The Humbling: “The ONE” goes to Don Clinton

So, it appears that "The One" is going begging to Don Clinton, hat in hand:The One strides in confidently and extends his hand to The Don. The Don looks up, contemplates the proffered hand, and watches The One's smile fade as it is not shaken. The One retracts his hand, and tilts his head, comprehending, but not liking it. Still, he needs this meeting.Don Clinton nods slightly, and with a silky hand motions The One to take a seat. Don Clinton's blue eyes are grave, but there is a … [Read more...]

Obama, the Trophy Wife?

The anger of Ms. Christian and her Democrat sisters has perhaps less to do with the fact that Barack Obama is an “inadequate black male” than that he is the trophy wife for whom Mrs. Clinton — and by extension, her graying, menopausal supporters — has been thrown over.A trophy wife, of course, is the younger, less shopworn, unlined, doe-eyed, and sometimes opportunistic woman some middle-aged men marry upon achieving the measure of worldly success that puts them in more “elite” company. Mixin … [Read more...]

Chesterton & Lewis warn against tyranny

G. K. Chesterton's helpful assessment of fundamental liberty. By his measure, our liberty is indeed threatened."The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog." - Broadcast talk 6-11-35Emphasis mine. Jay at STACLU has a great quote on a similar theme:“Of all tyrannies, a t … [Read more...]

Obama, Psychic duality & Race

Where charity and love are, there God is. The love of Christ has gathered us into one flock. Let us exult, and in Him be joyful. Let us fear and let us love the living God. And from a sincere heart let us love each other (and Him).As a young woman working in New York City, I watched a lovely, brilliant middle-aged black woman struggle to maintain her dignity and forbearance when she was told, by a youngish white woman who seemed to love her, that she -- the white woman -- could not … [Read more...]

Jeremiah Wright, Steinem & Primacy of Victimhood

Okay, got lots of emails from folks decrying the "racism of Barack Obama's pastor," Jeremiah Wright, in this video.I watched the video twice, and I don't know if I'm seeing racism. I think I'm seeing anger, some of it reality-based and quite justified, some of it politically expedient for emotional manipulation, and some of it just strange."Jesus was a poor black man who lived in a country and in a culture that was controlled by rich white people [Romans rich and Italian, therefore … [Read more...]

Michelle Obama is just Hillary redux

Had an interesting exchange with someone in the press today, who noted that the big kahuna of the big-time-journalism outfit which signs the paycheck is fervently pro-Hillary, and seeks "to use Michelle Obama's first time I've been proud of my country' gaffe as a stick to beat Obama with.Thus, you see, helping Hillary with her difficult February.The irony here, of course, is that Michelle Obama is the circa-'92-Hillary of this election; she is the smart, tough, ivy-league-educated, loose … [Read more...]

Obama rising, Hillary sliding

Clearly, Barack Obama has not yet peaked. He just resoundingly won Maine, and he even beat the Clintons out for a Grammy! Hey, the dude does have a great voice.It is both inspiring and a little nerve-wracking to read that he, without planning or security, gave an impromptu rally outside a Maine meeting hall, when it was too full to admit everyone: We waited in the longest line I had ever seen in my life for almost two hours...we were only a few hundred feet from the auditorium when we were … [Read more...]
