“Hello, God? It’s me again: Fear-addled Bitterclinger”

Sociologist-in-chief is dusting off his cliched and inaccurate rendering of evolutionary biology to explain why voters are reacting so negatively to Democrats,

Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,’ Obama said Saturday evening in remarks at a small Democratic fundraiser Saturday evening. ‘And the country’s scared.

OK, when I read this (up to the ‘Obama’ in this quote) I thought BO was talking about the Democrat candidates, Democrats in general, and Jamie Galbraith in particular.

This is a very, very rich quote to mine, which is why so many people are donning their hard hats and setting the blast caps. The country’s scared: he finally has that right. I mean, give him credit (come on, you can do it): he isn’t calling us a bunch of racists. The rest of the quote has him attributing our “fear” to the economic downturn.

But, of course, Barry the Science Guy can’t even get his “fight or flight” response right. We lower order animals-who-vote are purely emotional and can’t process “science.” My very, very first reaction to this was, “So, show me the ‘science.’ What ‘science’? What ‘facts’ are so compelling that only someone in the grip of terrorizing fear can turn a blind eye and vote against a Democrat, and you know, tell a pollster that they not only miss George Bush, they’re getting a little nostalgic for Sweater Boy?”

Those were the days: real hair and cardies with pockets.

Fun fact: the sweater that Jimmah wore for his Oval Office Thermostat speech is in his Presidential library/museum. Contrast with Hawaii B-O, who keeps the temps at +75 F. I say we send November 3 condolence packages of sweaters to Chairman Zero with little notes saying, “It’s a cold, cold world out there and cold voters are Republican voters. Aloha means ‘good-bye,’ too.”

  1. I started out as a Democrat then became a Republican. About a quarter way through Dubah I first gave in to despair and hopelessness. Now at age 52(yesterday) I am an Anarchist , or more accurately, a voluntaryist.
    I see no hope in governments anymore of any kind. I would rather take my chances with my neighbors than with the brownshirts our government folks have become in the past 20 or so years (of course it started long before that). The more I look into the way governments, of all shades, work to control and manipulate us, the less I want to do with them.
    Government is evil by it’s nature. It’s like bringing a Cobra into your home and letting your 2 year old play with it. It may not bite today but it has no choice it WILL bite eventually. It is it’s nature.

  2. Quick follow up. I ran across this the other day. It is now posted in a Text widget at the top of my blog.
