1) The defense that President Obama gets from certain segments of the blogosphere is borderline pathological. I mean, the frigging guy could throttle somebody and they'd still defend him some. "The throttleee was a racist and deserved it", they'd say. And don't get me wrong here. I actually like Obama. I voted for him and probably will again. But come on already. He a) gave a good speech at the 2004 convention, b) put a major beatdown on the idiot, Alan Keyes, c) had but a brief cup of coffee in the U.S. Senate, and d) defeated a stark raving mad lunatic, John McCain, in the 2008 Presidential race. Could there be a more fortunate individual anywhere?............2) Yes, he did defeat Hillary. I'll give him some credit for that. But I have to ask you here - how you ever seen a segment of the voting populace turn on somebody the way that the American left turned on Mrs. Clinton? I mean, my God. They frigging tossed her aside as if she was a balding snow-tire, for Christ.............3) And I definitely didn't like the way that everybody dumped on Mrs. Clinton when she didn't concede immediately. I mean, seriously, why should she have? I don't ever recall Reagan conceding immediately in 1976. And what about Mr. Teddy Kennedy? Poor Jimmy Carter had to basically chase him around the stage in 1980, just to get a frigging handshake from him. All in all, I think that Mrs. Clinton showed a fair amount of class throughout the 2008 race (her husband, no, maybe not as much). At least she did so from a historical perspective, I'm saying.............4) Have any of you folks seen that new show on Fox (News); "The Five"? It's basically Bob Beckel versus four conservatives....And talk about ineffectual here. The only way that they could make this Beckel character more ineffectual would be to have him suit up in a Washington Generals uniform. I'm serious!
