This is an informal poll. Tomorrow’s a big day: the first anniversary of The Rapture, a.k.a. the Shoah, and ironically, the first full day of Scott Brown’s tenure in a national office.
Speaking of health care, gazing at this makes me feel good. I just may spend the day clutching a copy to my bosom, weeping with gratitude, and muttering “the people’s seat…”
Or, I may spend the day gloating. Going to the courthouse and having my middle name officially changed to “Schadenfreude.”
One of the barometers of Conservative Happiness is how batshøt crazy Keith Olbermann gets on “national” TV (hard to call an audience of 200,000 people and two caged gerbils “national” but I’ll just go with the polite fiction.) He called Scott Brown a “teabagging racist,” among other things:
“In Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees.”
I dunno: by this description, Scott Brown has matches on 6 out of 8 dimensions of compatibility with Keith Olbermann. We know for sure no one wants to see him naked (except maybe Chris Matthews) so one assumes that he wasn’t a nude model, and I’ll give him “homophobic” on a PC technicality that you can’t be truly phobic of yourself. I recommend Pledge Multi-Surface for the getting the spittle off the camera lenses and desk tops at MSNBC after these outburst. Nothing cuts through the ick better. If I were a producer at MSNBC, I’d just have KO gargle with the stuff prophylactically.
But, fellow conservative teases, be warned: Dear Leader is going to get combative if Scott Brown wins. I know somewhere Chris Matthews is a-tingle with anticipation at the thought of BO getting TOUGH. Ooh, ruff-n-tuff: just smack those nasty teabaggers! Then smack me! Please! But I’m with Jim Geraghty, back here in the real world:
Great to know, Mr. President, that Iran shot protesters dead in the streets and beat the hell out of young kids, North Korea’s firing off missiles so regularly you can set a clock to them, al-Qaeda tried to blow up a plane on Christmas, al-Qaeda’s Yemeni branch is winning “Franchise of the Year,” China’s hacking Google until every search brings back at least one smiling Mao photo, Kabul’s blowing up, our southern border looks like a war zone, and after a year of outreach, reset buttons, “changing the tone” and 365 days of kumbaya we finally get to see a “combative response” from you . . . to a Republican winning a race.
I look forward to his Oval Office address announcing that the electorate has deeply disappointed him, and that he expects more of us.
