This is a no whine zone. This is a gloat zone as well. Let’s gloat.
Remember Andrew Sullivan? He’s that snake that lives in the Slytherin bathrooms. Sullivan is a reptile who fell to his knees in 2008 to worship Barack Obama in the silliest schoolgirl crush since Olive Oyl took a liking for lumbering Popeye.
Now Sullivan, today’s headline at Drudge, is worried sick for his lovey-poo:
“Did Obama Just Throw The Entire Election Away?That poor reptile (we mean Sullivan). It’s sad when reality takes a bite out of your fat ass. Sullivan is in tears. We here at Big Pink are in tears too – tears of joy!. On Denver Debate Disaster Night we wrote what we repeated the day after: “Last night the country saw the Obama we saw in 2008.
The Pew poll is devastating, just devastating. Before the debate, Obama had a 51 – 43 lead; now, Romney has a 49 – 45 lead. That’s a simply unprecedented reversal for a candidate in October. Before Obama had leads on every policy issue and personal characteristic; now Romney leads in almost all of them. Obama’s performance gave Romney a 12 point swing! I repeat: a 12 point swing.
Romney’s favorables are above Obama’s now. Yes, you read that right. Romney’s favorables are higher than Obama’s right now. That gender gap that was Obama’s firewall? Over in one night [snip]
Seriously: has that kind of swing ever happened this late in a campaign? Has any candidate lost 18 points among women voters in one night ever? And we are told that when Obama left the stage that night, he was feeling good. That’s terrifying. On every single issue, Obama has instantly plummeted into near-oblivion.“
Reptile Sullivan saw a golden calf in 2008. We saw a corrupt, rusted Chicago calf. No one should read or listen to someone like Sullivan who was so wrong. We’re posting about him today simply to gloat:
“How do you erase that imprinted first image from public consciousness: a president incapable of making a single argument or even a halfway decent closing statement? [snip]Hey, we thought calling Obama “arrogant” was racist? We thought Sullivan believed in hope and change”? Sullivan is hopeless though as he thinks up schemes to salvage his rusted calf:
Too arrogant to take a core campaign responsibility seriously. Too arrogant to give his supporters what they deserve.“
Barack is hopeless. I hope these numbers hold a bit longer. I've already declared that if it's close, I will consider dumping Stein and voting strategically by voting for Mitt Romney.
Mitt gets centrist Barack out of the White House. Gets the faux left to stop covering for the drone war and for what's being done to Bradley Manning. Mitt in the White House gives the faux left an enemy to go after instead of a mini-god to protect.
And apparently I don't need to even think twice about that move because Jill Stein's turning her campaign site into Bash Romney and Ryan.
Sorry, Jill, I thought you were the real deal. I thought you were the first Green in years who would run a real presidential campaign and not try to steer voters to the Democratic Party.
Obviously, from you non-stop attacks on Romney and your silence on Barack in the last two weeks, I was wrong.
It's a shame the campaign stopped allowing people to comment (maybe that was the first sign that it wasn't a real campaign?) because I would sound off there if I could.
Jill was supposed to be the real deal. Instead, she's become just another attack dog for the Democratic Party.
If you read the snapshot, you'll see C.I. gives Jill the benefit of the doubt.
I respect C.I. for that. And you know I love her. But I don't give Jill the benefit of the doubt. We were just addressing this cowardly behavior at Third. And now she does it again?
Jill doesn't look very real to me anymore. That's the problem with the Green Party, they never want to fight. And that's why this is probably their last year. 2004, 2008 and now 2012. Three fake campaigns in three presidential cycles in a row.
Next election cycle, I hope to be able to support the Democrats (as I did before Barack). But if not, I'll be looking at the Libertarian Party. Gary Johnson's fought a real fight. In fact, let me copy and paste this from Johnson's campaign site:

I hope those links work. Right now, with Stein, I feel like Ron Paul supporters when Paul refused to use his power at the GOP convention and instead skipped merrily along to the party line.
