So, George W. Bush won. And he?s done so by a solid margin. The Democrats? attempted coup managed to last all of eight hours. Not only is the President the first candidate to win a majority of the vote in a Presidential Election since 1988, but he also won more popular votes than any other candidate in history. The Democrats spent months telling us that high voter turnout would equal a win for them but, as it turns out, when 60% of the electorate showed up at the polls it translated into a Bush lead of nearly four million votes. In short: take that, you sons of bitches.
The Democrats are now talking about how this is a signal that Bush should ?bring the country together?. Translated into American, this means ?now that you?ve won, you should surrender to us.? The hell with that. We?ve won. Winning means not having to say you?re sorry. Bush already brought a majority of Americans together: they voted for him. He doesn?t need to reach out to them: they need to reach out to him.
If anyone needs to work to ?bring the country together? it?s those on the left who have divided it so badly. Those who sought to destroy this great man should get down upon their knees and beg the victors for mercy. And maybe, just maybe, we?ll let a few of them linger on for the simple reason that they amuse us. My life?s goal is to see the Democratic Party virtually obliterated and left as a rump of people like Stephanie Herseth who both mostly agree with us anyways and are easy on the eyes.
That?s the future of the Democratic Party: providing Republicans with a number of cute (but not that bright) comfort women.
Let?s face a hard truth: this was the bitterest Presidential campaign in living memory. The Democrats and their allies staked everything on the defeat of this President. All of the resources they had accumulated over a generation of struggle were thrown into this battle: and they have failed. Despite all of their tricks, despite all of their lies, the people have rejected them. They mean nothing. They are worth nothing. There?s no point in trying to reach out to them because they won?t be reached out to. We?ve got their teeth clutching the sidewalk and out boot above their head. Now?s the time to curb-stomp the bastards.
The first obvious major fight is going to be over the confirmation of the next Chief Justice of the United States and probably a new Associate Justice as well. The reason for saying this should be obvious: William Rehnquist is an ill man and, I think, the obvious candidate to replace him is none other than Clarence Thomas who would be, of course, the first black Chief Justice but who would also, much more importantly, be the most conservative one in living memory. His seat could then be given to another solid conservative and then, once Stevens, Ginsberg, or O?Conner goes, we can get a real conservative majority on the court: and keep it for a decade or more.
It?s worth stepping back to think about the scale of what we have accomplished. We?ve fought back and won against the most destructive attack in the modern history of Presidential campaigns. Despite all of the books, movies, television shows: despite the seeming involvement of all of Hollywood and all of Academia, they lost. They used every trick in the book against us: and they lost. We now control the White House, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and a majority of State Governorships. The Republican Party is now, truly, the majority party in the United States.
This is a mandate. Not only for the President to carry on and win the War on Terrorism, but also to make other needed reforms. To begin: the massive landslides for the eleven state Gay Marriage amendments, even the one in Oregon, show that the Federal Marriage Amendment will carry if it proves to be needed. Better still, with these majorities, the President will have a real shot at enacting some form of entitlement reform in the coming years.
This is a decisive moment in American history. There?s no denying this fact. The nation stood at the crossroads yesterday and the people choose to go the right way. They rejected the Democrat Party and the pernicious things that those people stand for.
Michael Moore and his ilk have been rejected by the people. Treason didn?t carry the day. Forgeries and lies failed to produce the results that they wanted.
It was closer than we?d like, of course. Far too close. I still can?t believe that anyone voted for John Kerry. John Kerry was a personification of everything that?s wrong with the Democrat Party today. A traitor in his youth, he proposed policies of economic division at home and which would have brought military defeat abroad. The once-proud Democratic Party of people like Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson has been reduced to such a level as to become little better than the party of AIDS, abortion, adultery and appeasement.
But, whatever, we won: to hell with the rest of them. Those who didn?t support Bush can go and perform a certain anatomically impossible act. They lost, now they can sit in the back of the bus.
Thank God Almighty.
