Going Down in Flames

Here's a snippet from Jim Kunstler's latest blog post:
So we now head into the general election. One thing the pundits of the mainstream media seem to miss is how much more room for economic carnage there is in the months remaining. They seem to be laying their current odds on the idea that McCain and Obama are starting on a "level playing field." In fact, McCain is already up to his hips in trouble from his sheer association with the Republican establishment, which will be so badly discredited by the shattered economy that it may actually go the same route as the 19th century whig party and dissolve in a putrid vapor of fecklessness. By November, the Republicans will be viewed as the party that wrecked the nation, and McCain will be in a hole so deep (still on the 20-yard-line by the way) that nobody will be able to see his lips move.

I post this because it made me laugh. If you know me at all, you probably realize that I have no interest in engaging in a Democrats vs. Republicans flame fest (or even a reasoned discussion on that topic). Post your partisan rants if it helps you exorcise your demons. It won't bother or offend me.

Well, this is what I am catching from the old people I hang around with...AKA, my mothers friends...70's or so.
They hate the republicans but they have voted split ticket most of their lives. Republican mostly for the last ten years.
They liked Hilary, but she has been "hard done by."
Obama is TOO YOUNG, eerrr right. Translated half black. Funny isn't it...if you are half black that makes you black. But if you are half white that doesn't make youi white.

I saw several old people at the chili dinner, (and believe me they vote!) saying that the media was making McCain out to be too liberal. So, maybe he was really the best middle path. So there you have it...from a place that matters more than maybe it should when it comes to election years. Jim may be mistaken to feel so confortable about McCains fate.

IMO, It won't happen. Unfortunately, McCain will probably give a strong contest - and may even 'win'.

Haha! "putrid vapor of fecklessness" :-D
