Fear of An Obama Planet
Did you ever wonder why the closer water gets to the drain the harder it swirls? It's as if it knows what's coming.
That seems to be the story on the Straight Trash Express these days. And the Commander seems to be losing his grip, referring to Obama as "that one" and treating a black man who asked a question at the recent debate as something of a low grade moron: "I'll bet you haven't heard of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac." The contempt is palpable.
Sarah Palin, self professed pitbull in lipstick has been active as well, and her rallies in Florida and other places, well stocked with fellow travelers and stage managed to a fault (because nothing happens by accident on the campaign trail), have greeted her use of Obama's name with hoots of derision, cries of treason! and in one memorable case "Kill him!"
I've usually got something smart to say but here, I'm just stunned.
Is this what the party of Lincoln became? Do these people think that this is going to win them an election?
We've got a ways to go here, but I'm calling this one. Stick a fork in the Straight Talk Express and send the pitbull back to the dog pound.
I'm a semi retired attorney and amp mechanic in central Iowa. I'm laying off the law and anything else I do not like due to my recent encounter with the Grim Reaper. Well. We passed by each other in the night and I got away clean. I moderate the posts here and I delete without comment those that attack me personally and are generally sophomoric, unlettered and play games with the truth.
This blog isn't a public toilet and you don't get to write on the walls here, people.
OUR CO-EDITOR: Darla Mondou comes to us through a fortuitous convergence of interest in ag law issues and technology-provided by those wonderful folks at Google and Blogger, who provide the forum. Darla is a graduate of the University of Arkansas School of Law and Graduate program in Agricultural Law, she hails from all over like me, and she is currently working on court appointed appeals in the federal system. It pays the bills.
