The Convict and the Emperor
By: Bill Colley
The convict got more than 40 percent of the vote. Once more, 4 of 10 voters selected the convict over the President. These were voters inside Mr. Obama’s own party. The convict got more than 40 percent of the vote. For those just returning from the other side of the galaxy, a convict in a Texas prison received more than 40 percent of the votes cast in West Virginia’s Democrat Party Primary.
Media explains it away as West Virginia is a coal state under siege from White House energy policies but it’s a fair argument to call the outcome the canary in the mine. The Washington Post suggested rural West Virginia will be irrelevant when November arrives. The Washington Post suggests West Virginians are racists (Say, I just noticed the President is a person of color!!!) and preferred Hillary Clinton four years ago. In the General Election the Republican candidate won West Virginia with a thick cushion. Media and liberal academics would describe West Virginia as an outlier.
The convict got more than 40 percent of the vote.
This week I saw a post at Red State from Erick Erickson and he described the Pauline Kael moment being experienced by American lefties. The writer is referencing the President’s evolution on same-sex marriage. Tens of millions of hungry, homeless and jobless and the White House sees the union of Timmy and Tommy as the path to victory. The convict got more than 40 percent. It should also be noted the jailed Keith Judd has got a roof over his head and food on the table! As for liberals who believe the world was formed January 20, 2008 there was life before Obama and Pauline Kael was a media queen living in a bubble. When 40 years ago Richard Nixon trounced the leftist George McGovern, Kael was distraught and during a drunken binge told a party guest it couldn’t be possible. She didn’t know anyone who voted for Nixon.
The whole weeklong evolution business was a calculated maneuver by some fellows who can’t seem to get their feet out of the goo. Let’s re-examine West Virginia. The Obama campaign staff from 2008 was enshrined as brilliant by media sycophants. Were they? Hillary Clinton won 18 million votes inside the party. The figure is ten times the population of West Virginia. It tells us a great many people in the Democrat Party shunned Barack Obama. Then weeks before Election Day one of the worst Presidential campaigners in modern history watched the economy melt down on a fellow Republican’s watch. On Election Night the media minions insisted we had passed through a portal and evolved into another national species and they called it transformational change.
This week the convict got 40 percent. Four years ago the media insisted Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin had high negatives. The convict got 40 percent in a Democrat Primary against a sitting Democrat President. What’s the definition of high negatives?
Media is scrambling to portray Republican Mitt Romney as a mean and divisive figure. Did you know when Romney was in high school sometimes he was a bully? In modern America bullies are also supposed to be in lock-up and Mitt was a bully to a possibly homosexual man, however. They weren’t yet men and the other teenager apparently had no idea what his preference was the day Mitt Romney sheared the other boy’s hair. Mitt Romney also had no idea about the other boy’s orientation. Of course, Mitt’s actions 47 years ago must certainly tell us a great deal about his character. So says mainstream media. And while we were all bullied when young and we bullied others we need it explained Mitt’s quite normal teenaged behavior is different. It’s because Mitt is rich and rich people are all obviously mean and they prowl the country cutting hair from homosexuals and hang the locks as trophies from the walls of billiard rooms, don’t you know?
As you all well know the President was teaching in the temple when he was a boy and when he saw bullying he reproached the bully with words about casting the first stone. Although, no one really has any idea where or what Barack Obama was prior to sometime in the spring of 2004.
You can buy all this media spin but the convict still got more than 40 percent of the vote against the President and among the President’s fellow Democrats. It’s quite clear West Virginians don’t buy media spin. Keith Judd is just hoping for anyone but Obama. The convict who, from the pictures I’ve seen, also needs a haircut surely doesn’t want any more years tacked to his sentence!
No worries, Mr. Judd. A great shearing is coming in November.
