This Time I'm Gloating
Not this time. To hell with quiet reflection and reserved satisfaction, I'm pounding my chest and I'll be thumping my finger on the chests of those who said Bush lied, he stole the 2000 election, he's an idiot, he's ripping up the constitution, and, Michael Moore has some good points. President Bush's overwhelming numbers and the house and senate gains provide ample ground for conservatives to stand on to blow their horns loud and proudly.
What were we up against? Let's start with the media... ABC, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Atlanta Journal and Constitution, PBS, Philadelphia Inquirer, USA Today, BBC, Boston Globe, International Herald Tribune, New Yorker, Time Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Village Voice. These are just off the top of my head, there's more, lots more.
What and who else did conservatism conquer yesterday? Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Madeline Albright, Kofi Annan, Michael Moore, George Soros, Bruce Springsteen, Ivy League Universities and liberal academia, MTV Rock the Vote, P. Diddy's Vote or Die, Barbara Striesand, Hollywood in general, nafarious and biased polling throughout the campaign and right on through to the exit polls, campaign finance reform, liberal 527's, Democratic election fraud, and MoveOn.org
But most importantly the United Nations, France, Germany, Russia, bin Laden and John Kerry were not given any semblance of victory or validation.
And for this resounding defeat of so many enemies it's time for, (as my brother, Dennis, said this morning), a wild- ass dance in the end zone. We've done the Emmett Smith thing in the end zone for too long. He would reach the end zone and calmly drop the ball then jog back to the huddle or sideline as if scoring touchdowns was what his job was. Well, in my opinion it's time to forcefully tell our opponents they're wrong. It's time to turn up the heat on partisan media, Hollywood, and anyone else who sees this country as a negative force in the world. It's time to forcefully marginalize any efforts that erode family values, public education and our legal system. We've got ground to stand on, we've got healthy numbers to back us up and we've got alternative avenues through the internet and talk radio to get our message out.
I'll be polite and considerate. I'll be happy. I'll be proud. And I'll be doing a wild-ass dance in the end zone 'cause we just blew them out in the Superbowl! -WB
