When the party of goblins, goobers, ghouls and glurps planned to get together in Denver, my expectations were high that it would be a fairly staid affair. After all, in a year when the Democrats have a historic opportunity to make significant electoral gains, you would think they could get their acts together to pull off a convention. But after two days of observing this spectacle, I have no doubt that once again that the Party of the Nanny State is headed for another debacle, which further highlights how dysfunctional they are. It's hard to know where to begin since it is the Bonnie & Clyde of American politics that is behind much of the hijinks, but lets go over night one first.
The key moments were the arrival of Ted Kennedy for a ten minute speech followed by a softened Michelle Obama, who is finally proud to be an American. Ted arrived on stage and gave a robust speech and continued on with all the "dream will never die" crap, but it is obvious he won't be dreaming much longer, thankfully. The crowd cried as the cancer stricken Ted hit the stage, but I mourned for the loss of Mary Joe Kopechne, who he left to suffocate over a ten hour period at Chappaquiddick. Thus, he gets no sympathy from me and I hoped that his big fat head would have exploded on stage.
Of course, there is nothing the Party of Doom likes better than using sickness to exploit voter sympathies. Every year you get the litany of wheel chairs and AIDS cases showcased on stage. But with Christopher Reeve dead and buried, they have decided to take a page out of the Edward's play book and use the cancer card.
Frankly, I'm surprised the attention-loving Elizabeth Edwards didn't jump on stage and throttle Teddy and remind voters about her dead son who she never talks about or her made-up cancer diagnosis. But behind the scenes, she and her ambulance chasing husband are being shunned for the cover-up about his third rate affair with a coke whore and his bastard. Pelosi, on the other hand, made an appearance on Monday night, but she made about as much of an impression as her lackluster book sales. However, over the weekend when she deemed herself the Pope on Meet the Press, she generated a slew of ridicule when she claimed to be an ardent Catholic who had a better understanding of Church doctrine that Rome.
For several hundred years the Catholic Church has ruled that life begins at conception, but according to the worst Speaker of the House in American History, she knows better. Her comments ignited a firestorm and the San Francisco Diocese has been deluged with phone calls calling for her to be excommunicated for her heretical mandates. How dare she!! She has run the Congress into the ground and has historically low approval ratings. Now she wants to assume the role of the Pope.
I so wish that Teddy was in better health. Wouldn't it be nice if he took Nancy for a ride in his car on Cape Cod? Since that isn't going to happen, I strongly urge that we call the San Francisco Diocese and demand her excommunication. I would also like to send a shout out to the clergy who have condemned the third most liberal Senator and Plagiarist for his position on abortion. Instead of partaking in Holy Communion, Biden should go to Confession.
Michelle finished the night and picked up where Ted left off and played the disease card with respect to her father who had M.S. Another cheap stunt intended as a sympathy ploy, but she can't hide her hardened radical views from those who parse through her carefully chosen words. For the last months since her husband stole the nomination from Hillary, she has been sheltered away in the mansion that Rezko, the slum lord, financed, except to make an appearance on the View. Before that, she spent months whining on the campaign trail about how America was a mean country littered with broken souls. She complained about her student loan debts and how hard things are for the Princeton-educated South Side Girl.
Like her husband, she spent 20 years in Reverend Wright's church and she can't obfuscate her radical and anti-American past. When she practiced law, she worked at Sidley and Austin, where Bernadette Dorn, the wife of William Ayres and fellow terrorist, worked as a paralegal. Being a convicted felon, sweet Ms. Dorn wasn't allowed to practice law, but that didn't stop this supposedly elite firm from hiring such garbage. I'm sure Michelle and Bernadette collaborated over cucumber sandwiches about how they were never proud to be Americans.
As noted in Michelle's speech to the Party of Socialists, she used words that could have been plagiarized from Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals. Alinsky was a communist who wanted to overthrow the United States Government and Obambi himself used his book as training vehicle for his community organizing. Specifically, Michelle Odrama said. "Barack stood up that day," talking about a visit to Chicago neighborhoods, "and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since." He talked about “The world as it is” and “The world as it should be .." And, "All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won’t do that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be."
In Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky's book, it is written: "The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive but real allies of the Haves…The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means... The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be."
So much for the softening of Michelle. She quotes directly from a radical anti-American Communist in her speech and the MSM totally ignores it. Instead, they spend the second night telling us how unified the Democrats are as Big Momma Clinton took the stage and pretended like she was doing all she could to support the Schwarze Kennedy, while McNasty runs advertisements using her words about Obambi's remarkable inexperience. At the same time, Bill is fit to be tide and has no plans to attend Obambi's speech on Thursday. Furthermore, after all the hype, the Democrats can't find 75,000 people to fill up the stadium where the Messiah plans to address us. Why is it that the Obambi can get 200,000 Germans to pay attention to him, but in America, he can't find 75,000 Democrats to sit through one of his boring speeches that are filled with a recipe for disaster for this great country?
Bill is so angry about the way his wife has been treated that he has been running around Denver calling Obama a "Chicago thug." He also basically endorsed McNasty when he said before a group of reporters that if you have a choice between Candidate X who you agree with 100% of the time and Candidate Y who you agree with 50% of the time, but Candidate X has no ability to get things done, who are you going to vote for?
I couldn't have said it better, except I find no common ground with the Chicago thug Obambi and the horde of radicals he congregates with. His strong arm tactics are like the Nazi's. He has hired a lawyer and is trying to shut down advertisements that were put out by a 527 group about his strong relationship with William Ayers. He is calling for criminal actions if the totally truthful advertisements are not stopped. For such a brilliant lawyer, you would think he would know that extortion is illegal.
Tonight, the Plagiarist will speak and try to calm the Hillary supporters down a bit while he attacks McNasty. But I'm not sure he is going to get that far. Since the announcement that he would be Obambi's running mate, McNasty has pushed ahead of Obambi in the Gallup Poll for the first time in months. I guess America isn't so enthusiastic about Change We Can Believe In in the guise of a man who has sat in the United States Senate since 1972.
