Column: Those Poor Things

Republicans, I mean:

Republicans really are going to fight this down to the last day, aren’t they?

I have to admit, I’m surprised. Had someone given me the thrashing Barack Obama gave them Thursday night, I think I would have left the country and turned off my cell phone.

Had someone stuck it to me that hard, in front of 40 million TV viewers and 70,000 howling, booing, cheering, flag-waving Democratic lunatics gone wild with joy in a Denver football stadium that wouldn’t see a party like that if the Broncos won five Super Bowls at once, I think I might need a couple of years at least to recover.

Had someone prefaced his speech, as Obama did, with a series of my party’s former friends describing why they now hated my pathetic ass, I think I’d be sorely tempted to give up, go home and down an entire bottle of Jaegermeister and watch reruns of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

So, the fact that Republicans are going ahead with the rest of their campaign at all is quite the sign of fortitude.

  1. Now that the Religious Right has been given the dominionist stealth candidate they’ve always wanted, the turnout of the nuts and religious crazies will be huge. Obama doesn’t stand a chance. Eight more years of utter darkness as they take us to Armageddon.
