In denial

22 Dec

I love the way Ann Coulter says ::

The entire presidential election year was kind of a downer for conservatives. Once the “maverick” John McCain won the nomination, the rest of the year was like watching a slow motion car crash. Except at least a slow motion car crash is occasionally entertaining. So it was going to be a long year.

Ann, dear; McCain was your one and only hope of winning the presidential election. It’s just that the GOP goons didn’t allow him to be the “maverick” he’s perceived as.

Okay it was always going to be a Dem year, but McCain was the one candidate who could have transcended the national consensus and delivered the GOP a third straight term in the executive.

If you think that your brand of social conservatism and divisive rhetoric would have won out, you’re in more trouble than you think. Limbaugh is equally deluded.

    Unfortunately, Coulter and Limbaugh represent a large part of America and that part will no doubt present a problem over the next 4 years and hopefully 8 of Mr. Obama.

    Daniel,Well, Limbaugh has said that America is still a centre-right country, which is probably true – even if it just voted against a centre-right candidate. Limbaugh’s problem is that he’s not a centre-right commentator!The right have already begun a large offensive against Obama. They clearly care more about the culture wars and political power then they care about an economic recovery.

    Aaron I agree with you, I just like to stay sharp on any idea that they are on the fringes of American thinking.
