Is American ready for a woman for president? Is America ready for a black man for president? Hillary's a woman, Barak's a black man, but they are identical twins for all the difference in their politics. It's as if they're both going to smash our skulls with a baseball bat, but one uses aluminum, and the other a Louisville Slugger. Either way, it's Headache City.
So the question isn't whether or not America is ready for a woman or a black man in the White House. In fact, that's an altogether stupid question, as stupid as the statement that now is the time for either. It's pretty clear that America isn't ready for this woman or this black man. It's really pretty sad that such a question even gets the time of day in America. Of course it's the character of the person along with their record and plans for the job that matters.
What matters even more, of course, is us. Are we paying attention? Are we staying abreast of the political scene at least in some substantive manner? More clearly, and more sadly, it is not the case with far too many voters based on the money being raised for these two clowns. I think it was Thursday's Hannity & Colmes where I caught a guy interviewing primary voters who backed these two. Most of them backed Obama (I can't decide if that's good or bad), with one guy saying it's because Obama has the guts to say what needs to be said. In this case it was that Obama wants to raise taxes. The interviewer asked for a show hands (there was about twenty or so lunatics) of those for whom raising taxes was important. Most of them raised their hands. It's amazing that they think that's a good thing.
Other comments, before I changed the channel, included the usual meaningless crap about change and unity. Unity. As Dennis Prager stated in a recent Townhall column, "unity" means buying into his crap, otherwise you're "devisive".
These two clowns musn't win the election. I don't think our country or our culture can sustain four or more years of people like these.
