Democrats Conquer AmericaI had a nightmare last night, and then I went to sleep. When I woke this morning, the nightmare returned. I guess it’s true. It’s worse than anyone thought. The Democrats have taken over the House, and probably the Senate. Nancy Pelosi and San Francisco values will Speak for the House. Governorships have fallen. The Republican Revolution? About as healthy as Castro.
CongratulationsFirst, congratulations to all you Democrats for your thousands of races in which you worked so hard. I know you are passionate about your beliefs, and you have won fair and square. The American people have spoken. We live in a democracy, and there is something to the collective wisdom of the people. So, I say to you America, you must know something that I don’t, and I humbly bow to your will.
A Few Bright NotesJoe Lieberman won. The demagogues did not get this fine man.
Many of the Democrats who beat Republicans this election were actually conservative or moderate. This means that the country did not necessarily turn its back on conservatism. In fact, the Democrats, in some cases, may have learned a lesson from Bill Clinton and moved to the center, despite the leadership of the far-left Pelosi and Dean.
The Schwarzenegger FactorArnold terminated Angelides. Why? After his defeat in the special voting two years ago on all his losing, conservatively economic propositions, Arnold took a sharp turn to the left, firing conservatives, hiring liberals, but also engaging a crack Bush campaign team. The whole combination worked, and Arnold is back. He manages to remain conservative fiscally if in no other way. He’s not my dream Republican office holder, but I have to admit his formula is working.
The Pelosi FactorI have to concede that this whacky raging liberal with her San Francisco values is a tough charmer, which makes her formidable. I, along with half a nation, cringe if her priorities and values ever become mainstream. We’ll get into San Francisco values in a near future post. Suffice it to say, she has reason to crow today, and she can relax her Runaway Bride eyes for a few days.
