Obama Demoted to Mortal

I don't have the time to develop a full state of the election post, but am having so much fun watching Obama's downward spiral I have to post something. The one thing I keep thinking is that we have the opportunity to watch two DEMs (Hillary and Obama) go from totally thinking they have it in the bag to losing it. Hillary had coronation mentality until Obama finally took it from her. Obama has had anointed mentality until Sarah Palin was named for the GOP VP slot.

I have said many times (though not original with me) that the Left ALWAYS overplays its hand. If you have seen the movie "Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" you will see a striking similarity between the antics of the witch-led hoard that kills Aslan and the way the Left has attacked Sarah Palin. Though the whole scene should be watched to get the full flavor of what I am saying, you can see some of it in this clip:

The Left has totally overplayed the attacks on Sarah Palin and it has bitten them. Obama has lost ground in overall polls and in key demographics. People are even putting their money where their mouth is and buying McCain stock in the online election trading site Intrade. Last week Obama led McCain $57 to $43. Yesterday McCain passed him by a fraction and today he is ahead almost $2 a share at the time of writing.

As I see and hear clips of Obama, he seems so lost and floundering. His timing is very bad, he lacks his former confidence, and he strikes out in angry and whiny statements. Yesterday I read one of the most descriptive posts on what Obama must be feeling and thinking. It is called Rattled. Check it out for a very entertaining experience.

So with the polls, fundraising slowing, friends worrying and opponents gaining optimism; Obama for now seems to have been demoted to mortal status. Of course things can change swiftly. I think if Obama EVER has a good day again, the media will run a series of stories claiming he has recaptured his Mojo. Actually, they may lower the bar to if he has a day without sticking his foot in his mouth. For now, it is quite fun to see the dismay on the left. The difference between us and them is that we can cope with a McCain loss without medicinal assistance. I think a McCain win will result in more trips to the pharmacy by the left.

    We may have to put out alerts for the risk of Post Election Stress and Trauma Syndrome in November.

    We also must guard ourselves for what will certainly be accusations of racism and stolen elections because Republicans are racist. Likewise, citizens of the European Union will say Americans are racist, because we didn't vote for the black man.

    Never mind that a black man would never be able to run in the EU countries, the US will be classified as a bunch of whitebread hicks that want to re-enact slavery. Radical black political groups will also say this is one more example of how "whitey" wants to keep the black man down.

    Even if McCain wins, he loses.
