I'm watching Fox News. The lies, they are like sweet, sweet candy today. Nutella is, of course, absolutely right in that this victory has absolutely nothing to do with Megan, it's about people, and, at heart, acknowledging and valuing our shared humanity.
But fuck if the right's reaction isn't making me feel like I'm eating dessert first.
And frankly, I almost don't blame Megan for feeling like this is all about her. She dug a big ole hole for herself, and now we get to bury her in it.
Her whiny, irrational, sore loser posts have already been taken apart far and wide, so I'd just like to highlight a passage from one that might get overlooked;
What I hope is that the Democrats take a beating at the ballot boxand [sic] rethink their contempt for those mouth-breathing illiterates in the electorate. I hope Obama gets his wish to be a one-term president who passed health care. Not because I think I will like his opponent--I very much doubt that I will support much of anything Obama's opponent says. But because politicians shouldn't feel that the best route to electoral success is to lie to the voters, and then ignore them.That closing line is such a thing of beauty. How dare Obama enact one of the central planks of his campaign platform? What kind of liar tells you what he's going to do before you even give him the chance to do it, then actually goes out and does it?
At least he'll pay for it in 2012, when Palin in no way, shape, or form turns herself into the conservative Mondale. That bastard Obama lived up to a campaign promise and accomplished something every President since Truman has failed to do, he's toast.
