The Devil loves Obama

By Capt. Fogg

It seems everyone running against a Republican candidate is supported by the bogey man of the day and that's held true throughout my lifetime. Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Min, Nikita Kruschev, the Anti-Christ: they all fully endorsed Democrats, if we're to believe the cannot-tell-a-lie Republicans. So of course it's no surprise to learn that Kim Jong Il would just love to see Barak Obama elected; at least that's what Lyin' Laura Ingraham was jibbering about Monday on Fox News.

Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and all the boys over at Hamas are all wearing the Big O T-Shirt these days. Of course one might speculate that any of these evildoing action figures would be smart enough to know that their actual support would harm a candidate and thus would express a fondness for those they would least like to win, but Laura and her limp-brained fans aren't big on logical processes when it's so much fun to hate.

Anyway, now that Kim's axis may no longer be quite as evil, we may suspect that his support will swing over to the Republican side. Will Laura have to decide that he's not so bad after all?

Steve Clemons, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation announced on his blog, The Washington Note, last night that George may overcome Dick's objections and take Mr. Kim off the "terror watch list" by tomorrow. Whether or not he will be moved to some lesser list, like the Nexus of Nasty remains to be seen but I have to wonder if Bush is really trying to engage in some statecraft these days -- just for the hell of it -- or whether he's just trying to slide North Korea to the sidlines so he can concentrate on the remaining axial, Iran. You know, the one with oil.

Our panting, slobbering gullibility being what it is, if our government had told us in stern and somber voice that Gandhi and Mandela were evil murdering racists, we would have believed them without question and certainly without evidence.

Personally, I take it as a very positive sign that world leaders of any ilk are supporting Obama. It means they see a chance for reasonable diplomacy and common sense foreign policy instead of the murderous insanity of Bush/Cheney. It also means that ultimately, more Americans will stay alive by avoiding a Bushlike meatgrinder war.

LOL Fogg. I think we're all in the Nexus of Nasty. I'm finding the Bush turnaround on this very interesting in any event.

Our government has quite a history of providing demons for us to go after: the Indians, Spain, Mexico, witches, Iraq. They blow the whistle, we growl like Rottweilers.

I admit I'm disturbed when Bush seems to be rational - what has he got up his sleeve? When it looks like turnaround, I smell subtrifuge.
