On the day after the presidential election in 2008 we asked “So what is next?” We answered that question by saying:
“As Americans, as Democrats, some as former Democrats, we hold Obama’s feet to the fire.”
Read our complete answer from that day to more fully understand how correct we have been. We said to the Obama Hopium guzzlers that “they will soon learn they are not part of the “we” in “we won”. We told the Hopium Guzzlers they “will soon be presented with the fine print of Obama’s promises. They will soon read Obama’s legal escape clause…. Like with FISA, Obama will soon forget all those campaign promises and crib drown them in a sea of flowery words and say “it can’t be done now”.”
But it was not just Obama that we knew had to be exposed. Also in need of disinfectant are the theories and tactics and crackpot ideas of people behind Barack Obama. We knew it was necessary to rid ourselves of Obama and Obamaism.
It’s not just Obama that must removed from the body politic. We also have to remove the hypocrites and crackpots that enabled him.
When we declared that the next president had to be a “fighter” not a naive sloganeer the counterargument from Obama and his army of Hopium Guzzling hypocrites and crackpots was that we needed a “uniter not a divider”. Today James Carville repeated our argument when he said, “if Hillary gave (Obama) one of her balls, they’d both have two.”
Again to e-mails about Desperate Housewives. Bree has a lot of fans and appears to be the favorite of readers of this site. As I said yesterday, I do like Bree; however, it's been a real adjustment for me to get used to Marcia Cross as anything other than Kimberly because that was such a defining role (on Melrose Place).
After Bree, the most popular character is Susan. (That would probably be my pick.)
Vanessa didn't do so well, Vanessa Williams, with Renee but most of you noted her, noted you liked what she did but that she rarely got time to do anything on the show. And I understand that completely. I am worried that Vanessa may be just window dressing and it will be like the 80s when people got all excited about Diahann Carroll joining Dynasty only to wait and wait for Dominique to get a real storyline.
Lynette is the most disliked character -- by my e-mails -- and a lot of you wrote you agreed with me regarding how she's treating Susan.
Most popular guy on the show?
For readersit's Tom or Carlos.
For me it's Brian Austin Green and I was surprised no one mentioned him.
I really think he adds a great deal to the show.
Most of the time, Tom's scene are not really needed. They exist to glorify Lynette. But Brian Austin Green plays a real character and I just think he's doing a great job.
I also love Carlos. I don't mean I like him, I mean I love him. If Carlos came up to me and said, "Betty, let's go out on a date," I wouldn't say, "What about Gabby?" I would rush off with him without any need for talking. He's a very sexy man.
I don't care for Susan's husband (and I'm sorry I'm forgetting his name -- I've only been watching the show since the start of this season). I just felt like she deserved something better.
As somone who knew Terri first for Lois & Clark, I would hope when the show winds down, they find a way to sneak Dean Cain into a few episodes.
Oh, one e-mailer said she found Paul "very sexy" and wondered if she should be embarrassed? Please no. It's fantasy. You go for what you want in your fantasy.
