Last minute thoughts to follow.
ETA: Rachel Maddow's FANTASTIC opening segment from tonight, Please make it go viral now. It deserves a top-rec-list diary and i hope someone will do it soon.
Admittedly, it's been a long time since i liked anything that Michael Moore wrote here. But then, last week, he came up with this masterpiece. Among many brilliant lines and insights, Moore writes:
And most importantly, the last boot is saved for the black man who probably wasn't born here, definitely isn't a Christian and possibly might be the Antichrist sent here to oversee the destruction of our very way of life. A boot to your head, Obama-devil!
... Two years of a black man who secretly holds socialist beliefs being the boss of them is more than they can stomach. They've been sick to death since the night of 11/04/08 and they are ready to purge.
No one from the MSM will ever dare to say it, even if they think so, otherwise they'll never work in this town again. No one else in Washington is going to touch it with a mile long stick. But Michael Moore said it, and did it brilliantly, so i'm grateful.
I don't blame anyone who is unemployed or lost their home, and they really not in the mood to vote Democrats tomorrow. I can't judge anyone who can hardly bring themselves to get out of bed in the morning, and have very little desire to get out of bed tomorrow of all days, and go vote Democrats.
But this "Republican wave" - how scary, brrrrrr - is not about that. It's not about the "deficit", it's not about "government spending" - they couldn't care less about all this when they were in power. It's not about health care reform or Wall Street reform either. This is about the black man in the White House.
Hitler signs, Stalin signs - always amuses me how those ignorants can't tell the difference - Fox News lies, smears and nastiness, racists emails, "Magic Negro", all that started a long time before President Obama made even one move. Way before health care reform, and even before the stimulus - which not even one economist will argue that it didn't prevent second depression and if anything was too small - it was all a growing reaction to the election of the first black president.
And it's not just the average ignorant teabagger. Their people in Washington are all students of John "that one" McCain. Bone-Head and the rest of the gang just can't stand the sight of a black man calling the shots in this country. Their complete and shameless disrespect for the president of the United States, goes far beyond their regular treatment of a blue president.
So now they managed to tell a big enough lie, scare enough people and control enough media to probably gain many seats tomorrow. The question is are we going to let them. Because yes, this is still about hope versus fear.
And it's about keeping the smiles (President Obama and VP Biden, yesterday in Cleveland):
