Congratulations To Senator Obama On Winning The Presidential Election
The success of his campaign truly illustrates something we've been told as a child about our great nation: That anyone can grow up to be president. All you need is ambition, determination, and the willingness to....
** break your pledge to not accept private donations so that you can outspend your opponent 6 to 1 with money obtained from dubious sources
** have a compliant and subservient national media applying maximum scrutiny to (and even fabricating stories about) your opponent while sweeping any of your skeletons, gaffes, and glaringly ridiculous propositions under the rug
** promise a mathematically impossible tax-and-redistribution plan designed to turn the election into 4 wolves and 1 sheep voting on what's for dinner
** employ an ethically-challenged "grass-roots" organization to sign up voters who might otherwise miss out on the opportunity to vote for you, such as 2nd graders, dead people, cartoon characters, etc.
...and any millionaire with little-to-no experience or accomplishments can pander to enough people to get elected.
Is this a great country, or what?
