Geraldine is right

Geraldine Ferraro is absolutely right about Obama. He would not be where he is if he were not black. HE WOULD BE THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT ALREADY!!! Does anyone believe that a white candidate who had won 14 elections out of 17, who was ahead in delegates, ahead in states won, and ahead in the overall popular vote, would not by now be picked as the candidate? If so, you must be living in the same fantasyland as George W. Bush, Jonah Goldberg, Bill Kristol, and Hillary Clinton. Clinton looks to me like she is becoming a combination of Captains Queeg and Ahab. She is slowly deteriorating before our eyes, slipping farther and farther into delusions of impossible grandeur. In her desperation she has stopped even pretending she will not stoop to the race card. Unless she repudiates Ferraro she is admitting it. I fear my admiration for her in the past has now been destroyed forever. It’s true, she’ll do and say anything to get elected, even when her chances now are less than zilch. Oh, and by the way Geraldine, “they’re” not after you because you’re white (whoever “they” are). They’re after you because you’re a stupid, white, female racist with a big mouth, apparently still living in the past. Obama won Mississippi handily largely on the strength of the black vote. I fully expect Hillary to now claim that black votes aren’t as important as white votes, just like small states aren’t as important as big states, and caucus votes aren’t as important as primary votes, and no one or party is as important as Queen Hillary.

One thing that I find upsetting, although I suppose it was predictable, is the limited number of white votes Obama received in Mississippi. He has done pretty well up to now with getting a good share of the white vote, so why not in Mississippi? Why not indeed? I fear it tells us something about racial attitudes in Mississippi that, shall we say, are not exactly the same as they are in, say, Wyoming and Idaho and other states as well. Jim Crow seems to be alive and well in Mississippi. I doubt this will keep Obama from eventually being elected President, but it certainly doesn’t help.

Admiral William Fallon, the head of the Middle East Command, has suddenly resigned. He says it was not because he opposed a war with Iran, contrary to Bush’s wishes. I guess he just wants to spend more time with his family?

Baying at the moon: The U.N. and the U.S. have told Israel to stop further illegal construction in the West Bank. They will continue. Did you expect anything different? I don’t like Ralph Nader very well. And I don’t want him to run for President again. But he is completely right about the terrible tragedy being played out in Gaza. What the Israelis are doing to the Palestinians in Gaza is absolutely unconscionable. No one seems to care, at least not enough to do anything about it. Israel is exempt from human decency?

Two astronomers have calculated that the earth will destruct in 7.59 billion years. Fair enough. But did they have to add that this should be an incentive for people to do something about leaving our planet? Nothing like planning ahead, I always say.

There has apparently been a rumor going around that Larry Grant did not knock on doors during his last campaign. People who know nothing should keep their mouths shut. Read the facts on Red State Rebels. And vote for Grant!

I wish I could say this is as sad as it can get, but Hillary Clinton, in her blind ambition to win, and without regard or respect for any sense of fairness, consistency, or honor, and in spite of any real and lasting damage she is inflicting on the Democratic party has condoned some major damage to our Country itself. And now the senseless, hurtful, damaging and polarizing turn in her campaign toward our fellow Americans whose skin color is dark, playing on the deep seated fears of those who do or don't know any better, this will be a turning point that America will have to make a choice: do we condone this conduct by Clinton and her campaign and continue to vote for her, or do we stop rewarding this behavior by not voting for her? If she is rewarded for this, we will surely see more of it, and I, for one, can't stomach much more of this type of hateful devicive politics, she is starting to make George Bush look good, this is a very sad day for our country, I hope the message comes thru that most of this great country of America does not think this way, God help us all.
