Thankfully It's Over

Well, truthfully, it's kinda over. The actual election for President and Vice President will not be held until December and the votes shall not be counted until January of 2009.

What a God awful campaign this one has been. Both McCain and Obama did nothing but attempt to cut each other down. What about the various and sundry issues? I, for one, did not hear a peep about them from either candidate. Far more importantly did you hear any candidate say our Constitution comes first, last and always? Me neither. Rather disgusting eh?

And speaking about disgusting conduct I really hate those automated telephone calls that for some strange reason occur right in the middle of dinner. You know the ones I'm talking about — the 'vote for me' calls or the 'I'm Joe Candidate and blah, blah, blah'. It got so bad that we shut off the ringer to our telephone in the evening. Come to think about it — we haven't turned the ringer back on in several months. I do so love peace and quiet.

Now one good thing happened during this last election fiasco — Sara Palin. Yes I certainly would like to see her as a Playboy Centerfold. Out in the woods wearing a bush hat, boots, her birthday suit and sporting a rifle. Ya can't beat that. Yahoo!

Another good thing about Palin — she is everyday people, just like We the People. I like that. Indeed, I like that a lot. Also she "serves" the people of her state. To be sure she "serves" at the pleasure of the people of her state. She does not govern and she does not "rule."

Speaking of ruling, did you read the ever so short news piece about Obama being set to "rule" from day one? No? Well here is the clip (quoting

"Valerie Jarrett, co-chair of the transition team, appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday and said that "given the daunting challenges that we face, it's important that President-elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule [on] day one."

"Take power and begin to rule"? Gee, I maybe mistaken but didn't We the People fight a revolutionary war to rid ourselves of a monarch and to establish our independent colonies around a unified yet sovereign government? Why yes, yes we did.

I also seem to remember a document titled the Declaration of Independence which laid out the injustices done to the colonists by the British Crown, King George III and to let all countries know that —

"[I]t is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

[. . .]

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

God, I love that document. It quite literally brings tears to my eyes every time I read that second paragraph. What strength our founders had. What courage they possessed. What brilliant minds were they.

And look at what we have today. Garbage. Pure and simple trash. Our newly minted — though alleged — president elect, you know the one I'm talking about. Just to say his name takes two loads of phlegm. I wonder if anyone, let alone the Secret Service, has checked his shoes for fuses (By the way, thanks Tater)?

This same guy, along with his staff, actually thinks, nay believes he is our new monarch. What is worse is there are some people, nay sheeple who think that is a great idea. Just as there were colonists who were loyal to the British Crown. What a bunch of scumbags, both bunches and possibly our next President. Brings a whole new meaning to 'God help America', now doesn't it?

Yeah ol' what's-his-name is allegedly a University of Chicago Law School professor, but he claims he is going to "rule" starting on day one. I wonder what college he went to which granted him a law degree? Whatever the school, it sure did not teach him about our Constitution. Oh, according to "" he earned "his law degree from Harvard." Remind me to never go to Harvard. The law school obviously doesn't teach very much.

An interesting point is that the University of Chicago faculty page lists him as a "senior lecturer (now on leave)." What? Do you mean to say that what's-his-name lied? That sorta depends on the wording. Kind of like Clinton's parsing of the word "is". In order to clear up any misunderstandings, ha, ha, ha, here in the University of Chicago's own words is how-do-you-say-his-name was or is:

"UC Law School statement: The Law School has received many media requests about Barack Obama, especially about his status as "Senior Lecturer." From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. The title of Senior Lecturer is distinct from the title of Lecturer, which signifies adjunct status. Like Obama, each of the Law School's Senior Lecturers have high-demand careers in politics or public service, which prevent full-time teaching. Several times during his 12 years as a professor in the Law School, Obama was invited to join the faculty in a full-time tenure-track position, but he declined."

So there you have it. Whether how-do-you-say-his-name was or was not a law professor is fully up to you to decide. I can tell you this much — any person who says, or lets a staffer say, he is "prepared to really take power and begin to rule [on] day one" ain't my idea of a law professor let alone someone who should become President of the United States.

In fact he ain't my idea of anything other than garbage.
