    • The Attacks On Nord Stream I & II
      Let’s point out the obvious. Russia had no reason to attack its own pipelines. If it doesn’t want gas to go thru them it just turns off the tap. Sabotage to the pipelines weakens Russia’s position, since it will be months before they can offer to turn fuel back on, which they would have wanted to offer during the winter in order to pressure Germany in specif […]

Anglachel’s Mother of All Rants

Just go read Anglachel’s post, When Wishes Come True. Oooo, this one is soo good. It reminds me of Conan the Barbarian’s response when he was asked, “What is best in life?” and he says: “To crush your enemies, see them driven before you and to hear the lamentation of the women” (Actually, this might have been the longest line he had to speak in the whole movie, but I digress)

Anglachel takes Obama and The Gang of Four to task for alienating the loyal Democratic base and describes the outcome. Here’s a taste:

Thus, Dean has painted himself and the party into a corner. The only solution that will be seen as legitimate is a revote of Michigan and Florida, and he is allowing his preferred candidate to block that option. As I’ve said before (dang, but I’m prescient…) if Obama has popular support, he would welcome the revotes. The fact that he is fighting hammer and tongs to prevent this from happening, despite the support of the party leaders, the pundits, the MSM and an alleged huge advantage in cash, tells me that he knows he will bomb. The frontrunner is on his way to being a has been.

To keep from losing everything in November (and I’m beginning to think we may lose control of the Seante at our current rate), Dean and the DNC leadership are trying to beg/cajole/threaten Hillary into conceding the nomination before she becomes any stronger.

Somehow, I don’t think she will.

The end is cathartic. You’ll feel like you just ate some raw meat and want to hear wailing and lamentations from the Obamaphiles. Right after we crush Dean.
