A little over a month and a half ago the world watched with glee as India’s voters buried their leftist parties, including that country’s communist party, under the trash heap of history. India set off an avalanche that is sweeping the globe!
In England, Gordon Brown lost four of his most vicious left wing cabinet members, including the demented British Home Secretary, Jacqui “happy endings” Smith to various scandals. Brown himself barely survived the weekend as opponents from within his own party tried to stage a coup.
The European Parliament probably dealt the left the most humiliating defeat since the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the USSR. Conservatives in France, Germany, Italy and Poland emerged winners in the voting to select the European Parliament’s 736 deputies while the left was sent packing.
In Argentina Old Wise Latino Woman President Christina Fernandez, whose political accomplishments include nationalizing billions of dollars in private pension funds and the country’s top airline, was dealt a swift and unambiguous defeat. Fernandez tried to stave off an anticipated massive defeat by holding the elections four months early. Alas it was in vain for the the results were just as disastrous. Her own husband, former President Nestor Kirchner, couldn’t even win a bid for a seat from Buenos Aires province.
In Hoduras, the country’s leftist president, wanted to change the nation’s constitution. In a move that reminds me of the post presidential musings of the former president Bill Clinton, the Honduran President Manuel Zeleya attempted to find a way to get himself eleced more often than the constitution allows. The military, at the behest of the country’s judicial branch, including the Supreme Court, with full approval of the Honduran Congress, arrested the leftist would be dictator Zeleya and unceremoniously deposited him in Costa Rica.
Then of course there is Iran. The left has successfully managed to convince the world that so called “religious governments” are somehow “right wing”. Nothing is further from the truth. The centralized planning lack of freedom, and persecution of it population that characterizes the Mullah rued Iran g is identical to that experienced by the hundreds of millions of people that were subjugated to the leftist communist and regimes world wide. Iran’s street battles are evidence that freedom and individual rights are universal. Further proof that the right identifies more with the struggle of the Iranian people is the unforgivable attitude that the Obama administration has adopted towards the murderous Iranina regime and its leaders.
Virginia Gubernatorial Race
Least you think that this is a ‘foreign’ phenomena allow me to draw you attention to the Virginia Gubernatorial race. While the general election is still months away, the liberals in Virginia already lost!
That’s right, the liberals got their collective butts kicked up to their shoulder blades even in the Democrat primaries. In a field that included former Clintonista “fac totum” Terry McAluff,” the punk” as Rush so aptly named him, the one lone self professed “Conservative Democrat”, R. Creigh Deeds, won and won big. Deeds got almost twice the number of votes that Terry “the punk” McAulife did and over twice that of the third place finisher. As if that’s not bad enough, for the lib socialists, the republican candidate is leading in the polls by over 10%.
The people of Bulgaria voted out the Socialists and gave the conservative party a clear mandate to bring the country out of the economic quagmire which has seen its per capita GDP drop to last place in the European Union.
After violent and massive protests which included students raiding the parliament building the ruling communist party was forced to at least go trough the motion of recounting the votes before declaring themselves the winner.
After day there is till no clear winner however as of right now, with all the precincts having been counted the incumbent Democrat party is ahead of the Socialist by about 1% of the votes. That an incumbent Democrat Party , in this case the conservative party, can hold its own and probably win, in the face of a very adverse economic climate, is vivid proof that the people of Albania want to turn their back on the socialist agenda and join the European Union.
Cheney Vs Pelosi
Further proving that the country may have had enough of the liberals the latest Gallup polls show that Cheney , fresh off the proper spanking that he delivered to Obama, has seen his popularity shoot up higher than Pelosi’s.
I find it embarrassing for us as a country that the Drivel-by-Media has managed to bamboozle the populous into thinking that a man as thoughtful, serious , intelligent and through as Cheney is should even be on the same playing field as Pelosi but maybe we are coming around. As for Pelosi, what can we say? The woman can stick the collective foot of her entire constituency hip-deep down her throat and the media will never do anything other than bow in adulation. That in spite of all of that Cheney is polling ahead of her shows that America has finally realized that indeed Pelosi’s Botox has penetrated her cranium and all she can do now is belch gas so noxious it can make the most constipated bovine jealous.
Obama’s polls are still up, not that much but up none the less. Note however that even Oprah’s The One had to silently, like a thief in the night, order US forces to “Mirandize” terrorists in Afghanistan. Even the charlatan from Chicago knows that if he did this in the light of day, say maybe announce it in his Cairo’s speech, his poll numbers would drop faster than Pelosi’s face once the Botox wears off. The left is on the run, their disastrous policies are already coming back to bite them, if only the Republicans would find a leader with a back bone. ( Instead we got Michael “de facto” Steel)
