On Monday you could tell that it was the day before a huge election... Hillary played the little girl tears card which served her so well against Obama in New Hampshire.
Radio talkers Hugh Hewitt and Michael Medved have been insisting that "these three" (Romney, McCain, Huck) are stellar candidates for the GOP nomination. The group used to include Rudy G.
Obviously Mike and Hugh have taken leave of their conservative senses.
This may be the biggest lackluster gaggle of candidates (both normal and democrat) ever to throw hats in to a three-ring circus.
Hillary the Wife, Obama the Oprah Candidate, McCain the POW, Mitt From Central Casting and Huck the Whothehellknows.
Go team, fight!
The RNC and the conservative wing of the GOP bear full responsibility for this fiasco.
They let Romney (a neophyte to The Big Campaign) twist slowly, slowly in the wind, allowing the left media to paint him as Mitt The Mormon; attack Rudy, his wife and his mayoral expense account, and marvel at how the circus clown, Rev. Huck, could surprise everyone as a dark horse.
Essentially, the Left news media nominated its darling Maverick, John McCain, succeeding after years off failure.
Game. Set. Match.
Now it's a virtual dead heat between twins... white or white, black or white, male or female, liberal or liberal.
Set aside the war for a moment. Tell me the difference between Mac and "Joementum" Lieberman.
Explain to me why a Republican, let alone a "conservative" would say that Hillary would make a "fine president" or agree to consider abandoning the party and serving on the same ticket with John "I was in Vietnam" Kerry.
Ya got me.
So how did we come to this point in our history where those who would aspire to the Oval office are willing to run to the left or the far left to take this country to ruination?
Because our history--the benchmarks of our founding fathers, our military leaders and hundreds of millions of Americans long deceased who held core values as the paramount virtue--has been hijacked, that's why.
For more than a full generation Americans students have been force fed American history revised to eradicate the greatest achievements and core values that made American the greatest nation in world history.
Here's how it happened.
Our children have been brainwashed to the point of mind-numbed robots, and the academics could not be happier.
Thank your local coven of the teachers' union for the following:
Recently, researchers asked "a diverse group of 2,000 high school juniors and seniors in all 50 states.... "Starting from Columbus to the present day, jot down the names of the most famous Americans in history (other than presidents and first ladies)."
Topping the list was Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman. Three of the top five — and six of the top 10 — are women.
There were three white males, no military leaders, and were it not for Ben Franklin (No. 5) and Edison and Einstein who garnered ninth and tenth place, respectively (losing to Marilyn Monroe) almost nothing of lasting value in American culture was present.
Detect a theme here?
Sam Wineburg, the Stanford University education and history professor who led the study along with Chauncey Monte-Sano of the University of Maryland, says the prominence of black Americans signals "a profound change" in how we see history.
"Over the course of about 44 years, we've had a revolution in the people who we come to think about to represent the American story," Wineburg said.
Uh-huh. So apparently what counts most to leftist academics is how history is "perceived" by millions of minds full of mush, rather than what actually happened.
How we "feel" is weighted more heavily that what we "think".
For what it's worth, when the researchers polled 2,000 adults in a different survey, their lists were nearly identical. To Wineburg, that shows that what's studied in school affects not just children but the adults who help them with their schoolwork.
The ranking is hardly based on merit, and nothing points that out more than a TV huckster and a long-dead actress.
I remain baffled by everything Oprah... weird things happen when you name a girl Harpo-spelled-backwards.
And Marilyn? Easy.... 16-year-old boys like to look at pictures of attractive naked women, or even those in National Geographic.
