So, New Year’s Resolutions Come Three Weeks Behind Schedule

In the spirit of “Loyal Opposition My [redacted],” I would like to offer y’all some cheer for the upcoming inauguration. Yes, we thought that the gag-worthy Obamessiah Adoration would be over after the election, but it seems to have increased in frequency – much like a teenage boy, whom, having finally gotten laid, is not calm and satisfied, but wants more – and more – and more.

At any rate, there are some silver linings in all this. Thanks to Glenn Beck, there’s a theme song for Tuesday’s festivities.

The top New Year’s Resolution – to lose weight – has not been a paragon of success – until now. Who can deny that the idolatry of Obama is nauseating? Who hasn’t lost her appetite (yes, even for things made out of chocolate) while watching the media-love-fest, which puts baby-talking teenagers who sit on each other’s laps to shame? Who hasn’t thrown up, if even in their mouths, if even a little, in the past few months? Fear not, dear readers: weight loss just got easier. Move over, small portions and blue plates! Obama is the New South Beach Diet.

The New York Times is running out of money – fast. Apparently, people don’t want to buy the paper that sent Maureen Dowd on a fact-finding mission to Alaska that was reminiscent of Joe Wilson’s “fact-finding” mission to Nigeria.

The pundits are already pointing out that Obama cannot possibly deliver on all of his promises. (Granted, we wish they had said so in October, but ’tis the nature of the modern media.) This allows plenty of opportunity to say “I told you so” and the like.

Americans who are abroad and are ashamed of being from this country are feeling the love from foreigners. Silver lining: those unpatriotic, thankless pansywaists are more likely to stay abroad.

Sorry for the rant (sort of!) – but I figured that y’all have to be more than a little tired of the love-fest.

In Other News, Gravity Still Pulls People Downwards

The Electoral College has yet to convene to officially elect Barack Obama as the next president of the United States, and the myths surrounding his campaign are already falling.  Aside from a wonderful opportunity to say “I told you so” to the liberals in our lives, this will provide wonderful fodder for the next four years.   (“Hope and change:” the new “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”) The latest: the Campaign Finance Institute analysed the donations to the Obama campaign and found that the unprecedented amount of cash was not given by small Americans who were inspired by Obama’s greatness.  (Hat tip: TigerHawk.) A separate study found that perpetual motion machines do not actually work as advertised.

The reality: 26% of Obama’s $640 million (roughly $150 million) came from donors who gave $200 or less.  (Approximately 25% of George Bush’s donations came from small donors.)  The remaining $450 million – more than George Bush, John Kerry, and John McCain raised – came from people who gave more than $200.   Another 27% of Obama’s donations came from people who gave between $200 and $1,000 (here); this still leaves about than $300 million from large, wealthy donors – which is roughly what McCain raised from all sources combined, including $84 million for public financing.

The Obama campaign was required to keep track of each and every donation, and report the name of any person whose total donations exceeded $200.  Given that the campaign disabled the security features on its web site, which enabled people to give under fictitious names and with personal information that did not correspond to the credit card which was used, we can’t even be sure that all of those people actually were under the $200 limit.

Perhaps the news that the Obama campaign was not funded by small donors who gave their hard-earned money (during one of the worst economies in decades), but rather by big money, will prompt the FEC to reconsider its decision to not investigate Obama.  (After all, some of the FEC’s rationale – aside from the admission that the audit would be embarrasing to a sitting President – was that the huge number of donors lessened any benefit of fraud.)

Obviously, Obama will enter office with a tremendous debt to pay off – not monetary, but political.  Ideally, the American public would have known about this before the election, when it was actually possible to not vote the #2 all-time recipient of funds from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, for example, into office, at a time when the fall of FM/FM created one of the worst financial disasters in history.  We will find out (the hard way) who paid for Obama’s presidency and what he owes them.  Unions and their PACs? Overseas moneyLobbyists?  (More lobbyists?)

Naturally, the Obama-pologists are out in full force.  Among the criticisms of CFI’s study: the figure for “small” donations was an arbitrary $200 (which ignores the fact that this is the threshold for reporting, and also a sensible one, in that many Americans have an extra $100 or so lying around, but not an extra thousand dollars); the Obama campaign was longer (as if that somehow changes what big donors believe they are owed); and, of course, the ceaseless comparisons on a percentage basis, which ignores the fact that Obama raised a frightening amount of money from big-time donors, who will come equipped with their own demands upon our new president.

(Thanks to the super-fabulous Queen of Swords for the title.)

President Barack Obama

God help us.

It is up to the Christians

I was reading an article over at Politico a few days ago which talked about obama’s appeal to church-going Christians. Or, should I say, his lack of appeal to church-going Christians.

In spite of all that has been written and talked about the obama outreach effort to evangelical voters, only 28% if this large demographic group is planning to vote for obama. In fact, that number is slightly less than John Kerry received 4 years ago. How significant is this? The evangelical vote is about one third of the electorate. This is good news for John McCain.

Should anyone be surprised? I really don’t think so.

The obama campaign is offensive to Christians on many levels. Certainly the Right to Life is a large part of that. Even more so, I think, is the messiah-like worship that obama’s supporters have given to him. 0bama himself has done nothing at all to discourage them, and actually seems to revel in it.

It is the type of behavior that leaves a large portion of the evangelical right wondering if we are seeing the rise of the antichrist.

I don’t use those words easily, and just seeing them on screen gives me pause.

He can still be defeated.

This year, more than ever, it is up to the Christians.

This isn’t the first time he’s done this. He did it to Hillary Clinton in the primaries. And now, on election eve, the Thug-In-Chief flips the bird to half of the country.
