Maher, Moore, Tom and all the other "progressive" Gore/Clinton haters are personally responsible for everything that has happened over the past eight years. They are every bit as responsible as Bush and Cheney are.
(And perhaps we should consult the shade of Boss Tweed on the question of whether cartoons can affect the way people vote.)
So much for Sparky the Penguin's record as a political consultant.
I maintain that Barack Obama was never a true liberal; he merely plays one on TV. His Mao-like cult of personality was created by "progressive" bloggers such as Arianna Huffington and Markos Moulitsas -- who are actually libertarians
. I maintain that the day will come, and will come soon
, when Democrats will regret dissing the Clinton wing of the party. I predict that Barack Obama will one day be seen as the worst thing ever to happen to the Democratic party.
In 2012, match my record against Sparky's 2000 record. I can't possibly be worse
