Yet another own goal from the Democrats
Just when you think that it couldn't get any worse for the Barak Obama campaign, along comes some dickhead to prove that it can. Now the British trendy left want to get in on the act in the form of a hectoring Guardian piece by Jonathan Freeland which argues that if Obama is not elected then "Europeans and others will conclude that their dispute is with not only one ruling clique, but Americans themselves. For it will have been the American people, not the politicians, who will have passed up a once-in-a-generation chance for a fresh start - a fresh start the world is yearning for."

You couldn't make this shit up, could you? By now copies of this sanctimonious, self-righteous load of old wank will be circulating in e-mail form around the USA. "Read this," the e-mail might run, "and you'll realise why Obama is the man for Europe, but McCain is America's man through and through." Or words to that effect. It will cause outrage. . . What am I talking about? It's outraged me already. If I was an American the temptation to vote for McCain just to stick two fingers up to this well-fed Guardian hack with his pretty boy glasses - to say nothing of his ilk - would be pretty overwhelming. You can just understand the sheer atavistitic joy that ordinary Americans feel when they lift a leg and fart in the direction of people like that. Which is probably what they will do at the election.

The Democrats are not trailing in the polls because their campaign has been poorly handled. They may have been wrong-footed by Sarah Palin's entry, but the campaign can recover from that. What the party cannot recover from, and here is why the Democrats are now odds-on to lose the election, is the rank stupidity of its supporters on both sides of the Atlantic. It started with the Sarah Palin pregnancy, continued with the "Sambo beat the bitch" nonsense and now continues with this lunacy from London.

Obama's supporters seem to be more concerned with sticking the boot into heartland America by reminding its denizens of just how much they despise them than they are with winning in November. Here's a hint, people. You need the votes of some of those people. Try and keep your bile in check or go down to yet another defeat.



absolutely. You've been right on all these points. Remember when the Guardian sent letters from its columnists to everyone in Ohio--and Kerry lost Ohio and Bush won in 2004?

The thing is, the real world doesn't matter to the Toynbees and Freedlands of the world--its where the people whom they despise come from. So helping the Obama campaign go down, when it's mojo is hiding and when there are already deep flaws in it (to me, on abortion, teaching, and national security asssessments) is going to be enjoyable to this lot. It'll reassure them that the self-destructive, self-fulfilling prophecies that are their stock in trade are correct.

It was even worse than that - they gave out addresses of Ohio voters and invited the readers to write to them!

I would like to think that this is all part of some masterly plan to rupture Anglo-American relations, but I fear that it is just stupidity in action.
