Nutty E's

As much as they respect brains and sophistication, liberals find theirs largely inoperative when it comes to Barack. Here's the latest bit of email I've received purporting to offer profound insights. (The email I received is in blue, my responses are in black):

A question of perspective :
Obama/Biden vs McCain/Palin, what if things were switched around?..... think about it. Would the country's collective point of view be different? Could racism be the culprit?

What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage, including a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?
Considering he's black, and this would reinforce negative perceptions of being black, he would surely face a different standard. But you have to take the good with the bad - Barack wouldn't be the Democratic nominee if he wasn't black.
What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?
That would be a nice addition to his naval academy training.
What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

One of the only justifications for his candidacy would be gone.
What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?
If it had occurred decades ago, no one would care, and Barack would defend himself from any mention of it by claiming that his failed marriage isn't what's going to bring the American people jobs and a prosperous economy. But, of course, the vast majority of voters would not be aware of the fact, because the pro-Obama media wouldn't write about it. (see next post down.)
What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe
disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his standards?
See above.
What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair while
he was still married?
See above.
What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to pain
killers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable organization?
See above.
What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?
She wouldn't be hated by liberals who judge her harshly for being blond, rich and tacky. Those negative attributes would be viewed as insignificant compared to her being in possession of the liberal certificate of approval known as a Harvard diploma.
What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?
(The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption
in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings
and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)
Obama has many worse things in his recent past and no one seems to care, so there's no reason to think a 20 year old scandal would matter. Hope and Change is all that matters.
What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?
No one would vote for Barack - he would have lost his ability to differentiate himself.
What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?
See above.
What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included
discipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes?
He'd be up by 30%, as he'd have some experience that people could respect.
What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many
occasions, a serious anger management problem?
With his lack of any other achievement in his short career, this might loom large. If he had McCain's 50+ years of professional experience, no one would care, and again, the media wouldn't write about it.
What if Michelle Obama's family had made their money from beer distribution?
They'd be rich.
What if the Obamas had adopted a white child?
Folks would be confused, but impressed at yet another example of Barack's willingness to do anything to win.
You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected reality,
do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are?

This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes
positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities in
another when there is a color difference.

Education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest offices in
the land as well as our standing in the world. You make the call.
Given that John McCain's education was completed around the time Barack was born, there are other things to judge him by, so education appropriately takes a back seat to experience. Since Barack lacks any qualifications for the presidency, his educational experience is vital.

Given that Joe Biden appears to suffer mental problems and has been on the wrong side of virtually every important vote during his lifelong senate career, Sarah looks awfully strong by comparison.


I've got a question for them:
  • If John McCain had 8 years in the state senate as his single largest and longest career achievement, had little to show for his time there, and had built his career by cavorting with racists, black separatists, former terrorists and other scummy people, would he have been able to get this far?
  • If Barack were not black, would he have been able to get the Democratic nomination?
Now there are some important questions for liberals to ponder. But they won't.
You make the call.
