God Bless the National Review

posted by on October 7 at 21:55 PM

Here is the right-wing reaction to the debate, via The National Review:

Well I have gone outside and pulled up my Mcain/Palin sign. This election is over. I will vote for Mcain but I know that come Nov. 5 Obama will be our president-elect.

I feel sorry for Sarah Palin. A once promising career will be permanently connected to the landside loss of John McCain.

I weep for my children and their families.

I am so fucking happy right now.

I weep. Tears of joy. For my cats. And my kids too, I guess. They don't have families of their own yet, so I guess I can't weep for THEM, unless it's for my kids' unborn children, but that's just weird and gets into the whole "when does life begin" morass. Anyway, I weep too. YAY!

Oh, for Chrissake. What a drama queen.

They're trying to fool us into not caring enough to roll out of bed on election day and vote.

That appears to be a reader comment posted to one of NR's blogs, not actual NR content.

But hey-- weep away, bitches.

I can never figure out what it is the upsets Republicans so much about Democrats winning.

In Bill Clinton, they had a solid conservative President who made everyone rich and kept the country in a state of peace.

With Obama, they'll basically get more of the same.

Are they only happy when everybody -- including the vast majority of them -- are utterly miserable?

No, you see, its not about policy to the right- never was. Its all about power baby

@6 Bill Clinton was a communist and a drug addled murderer.

If Obama wins, it will only be because the media is wholly in the tank for him. If you think there is no media bias, then how much discussion of the Democrat Party's direct role in the Fannie/Freddie crisis?

If the media ever did their job, a treasonous Marxist homosexual and muslim like Obama would lose all 50 states. In fact, the Democrat Party would will a relic of history.

If Obama's a homosexual then he's a really shitty Muslim.

Yes, Palin's career is damaged because of her connections to McCain's loss. I really think the names need to be reversed there.

To be fair, that's about how I felt in mid November of 2004, so I can understand the fear, and I do feel a little bit of pity for the people that are actually afraid of Obama. Hopefully after a couple of years when they still have guns, no one has seized their house for "the people", no one has tried to come around tattooing 666 on people's foreheads, etc. etc. everyone will calm down and move from being genuinely fearful to just whiny.

That said, for the rest of us.....:HAPPY DANCE! HAPPY DANCE!

Don't put your dance card around your wrist quite yet, darlings: Gotta get out that and vote, and take some people with you. Nag your lazy, young, elderly and non-motivated friends into voting. Give them rides to the post office (or polling place) if need be. Offer them liquor or sex for the right vote.

Unless you know some dreadful republicans. In that case, commiserate with them, and tell them there's really no point at all in voting. Wear somber clothes on election day, and bring them a Blanc Mange spiked with sominex. Let the sleep peacefully as we make history for them.

Palin? A "promising career?" As what?

The woman couldn't find her own ass with both hands and a flashlight.

Jake, how cruel! I think she'd make a fine cocktail waitress at a three star hotel in a down-market city. After all, they loved her in Omaha!!!!

Posted by Catalina Vel-DuRay | October 8, 2008 7:13 AM

Let me see if I have this right. George Bush is the darling of the right and has basically destroyed America's standing in the world and you weep because his double, McCain, is going to lose the election? The right wing really is fucked in the head.

Posted by Vince | October 8, 2008 7:15 AM

Are you kidding? Palin is NOT going to go away - she's McCain's parting gift to us. Ambition like that doesn't just disappear.

@12 & 14: Catalina, you are still one of my all-time favorite Sloggers. Thank you.

@8: Speaking of REpubLICanS...

did you happen to read the response from the review? "this next month is going to be a long month. lots of things will happen." "WILL HAPPEN" - now, i don't want to sound like a paranoid ark builder, but um ... does someone know something the rest of us don't. it doesn't say "can happen", it says "will happen." do the relics have a crystal ball? or do they already have their october surprise all cued up in the wings?

Posted by Stella | October 8, 2008 8:58 AM

Another wank, I must say. One reader reaction via email doth not "the right-wing reaction" make.

This isn't the first time Mr McCain's read his own political obituary. Anybody not remember June and July of last year, when people were talking about his campaign in the past tense? Gosh darn it, something must a' happened!

As an independent conservative, I'm not in the tank for Mr McCain. But I'd say anybody who sells this man short does so at their own risk.

It's a trap!
