Here is my handicapping of the 2008
Yesterday, my buddy asked me "Aren't you scared of
Obama"? Scared, no... not really. The
Illinois Senator is an old school 'redistribute the
wealth from those who earn, to those who do not'
Democrat. I feel like he is the 'devil you know'. Now Al Gore, that guy
scares the shit out of me. He says that blocking
the entrances to coal burning power plants is on an
equal moral footing as staging a sit-in at a segregated lunch
counter in Selma. That's just plain crazy talk.
It's "my secret bodyguard Captain Pajama Shark is
warning me to watch for binary encoded messages in my
Raisin Bran" crazy talk.
am not scared. Just sad really. Remember
that it wasn't an invading army that conquered Rome, it
collapsed under its own weight once the electorate
discovered it could vote itself monies from the
treasury. Entitlements, unfunded mandates, and
unbridled spending have already eroded the foundation of
this great Republic. As a nation we have so lost
focus and taken our eye off the ball. If the
electorate wants to have a knee jerk spasm and elect a
socialist, so be it. So same thing that made me
run away from the Republican Party screaming with my
arms over my head like Kermit the Frog introducing Elton
John is what both candidates are running on: Which
candidate is going to handout more?
In my home state of Minnesota,
Obama holds an 11% lead in the polls. It has been
my contention, which is not scientific, that 8% of the
population that would tell a pollster they will be
voting for Obama will not once they get into a voting
booth. This tells me that while Obama will win, it
wont be by the margin predicted.
The same friend who is scared of
Obama is so sure that he is willing to bet lunch at Taco
Bell that McCain will win. So doing the math on
the polls and running it through the racism filter, I am
predicting an Obama win by 3-4%.
Man...This is going to be like
taking a Chalupa from a Baby.
