Raised Eyebrow

Obama's Election Sparks Gun Sales.

"Everyone is here for the same reason: Buy it now or you're not going to have a
chance in the future," said Charlie Street, a gun owner

Sigh. But apparently paranoia is a bipartisan issue.

"One of the strangest things I've had happen in the past few weeks was that I've
had people coming in here wearing Obama buttons and Obama T-shirts," Glen
Parshall, owner of a local Fort Worth gun shop. "[They] tell me they're in here
to buy them before he bans them."
I feel like I am taking crazy pills! [I don't even want to get into the depths of my own paranoia on this issue: that some of these people are out to get weapons to use on Obama, rather than just stockpiling them for whatever convoluted conception of self-defense they hold. I guess I am just a little shaken...]

It is far too late for that. I've still got brain hemorrhaging going on from the Obama-Hillary deathmatch from 7 months ago. The news and opinions of far-right wingers has just helped to deter the healing process.

This made me think.

What if they were sitting around thinking, "How do we get Obama 'in'?

Well, we NEED a 'death-match' for the righties to focus on. We NEED Bill Clinton to be ambiguous about it.

Place those ingredients in the oven at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes and 'Voila!', Obama is the Prez!

McCain, with his goofy faces, his picking Palin, his huge gaffe, "The economy is solid" almost seems to be 'playing along' too!

I thought so too. He managed to not be conservative enough for some in his base, and then chase off the moderates with his blatant mudslinging and taking on a Token Hockey Mom/Creatard as his running mate. His campaign was basically designed to fail.
