A disgrace on Minnesota, a disgrace on America

(Note: In another thread, a commenter questions the statement I approvingly quoted, “God hates America,” and I explain what I mean.)

Regarding the election of the nasty, ugly, left-wing “comedian” Al Franken to the U.S. Senate, an L-dotter says it all:

Minnesota, the land of 10,000 flakes.

Which makes me recall how, when I was traveling in Minnesota about four years ago I saw a number of white, middle-class people who were hugely fat, shaped like blimps. It was an unreal sight. I’ll bet they all voted for Franken.

Here’s another comment from the same Lucianne thread that also says it all. Can two entirely different statements each say it all? Well, today they can.

God hates America. He hates America enough to give us what we want. And now we have it.

Someone once said that there are two kinds of people in the world—those that say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “Thy will be done.” But I wouldn’t say God hates America. To the contrary I’d say he loves America; He loves America enough to give us the ‘lake of fire’ that our resistance to his sovereign will and his righteous law indicates that we as a people most desire. I mean, what kind of loving God would give to evil-doers a place on earth to dwell in that would make them miserable all the time. Can evil-doers be at all happy or content in a place where righteousness can anywhere be found? I think not.

I don’t understand this, but assuming that the fault is in myself and that others will understand it, I’m posting it.

Franken’s victory is inseparable from the anti-Republican wave that carried the blank screen (projection-ready) to the White House. Coleman deserved to win, though his defeat also could be taken as a refutation of the theory that elections are won by positioning rather than by leadership. He supported the McCain amnesty bill, which may have lost him a few votes and dollars.
