Election Night 2016 seems like a joy ride that never quits. Already, not only is Trump acting like the President, commanding all the world’s attention, he’s making Obama seem like a shadow on the wall.
Not only did Trump trump the MSM, pundits, talking heads, and the whole sorry shower of Democrat sycophants in the dead-tree press, he’s driving Hillary Rodent Clinton’s supporters closer to the psychiatric wing of their local hospitals. Obama whines in front of the press corps (or is it the press corpse?) looking like a hole in space. Michelle says she knows what hopelessness feels like now. Boo hoo. Do the Democrats really have a monopoly on stupidity? What do their incoherent gripes amount to?
First, they think it’s not a “legitimate victory” since Trump didn’t win the “popular vote”. Never mind the fact the US is a constitutional republic and fifty separate elections were held in fifty states. The states’ electors, reflecting the will of the voters of those states, then choose the president in the Electoral College. And even then, this choice has to be approved by the House of Representatives.
Second, suddenly, the evil Russians, recently relegated to “regional power” status by Obama, have the power to influence the minds of American voters, without their knowledge, to vote for Trump. This stunning discovery was made only after the Rodent lost the election. Why then? As that great British wit, Dr Johnson, observed “…when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates the mind wonderfully”. Prior to that, any talk of the election results being challenged was a threat to American democracy. Subsequently, it was the duty of all real Americans. What a difference a day makes!
Third, the Wikileaks donation of thousands of DNC/Clinton/Podesta emails describing in detail the collusion and corruption of the media, Democrats, “journalists”, and all those orcs of the politcal class, unfairly influenced the election. But influencing the voters is what elections are all about. All candidates and power groups attempt to get voters to vote for them! I mean, duh! What part of their brains has been removed?
Fourth, Clinton lost because “she’s a woman”. Spare me. No, she lost because she is a liar, a crook, a hypocrite, an incompetent, and a thoroughly unlikable person. Woman?—I’ll leave that as an exercise for the reader. Aside from the fact that women have been the rulers of nations and empires from time immemorial, how would Clinton’s winning be “historic”? Only in the sense of President Hoover being historic, because he was a mining engineer and spoke Chinese. Oh, sorry, those are real talents, something Clinton lacks. Her political trajectory matches that of Elena Ceausescu, a political lamprey along for the ride with the real leader and possessing a hunger for power bordering on the maniacal.
Fifth, they have no common decency. Clinton didn’t even have the decency to stand in front of her supporters, concede the election and thank them. She was too busy getting drunk and throwing tantrums while assaulting Podesta, as some have said. Either way, her “temperament” is obviously unsuited for the role of President of the US if she can’t behave decently when the situation requires. Her supporters have been rioting on the streets, assaulting people and causing property damage in various cities across the nation—vile behavior by immature people. If the Democrats want to be taken even remotely seriously, they had better shape up pretty quick and start behaving like adults instead of whiny, sniveling idiots on university campuses.
So, listen up whiners, the nuclear-powered icebreaker, the Donald J Trump, is moving through the Washington ice-pack, so learn to sink or swim with the new regime.
OK, that’s enough for now, so do what I did—buy yourselves a bottle of excellent Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky; I recommend Rebel Yell (of course) and Woodford Reserve, Distiller’s Selection. Book off January 20th for an all-TV day.
Oh, one more thing: do yourself a favor and read Conrad Black’s latest. He’s on a roll right now, rather like the Hulk on steroids with a flamethrower.
