It’s really a wonderful thing to witness. The GOP establishment is saying the same things as the NYT.
Perhaps I will break from my military blogging and weigh in as the political season draws neigh, but it really is a wonderful thing. I know that I have many British and Australian readers, and I want to assure them that this, despite what they may have been told, is not the worst of American politics. It is the best. We are at our best, and this is the pinnacle of the American system right now. They can sit back and only wish it could be them.
Witness the beauty and grandeur. The GOP puts up someone who, rather than calling O’Donnell to concede, calls Obama and Biden (um, not his party) to chat after his loss. He votes for cap and trade, and then refuses to say that he’ll overturn the most hideous, obscene monstrosity in American economic history – Obamacare – and then finally sends a blast e-mail to the people of Delaware saying essentially that they were stupid. O’Donnell doesn’t deserve what has been bestowed upon her, says Castle.
But enter the American voter. When the establishment finally loses control over the narrative, when the people finally get fed up with the crap, when the electorate is finally awakened, she, the voter, is a mean bitch, she is. She rules.
Win, lose or draw, the voters are giving the slap down to the man. “The man.” This isn’t bad, or unseemly, or dirty, or somehow to be hidden. I am not embarrassed in the least. We, the voters, are at our finest. Sit back and admire us. The man answers to us now.
