Contentions

Unhinged

The Left is losing it. Not the election. Just any semblance of sanity. From one Barack Obama fan we learn, “This is an election about whether the people of Pennsylvania hate blacks more than they hate women.” And these are Democrats, mind you. As for John McCain, the same blogger frets about those white male voters:

[T]he outcome of the general election will depend on whether enough of them vote for McCain. A lot of them will: white men cannot be relied on, as all of us know who have spent a lifetime dating them. And McCain is a compelling candidate, particularly because of the Torture Thing. As for the Democratic hope that McCain’s temper will be a problem, don’t bet on it. A lot of white men have terrible tempers, and what’s more, they think it’s normal.

Then we have a list of 40 journalists who signed a vitriolic letter to ABC complaining about the debate moderators. (It is nice actually to have a list of putative journos who no longer have any claim to objectivity and whose views can be comfortably discounted as spin from the Obama camp.) And to cap it off we have the latest frothing from Michael Moore.

Why all the anger and hostility in support of the post-partisan, post-nasty Agent of Change? Perhaps these supporters assumed Obama would knock out Clinton in Pennsylvania, a result which seems unlikely now. Or perhaps they are worried about all those voters who say they won’t vote for Obama in the general election. Whatever the reason, they seem very, very mad.
