Top Ten Good Things about an Obama Presidency
-Democrats are now 100% accountable and we get to hold them accountable. Iran. Iraq. Bin Laden. North Korea. The Economy. All Democrat problems to solve.
-Four years of “I told you so” privileges with friends and neighbors.
-Sniping from the backbench isn’t exactly leadership but it’s fun.
-Before you marry the good girl you got to date the slutty one and get that out of the way. Obama is our equivalent.
-The conservative agenda would have gone nowhere under McCain. Liberalism’s pendulum was in full ascendancy. Liberalism is the nation’s itch requiring a scratch. After 28 years of center-right politics it was due to happen.
The media gets to relearn how to eat its own. This is important if conservatism is to have a chance in the next election. The Press clearly won this for Obama.
Conservatism needs to learn how to educate the American people. Letting the Bush Admin get bashed, resorting to anti-rich arguments, and not retorting to attacks on “trickle-down” was indicative that our side’s narrative on economics sucks really, really bad.
Obama’s election wipes out the argument for affirmative action. If we can elect a black president I think racism has been effectively mitigated.
We still will likely hold filibuster power in the Senate.
Sarah Palin gets a chance to bolster her record in Alaska before running in 2012. As Thatcher saved Great Britain from socialism, so too will Palin save us from socialism.
