Democrats Blame Their Failures On Voters
If you kept a can of gasoline next to a wood-burning stove and it blew up and
the house burned down, who would you blame? Yourself, or the firefighters for
failing to squirt enough water on the blaze?
If you gave yourself a gap-toothed smile by smashing your jaw with a big
hammer, would you blame yourself, or the company that made the hammer?
If you owned a restaurant and your customers repeatedly told you they wanted
steak and eggs for breakfast, but you had only tofu and ionized air on the
menu, who would you blame for a lack of business? Yourself, or the customers?
If you are a Democrat, or one of the thousands of brain-dead pundits in
America, you'd choose the last answer to those questions.
How do we know? Because that's the answer that Democratic party officials,
their candidates and their apologist lackeys in the news media have been
giving for the electoral disaster that hit Democrats on Nov. 5.
The excuses for the party's loss of seats in the House and its loss of
control of the Senate are pathetic, insulting, and in the grand tradition of
modern-day Democrats, contemptuous of normal, hard-working, independent-thinking
The Dems have been whining that they lost because their base didn't turn out
to vote, that Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities didn't tromp to polling
places and vote en masse for Democrats. They've sniffled that the news media
didn't get their message out. And they've been outraged that Americans are
more concerned right now about stomping the homicidal maniac Saddam Hussein
and the blood-thirsty Osama bin Laden than they are about paying for
prescription drugs and raising taxes.
Democrats have been engaging in the most insulting behavior of all: Blaming
their own stupidity, incompetence and irrelevance on everyone else.
For years now, Americans have been demanding steak and eggs for breakfast.
They've been shouting for less government, a stronger military, and the most
basic of human rights, the right to keep more of the money they work so hard
Since Sept 11, Americans have realized more than ever that the world is full
of evil freaks who hate us, who hate freedom and who are hell-bent on
destroying us. And they understand that we've got to kill them before they
Most Americans support the idea of using our bombs, missiles and lasers to
rid the world of monsters who shoot women in the head for daring to go to
school or for showing their eyebrows in public.
The majority of Americans think that rather than playing nicey-nice with the
mass-murderer Hussein, we should bomb the crap out of the piece of human garbage
before he kills more people.
Most Americans know from the grateful smiles of the unshackled Afghan women
that we did the right thing in bombing and shooting the slave-driving Taliban
out of business.
And since 9-11, the clear majority of Americans believe that George Bush is
the right guy to be president and that he's doing a great job in leading the
But while Americans have been demanding steak and eggs for breakfast,
Democrats have been offering them tofu and ionized air.
While we've been asking to keep more of our money, Democrats have been
scolding us and telling us that we can't keep our money.
While we've been demanding a coffin for that Damn Saddam, Democrats
have been wincing and telling us it's not nice to kill a budding Adolph
While we've supported Bush in pushing for quick action against Hussein,
Democrats have been waiting--apparently--for the deaths of thousands and
millions of more Israelis and Kurds before deciding to do the right thing.
While we've supported the use of force to protect our nation and our
collective freedoms, the Democrats have cringed. While we've started punching
back at those who punched us first, Democrats have demanded that we not punch
back and that we become a punching bag for every freedom-hating,
woman-killing religious zealot on the planet.
And while we've believed that President Bush is doing the right thing and
looking out for us, Democrats have been shrieking that he's a war-mongering
Democrats are way out of touch with normal Americans, and that gulf grows
wider each day. But rather than blaming themselves for not listening to us
and doing what we want them to do, they're blaming us for not thinking the
way they want us to.
Rather than respecting our views, Democrats are outraged that we have views;
they're appalled that we can think for ourselves. They've left the gas can by
the stove and blamed the firefighters for the fire. They've hit themselves on
the head with a hammer and blamed the hammer maker for the blood.
There is comfort, though, in watching the Democrats blame their electoral
loss, not on their tired, worn and dumb ideas, but on everyone else. A
restaurant that offers tofu and ionized air to customers who demand steak and
eggs will quickly go out of business.
The Democrats are sprinting to bankruptcy court.
