How not to be affected
Philip P. wrote last night:
Can you please post something to counteract (in some small way) the tidal wave of slobber that has poured from the mouths of Obamaniacs and flooded the country (or at least the blogosphere) as of tonight? Even the National Review folks seemed mighty charmed, or at least so intimidated that they haven’t the nerve to issue a strong rebuttal. I don’t want to reduce myself to trolling Free Republic, but I may have to go there to ensure that I don’t suddenly acquire diabetes from all this super-saccharine nonsense. Is anyone—anyone at all—trying even the least bit to keep BHO in perspective? I saw parts of his speech tonight: sounded alright, but are the pundits the only ones who actually think your run-of-the-mill, “non-partisan” American is going to fall for this junior sophist?LA replies:
Well, I wrote a pretty strong thing Tuesday morning calling McCain and Obama political criminals. I said Obama’s been attending the black American equivalent of a weekly Nuremberg rally for 20 years. I don’t know that I can get stronger than that.Philip replies:
You’re right, of course, though it’s near impossible to avoid Obama talk these days (99 percent of it wildly favorable), at least in the circles I’m damned to tread. It’s like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and I’m the only one immune to the germ’s hold. Oh well, the massive disillusionment that will surely follow even a few months of his certain-to-amuse presidency will be nice.

“Under the editorship of Richard Lowry, NR’s job is not to represent conservatism, but to advise non-conservative candidates how to adjust their message and image so as to make conservative voters believe that they, the non-conservative candidates, are conservatives.”Ray G. in Dearborn writes (June 5):
I can’t take it anymore. This obsession with race, especially with The Big O’s ascension and the constant references to how terrible the US was before “Him”. I feel like opting out of society for at least while, not paying attention to politics, corporate diversity conditioning and the like. I really feel like withdrawing.LA replies:
Where are you picking up this stuff, from news tv stations?Ray replies:
Yeah, cable news channels….and I listen to a lot of talk radio (Laura Ingraham, Rush, Savage, etc.). Also, the subtle ways the so called non-political information services such as www.msn.com constantly have BO on their front home page everyday, with glowing pictures and captions. Just last week, MSN had a featured article about the “new Americans”—multi-racial Americans and how they could be key to BO’s ascendancy. I could have gagged!
