What A Difference A Day Makes

I disagree with the Kerry kudos and conciliation-speak that I am reading in the right side of the blogosphere. Even Geraghty has fallen for Kerry's faux sincerity.

This sounds like a joke, but Kerry's concession speech was the best of his campaign.

Kerry Spot reader John notes, "If this guy had shown up 2 months ago, he would have won. Sounds like Bob Shrum's work."

Are you nuts? Monday we were a Bible-thumping, brainwashed Rovian army of brownshirted-Nazi's, feeding the nation's youth into the Iraq hopper for Cheney's Halliburton pals, while throwing our grandparents down the stairs. There was no epithet too vile or image too distorted to describe conservatives and moderates.

If the right has one fatal flaw that puts us at a disadvantage every election cycle, it's manners. So we stand like deer in the headlights unable to react to the sheer nastiness and hatred the left spews. Then Kerry makes an ass-covering, disengenious concession speech and everyone is ready to join hands and sing Kumbayah?


We should be suspicious, very suspicious of Dems bearing peace-pipes. I am not saying we should gloat, but we won, dammit, in spite of a rigged deck,why should we apologize? The blogosphere provided a platform that enabled us to fight the worst media onslaught in living memory. We pushed the DNC's shit back into their faces, fact-checked the MSM and generally refused to accept defeat.

So if you buy the left's "Can't-we-all-just-get-along-for-the-good-of-the-country" schtick, don't be surprised when you're cold-cocked from behind at the next opportunity and I have a very nice, like-new bridge that you can have real cheap.

That's what my wife keeps tellin' me, as I try
to have sensitivity for my sobbing, angry liberal

I guess I need to toughen up.

We can afford to be benevolent toward our adversary in victory as long as we watch our back.

We can have good manners in regular discourse.

However whenever the left tries to mug or coldcock us with their tactics, we should reply with a right hook, a spin kick and a drawn .45 pointed right at their obsenity-spewing mouths.

In metaphor, of course. Like Tom Cruise in Collateral when he confronts the muggers in the alley with his briefcase and Jaime Foxx's wallet.

And we need to have the backbone to pull the trigger , just like they do to us.

We have good manners and that's what the left depends on to take advantage of us.

They must learn that the moment they take the conversation to the bad taste level that they will meet the same in our response.

That's all.

Ayup. Damned straight, Feste. And there's still waayyy to much blue on that map.

Kerry's concession was a nice gesture, and a nice speech - but that's all it was: nice words, empty of real meaning.

Anyone who buys the conciliatory tone from the left right now and gets all dewey eyed really desserves to get cold-cocked when they drop the mask again.
