Mid-election night thoughts...

At about 7:30PM Pacific time most of the pundits and networks are pretty confidently predicting that Obama will be the next President. In fact they are doing a post mortem on the McCain campaign right now on Fox. I like Fox, but would love to have them eat crow later tonight!

I still am not convinced that it is over, but must admit thanks to Michael Barone's great explanation of exit polling and election returns algorithms, that it doesn't look good.

I have learned that experts are notoriously inaccurate when it come to predicting the future, so we will see. I am not giving up yet.

I can't help but begin to think about a post-election America with Obama as President, and what we will be called upon to do. You think this campaign was grueling? We will need to be prepared to for the fight of our lives against a stacked deck with the fairness doctrine, taxes, hyper-regulation, Military disarmament and international capitulation being the Democrats main ammunition. You think the bail out was out of control? You ain't seen nuthin' yet!

Are you prepared for battle? I am. We'll need to be armed well with facts, commitment, strength and most importantly persuasiveness. We live in the MTV era. Rock star politicians are a requirement now whether you are a Republican or Democrat. To be an effective leader you need knowledge, experience and integrity. To get elected you need charm. Clinton hinted at how important it was to become, but Obama takes it to another level. We have one rock star candidate in Sarah Palin, but need a few more. A hip, 40 year old Ronaldus Magnus would fit the bill.

As is always the case with me, the more the chips are down, the more energized I become. Whether McCain loses tonight or not, I am ready to rock and roll. It's going to take a lot more than a Socialist hangover from the '60's to put a damper on my American dream!

The liberals love to talk about non-partisanship, tolerance and diversity, but be prepared for a very ugly "politically correct" campaign to try to stomp out the last flickering flames of Conservative expression. The cultural icons will do everything within their power to continue to move the political "center" to the left, and marginalize or destroy those who don't go along for the ride. Look at what they tried to do to Joe the Plumber, a man with the audacity to ask a question of Obama the American Press could not or would not.

If you want to know what we are in for, study Saul Alinsky. You will be looking at the owners manual for American politics and culture for at least the next 4 years, if not the next 20.

But... it ain't over until it's over, so let's hope we can do it with an ally in the White House.
