Post Election Thoughts…The Last Salvo or REALITY BITES

~~By Grail Guardian

There will never be a female President of the United States. There. I said it. Ladies, go home and grab your burkas and start cooking dinner for your man and popping out babies. You will never have equal pay for equal work, you will never be considered competent or capable at anything you ever do, and you stand no chance of ever getting anywhere unless it’s to a soccer or hockey game to cheer your (male) children on. Of course the laws will be wide open to allow you to abort female children so you don’t have to sully the landscape with them at all anymore.

How do I know? Because before even half the nation’s votes were tallied tonight, not only were all the major networks calling the race for Barack Obama, but the pundits are already discussing how Sarah Palin was John McCain’s downfall. Pundits attempting to defend her popularity with statistics were shot down on Fox News. That’s it – it’s over. You will not see another female Presidential candidate taken seriously in this country in our lifetimes. We’ll be lucky if we continue to see women continue to hold seats in the Senate and House after tonight. Female Governors? Forget about it. Palin won’t be re-elected there, because in spite of the fact that Alaska loved her (90% approval rating) just 4 months ago, she has been trashed and is now persona non grata in her own state courtesy of the Chosen One.

Hillary Clinton will lose her Senate seat in 2012. Barack Obama had determined that before she surrendered her fight for the Democratic nomination, and all the pundits are hammering how he “beat the Clinton machine”. She is toast. But frankly, that’s OK with me tonight. As far as I am concerned, Hillary is one of the top reasons that Barack Obama was able to destroy the United States Constitution and insinuate himself into the Presidency. She has lost my respect and she has lost my vote. She bears a huge responsibility for Obama’s victory. She gave up on America to save her career. She sold out her constituents and supporters for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver, and she will have to live with that for the rest of her life.

So here are my top reasons for the desecration and destruction of the Constitution of the United States of America:

Karl Rove: The Republican strategist was neck deep in foisting Obama on an unaware America. After his manipulations to get and keep George W. Bush in the White House, he pulled off the ultimate hoodwink by clandestinely switching sides and getting the most unelectable man in politics elected on literally no platform. His uncontrollable glee while watching the returns confirmed for me that he had more than just a casual involvement in the victory. I’m sure he is now convinced that he is the most powerful man in the world.

Hillary Clinton: She spent the primary convincing us how unqualified Obama was to be POTUS and how she would never quit fighting for the American people. After all is said and done, I believe history will prove her correct on the former point. After “suspending” her campaign and humiliating herself and her 18 million supporters at the Democratic convention, she fulfilled her promise to “work my heart out” and campaigned at full tilt for Obama till the very end and convinced a painful number of her supporters that Obama was a suitable replacement for her. Rather than stand on principle and speak out against Obama’s Constitutional ineligibility to serve as POTUS, she knowingly and willingly aided and abetted the criminal activities of Obama and the DNC.

Main Stream Media: Of course one of the biggest reasons for the destruction of the United States of America and life as we know it is the Main Stream Obamedia. I cannot adequately convey my disgust with them, but let’s face it; they created a President. We have allowed them to decide a Presidential election for the third time in a row, and there is no stopping them now. Plan on spending the rest of your lives (and money) on whatever crap they decide to sell you, whether it be political candidates, lousy programming, toothpaste, or male enhancement products. They bought the soul of America with infomercials and “reality” shows that don’t vaguely resemble reality. It was the Bargain of the Century.

Fox News: “Fair and Balanced” reporting was next to impossible to find this election season as MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, and ABC immediately suited up for Team Obama during the primaries. Before the GE race started in earnest, Fox appeared to be the only source of coverage that wasn’t totally biased in favor of Obama. It turned out that was a sham. The first to start fawning over Obama was the shameless Bill O’Reilly. His disgust with John McCain overruled his whatever journalistic instincts he had, and he threw the race in order to feebly protest the people having chosen McCain as the Republican nominee. The rest of the network quickly followed suit with only a few exceptions (Megan Kelly stands out), and by election night they were quicker to call the race for Obama than nearly anyone and spent all their post-coital analysis slamming McCain for having has the cajones to even consider running in the first place, nonetheless with a woman on the ticket. In the end, it’s tough to decide if they were influenced by owner Rupert Murdoch’s endorsement of Obama or were just trying desperately to keep a luke-warm candidate from embarrassing the party. Either way, they garnered millions of cable viewers based on their supposed impartiality, then proceeded to join in the mass brainwashing, with unparalleled gusto by the last week of the campaign.

The Republican Party: In a year when the Republicans had virtually no chance in hell of taking the White House, true conservatives “allowed” the public to nominate John McCain in what they though was a throwaway election. Imagine their surprise when McCain actually started to show some signs of life (and without them)! After the base was reinvigorated by the brilliant announcement of Sarah Palin as McCain’s Vice Presidential nominee, the party had 2 choices: support the centrist McCain and try with gusto to steal the White House from the Democrats in a year that it was all but guaranteed to be theirs, or sit back and do nothing in quiet protest of the likelihood of a McCain victory. The party decided as an entity to do the latter, and the sheeple of the right within the party followed suit, complaining that he wasn’t really their man and they’d rather give the White House to the Dems than suffer losing their control of the party from the radical right. The party that a few short weeks before had looked like heroes for putting a woman on the ticket after the brutal ravaging of Hillary Clinton wound up looking like misogynists; campaign leaks called Palin a “rogue” and “out of control” in efforts to prevent her from seeking further national office in the future. In the end, it was not the leadership of the party or McCain, but the spineless conservative members who tanked an election and gave up control of Congress rather than let a woman near the White House.

The Democratic Party: Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Donna Brazile, Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brezinski and other Democratic leaders colluded, long before the start of the 2008 Presidential campaign, to use radical tactics to steer the party to the far left and overthrow the legitimate government of the United States. They selected a young, unknown freshman Senator from Illinois with literally no history and molded him into their dream candidate. Their plan to use race as a means to energize the African American voter base and intimidate whites into voting out of guilt and fear dripped of cynicism and hatred for America. The one obstacle that stood in their way was popular front-runner Hillary Clinton. With unprecedented viciousness, the DNC and Obama campaign launched an all out misogynistic attack on Clinton, accompanied by charges of racism against her, husband Bill Clinton, and literally all of her 18 million supporters. Suddenly empowered by the report-nothing media, they started to publicly break their own rules, change rules midstream, change and assign votes cast to their chosen candidate, and lie about virtually everything. Once their ravaging of Clinton brought her to her knees, they thought they were golden, until John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. Unequipped to handle the public’s adoration of the Alaska Governor, they trashed Palin with lies, innuendo, and false charges which were all lustily covered by the media. Their destruction of everything female in this country now stands complete, and sadly I know many women that voted Democratic yesterday, probably a straight party ticket. When all is said and done, it will be shown that the Democratic brand is nothing more than the flip side of the people that brought us the corrupt Republican brand of George W. Bush.

The Socialists: I won’t spend time right now going into repeated detail about the likes of William Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn, Khalid al Mansour, et al. Let it be enough to say that an organized Socialist movement that started smoldering in the 1960s burst into full flames this year and will soon sweep this nation like wildfire. Their efforts were deliberate, domestic terrorism and I’m quite sure that Timothy McVeigh is smiling like mad from his platform in hell.

Mob Rule: You can include the illegal activities of ACORN in this category or the one above – take your pick. Angry blacks, agitated to the brink of race war by the Obama machine, and young white college types determined to put a black man (any black man – with man being the operative word) in the highest office in the land to assuage their white guilt, threatened to riot, bullied opponents mercilessly online, and even intimidated other voters while standing in line to vote by discussing the riots that would ensue if Obama lost. Never underestimate the bullying of thugs both physical and psychological. I also include trolls in this category, because without their relentless assault on literally every website that ever posted even 1 word in opposition to Obama, this victorious annihilation of all common sense and decency would not have been possible. Pat yourselves on the backs, Psy Ops Warriors! Job well done. There will be posts for all of you in the new Civilian Police Force, dragging PUMAs off to re-education camps, so the fun isn’t nearly over yet.

“4th Wave” Feminists: Never underestimate the power of women defiling other women in this coup d’etat. Names like Nancy Pelosi, Donna Brazile, Claire McCaskill, Arianna Huffington, Erica Jong, Alice Germond, Peggy Noonan, Maureen Dowd, Oprah Winfrey, and literally every woman in Hollywood leap to mind in this category at first blush, but let’s not take the credit away from the invisible everyday “feminist”. I’m talking the ones that cried “It’s not that I don’t want a woman President, I do. Just not that woman!” and “I just can’t believe they picked Sarah Palin. That woman isn’t qualified to be President!” They did more to demoralize and frustrate the efforts of every woman in this nation than we have seen in decades. As I stated at the outset, these women (the type who live merely to find men and have no sense of self outside their relationships) have ensured that I shall not live to see a female President of the United States of America. Perhaps it makes them feel more powerful in their own meaningless lives, but they are traitors to us, to themselves, and to this Republic. They have played a vital role in pushing back the clock to roughly the 1920s as far as Women’s Rights are concerned. And I will not be able to laugh or say I told you so when they realize the aftereffects of what they have done.

The American People: Ultimately, the blame must lie with those who did nothing or not enough to stop this decline during this and the previous 5 administrations. I count myself in the latter category. I apparently awoke too late to stop the juggernaut of the New World Order. I fought like mad at the end (during the last year), but like most of America I was asleep at the wheel when people like both George Bush 41 & 43, Reagan, Carter, and even Bill Clinton steered this nation towards the slippery slope that it is on today. I watched and either complained or ignored as our liberties were slowly eroded. I bristled at the overt actions, but was easily assuaged back to my complacency when adjustments were made to allow my comfort level to return. I sold my country out for the ability to buy PCs, cell phones, SUVs, bigger houses, designer clothing, “organic” foods, and other such frivolities. I got angry and excited at an unseen enemy when my handlers in the media told me it was time to do so. I ranted about Global Warming and going Green, signed up for an HMO that had nothing whatsoever to do with Health Maintenance or even getting better when I was sick or injured, and dug deep into my pockets to help others less fortunate than I around the world when disasters struck and even remained silent when I had to do it for my own countrymen in the Hurricane ravaged south after Katrina and other storms showed that our government was unwilling and incapable of helping our own in time of need, regardless of how many tax dollars they had paid into the system. I kept silent. I averted my eyes. I deafened myself to the sure sounds of corruption and moral decay. And I turned off my feelings for my fellow Americans long enough for them to become so very angry that they would lash out at me in fury to destroy America as payment for my complacency. And for that, I am truly sorry America. I have failed you.

  3. There’s not much left to say, ia. You covered it well.

    N.B. Women went for Obama. They screwed themselves.

    Right now I don’t like women very much.

  4. Here it is in a nutshell–

    Palin–woman governor–not experienced, an INSULT

    Tim Pawlenty–

  5. I should have finished reading your entire diary before I posted the above, ia.

    But it would’ve been difficult to reply so quickly through the tears.

    I hadn’t cried till I read all of this. Thank you. I need to mourn.

  6. Millions and millions of women gave media and Obama permission to trash and demean women. They gave it with their vote. They threw away the rights of their daughters to elect a misogynist man.

    I don’t know when I have ever been so disgusted. Mad, yeah, often. Disappointed, that too. But never have I ever felt such disgust with others of my gender.

  7. I’m sorry. This was you, GG. I should’ve known.

  8. Wow. Amazing insight. This says everything. I am going to save this post. This is the most complete narrative of everything that has gone on. This waking up has been so painful. I see everything differently now. I was in a freaking cocoon for most my life – all the while thinking I was on top of everything — clear in my thinking and observations. What a joke — I was sleeping and getting played the whole time.

    Obama said those who don’t “get” him are just cynical. After this past year – he don’t know cynical. I am beyond cynical. This is a freaking game to these people. All of the beautiful words and thoughts (and blood spilled) to bring this country into being are a joke to these people. I see the US is heading into dark times. Total self-generated too. But, most people will be wringing their hands and crying “WHY!”

  9. I feel every words of you, because they are like my own words. I can’t express my disappointment, my unbelieve, my sorrow and most of all my pain. I feel also sorry for Sara Palin. But, I always know, that a ” smart” is a inconvenient one. So, Sara, be proud. You frightened those around you with your intelligence. My anger is going toward the Clintons. Shame of them. They sold their soul , everything they work for, for a hand of” nothing”. In my opinion. the ‘captain” will never abandon his/hers ship. Hillary did that with no any remorse. I disdain her attitude in my name and for those 18 million women who voted for her..

  10. IA — I just so completely share all your sentiments. And this is so brilliantly written too.

    I am just so utterly disgusted with the Dem Party and all feminists who supported Obama.

    I have disassociated myself from all liberal and so-called feminist orgs.

    After a sleepless night due to the gunshots going off all night long in my neighborhood I am also through with this part of town. My hubby and I are moving as soon as we can next summer. We decided last night that when the economic policies inevitably fail next year, there will be riots in the streets. This is why Obama spent all last week back peddling his promises.

    Did anyone notice his “deer in the headlights” look? Both me and hubby thought he looked angry and had a “What the Hell do I do now?” look on his face. It was not inspiring to see this when Obama should have been busting with exuberance.

    What the hell are we in for?

    I hope you are planning on keeping your blog.

  11. Awwwwww GG, you said it all. I told Papoose at Uppity some of the things you listed above, why I cared about American politics. Well said GG

  12. Is it just me, or is everyone in moderation?

  13. […] Post Election Thoughts…The Last Salvo or REALITY BITES Because before even half the nation’s votes were tallied tonight, not only were all the major networks calling the race for Barack Obama, but the pundits are already discussing how Sarah Palin was John McCain’s downfall. … […]

  14. Grail Guardian,

    You have said it all. Where do we go from here? Do we stay under the bus, or do we start driving the bus? I say we refuse to let them pigeonhole us – give them a little grief. The first step is to pay close attention to the people Obama surrounds himself with in the White House. He professes change, then let’s criticize him loudly everytime he appoints one of the status quo.

    Colin Powell wants to be Secretary of Education. What has he ever done to qualify him for this position? Lying through his teeth at the U.N.? Or perhaps knifing a true military heroe by sucking up to a nobody in hopes of a cabinet position?

    His idea of change is appointing people like the old has-been Joe Biden. Where is the change in that?

    It’s the same old run around. Say anything, do anything, no matter how low down to keep a qualified woman from the White House. You can’t give a strong woman a chance to show you noodle spined male animals that we are smarter than all of you put together.

    Hillary cooked her own goose. She doesn’t deserve to be re-elected to the senate. She helped the downward slide of America by her traitorous actions in campaigning for a candidate that she knew wasn’t qualified under the Constitution to be POTUS. She put her personal ambitions above her country.

  15. Grail –

    While I don’t agree with everything in your analysis – there is a lot of it – I admire your passion and feel your angst. Maybe agony is a better word.

    I’m most pained by the treatment of women in this election. I go way back to the beginning of the third wave of feminism. I’ve been distraught about how the movement veered so far off to the left in the late seventies. In this election, all my fears “came home to roost.”

    Young women today seem clueless about feminism because it is such a rigid elitist ultra liberal club that hardly anyone other than a university professor in the northeast, or Berkley, can qualify as a “feminist.”

    I’m ashamed of the feminist leadership for their attacks on Palin. Pro-life or not, the woman shows a wonderful love for women and women’s accomplishments and seems to glory in other women’s successes.

    I am passionately pro-choice, but it’s time to change feminism to be more inclusive and not bound by that litmus test.

    Liberal feminist leaders set the table in this election for the attacks against Palin. They basically lifted the ban on sexism and misogyny and gave blanket permission to the MSM and the Obama campaign to trash Palin with no mercy. In fact, they led the charge.

    They were as guilty as the Obama thugs at the caucuses by verbally herding women into Obama’s arms – in spite of his gross misogyny, in spite of his unapologetic and smug male-domineering taunt that “they’ll come back.”

    And he did nothing to get them back other than depend on feminist leaders and Hillary Clinton to bring them to him. I shudder to think what the eventual psychological analysis of that will be.

    The whole thing befuddles me. It will take a while to sort out the damage done to the women’s movement. It will take decades to undo the damage this election will do to the country.

    I’m optimistic that the press will tire of swooning over Obama now that he is alone on the stage with no opponents to flail. Nonstop love stories about a political figure can get boring quite quickly. The MSM is in the business of selling sensation, after all, not news or facts. I’m betting on the long-awaited vetting of Barack Obama to start within six months.

    At least the thought gives me hope.

    Thanks for your post.

  16. You have searingly captured exactly how I feel.
    Tectonic shifts have just occurred overnight…I hope many get to read this post.

  17. LISABONA~~~ Glad to see you back! I hope you liked how your post appeared….IT GOT A HUGE RESPONSE!!!!

    Thank you for letting me post it here at IA!!!!

  18. Grail: Thanks for such a wonderful and heart felt article. I concur with you on every point. I feel devastated today. I feel even worse than when Hillary conceded. Its like a death, such a bottomless pit of despair and not knowing what to do to lift up out of it. I mourn for my country. I mourn for the democratic party. I mourn for my grandchildren. I mourn for the American people. This is the first post I have made today because I just don’t have the steam right now to do any better. I will take a few days off and see if time will help me somehow deal with this assault on reason brought to us by the undemocratic party, Soros and the complicit press and Americans who truly did not care enough to vet this fraud.

  19. LindaA1 @ 11:44:

    “…he did nothing to get them back…”

    And they went back anyway. THEY threw US under the bus, right along with Sarah Palin.

    What they don’t realize, but will soon learn, is that the bus is rolling and they’re in the middle of the lane.

  20. Grail,

    I’m sorry, I gave kudos to IA instead. Please forgive. Your rant was AWESOME

  21. GG ~
    I need to reread your post. I had to quickly read it as I am at work, and in a hurry as always.

    I am in such agreement with your writing. You and IA and Marge and American Lassie seem to always say what is in my heart or on the tip of my tongue. I find myself mouthing your words when I am with others. (and not always giving credit – my apologies)

    thank you for posting here.

  22. Grail, I should tell you that I read your entire post aloud to my spouse. It was written so coherently, so much in tune with my own thinking, that I got through it without stumbling once, till I got to the last two sentences. That was when I burst into tears. I never did get them out.

    This was one for the ages.

  23. Thanks to all for the kind words. I guess the reason it struck a chord is because it was basically the accumulation of years of emotion and a sort of coming of age for those of us in the PUMA movement.

    I would like the thank GRL for moderating the site today. I know it takes longer to post, but I requsted she do it to provide a sort of a safe haven for us for a bit while we regroup and get our legs back under us.

    It has been a privilege to post here, and I want to publicly thank GRL again for allowing me to share this experience with all of you. Don’t worry – I’m not planning on going anywhere (although I may need a day or two to catch up on my sleep). I believe that we need to continue the fight, and continue to cry “Bull” when we see it. But it has been such a pleasure to share my pain and passion with so many like-minded friends. Thank you all for your support and camaraderie! And most importantly, keep the faith! Good shall triumph over evil, and we shall all rest easier knowing that we have been part of the good fight!

    Vive la revolucion!

  24. I’m blushing, Grail!!! Needless to say, I return the love!
    And I’m already working a little post for tomorrow…a quick wrap-up of a few things, sort of like a “midweek” roundup….

    The big thinking will be up in a few days….can’t wait to finish my thoughts on Susan Greenfield….WHO??

  25. Well. that just started me crying all over again. I said the very same thing to my husband this morning- there will never, ever be a woman President of the United States- ever.

    I too feel as if I have failed my fellow citizens- I feel I should have talked to more people, found the blogosphere before this year, written more letters to my elected officials, made more calls, etc etc etc. I saw the deterioration of country starting a way back in the Reagan regime and have not done enough to stop it.

    My country, my country- I weep for this land and for We, The People.

  26. Good post, but I am not going to give up on a woman being president. I am refocusing my blog towards that end and I am going to start NOW to fight the sexism and misogyny that is sure to rear its ugly head when Palin runs in 2012.

  27. Today is the high-water mark of the Obama presidency. Come January, he will have to govern; make tough decisions, deal with reality, you know, all those things he’s spent most of his lifetime avoiding. The KoolAid drinkers will be eagerly anticipating their tax cuts, not to mention the lowering of the oceans and such. They will be in competition with the other grasping self-interested parties who think Barack owes them something. But the economy will leave very little to distribute and many will go away empty handed and bitterly disappointed. It will not be pretty when the public finds out what’s in the box is not what the salesman showed them at the store. So, everyone enjoy the celebration now; it’s all down hill from here.

  28. Hillary or Bust,

    While my hopes have been dashed by the last year’s incredible events, I am still up for a fight! My only pre-requisite the next go-round will be that I want a candidate that is running because she is a woman first and a politician second (or somewhere even lower on the food chain)!

    I’ve just added your site to my personal blogroll, and will watch your fight with relish!

    Proud Military Mom,

    I really hadn’t let out my emotions, and then I came here and real the comments this afternoon and the tears gushed so hard they started to impede my vision. Catharsis is very necessary- we have been through hell and back, and we need to release the pent-up anger and frustration. I think all of us here weep for this great country, and as long as we do there will be real hope for us all.

    Never forget what America stands for, and let us never take our eyes off the ball again. Not even for a second!

  29. Fueled by Randomness…I agree completely with your comment that this is Obama’s high mark.

    As the expectations are dialed down and reality sets in, people will be disappointed. Shelby Steele said at the beginning of the year and I’m sure he will be right…

  30. I was sobbing so loudly, when McCain made the final speech. It was such a heartbreaking scene to see an hones/Patriotic/experienced disappointment man being rejected for offering his humbled service to the people of USA and the world. I cried for the future of the american people!!!

    GG – I am not an american, even!!! I cried for the missed-opportunity that american people failed to elect the honest, patriotic and most experienced Presidential Candidate of this election, packed with reformer like Sarah Palin. I cried when I saw McCain’s & Palin’s faces of deep disappointment and then conceding graciously to defeat. A missed-opportunity to have them correct all the wrongs in Washington and in this country. They are not perfect, but they’re the right team to lead. Something is serious wrong with the way most of these voters think!!!

    I cried and still cried when I read your post 6 hours ago. I felt helpless because I couldn’t do a damn thing to help PUMAs and McCain ticket to win this election, and because of where I come from. I cried, because I didn’t do enough!!! I cried because Hillary turned her back on 18+ million supporters. I hope Hillary can sleep at night, when Obama lead this country to despair. I fear it is all the way downhill from here on, not only for USA but for the rest of the world.

    Economy??? Seem the best reason to vote for Obama. Right? Wrong!!!

    Look at the stock markets, watch it carefully – that would be the first indicator that the world doesn’t trust Obama’s win. I fear USA will loose more than ever economically. Some of my friends who are now US citizens, are thinking of coming back to their country of origin. They no longer feel secured financially because they don’t trust that Obama can succeed on the “change” he promised. Many of your past Presidents who promised change had came out a total failures. Obama’s economic manifest is set to look like socialism. And socialism is not your kind of democracy. And America will cease to become the land of the free.

    GG – don’t give up!!! McCain used to say: Fight with me! Fight with me! Fight with me!

    He didn’t mean it – like going to war(s). What he meant was: Help him put everything that’s wrong in USA right first, reform, reform, reform = checks and balances!!!, find ways to achieve peace and prosperity for all. Fight the corruptions that seemed to bog down your economy, help those who are unable to get started by themselves excel. Help the sick, the poor get access to proper healthcare. Cut unnecessary spendings. Live within you means. That’s what he wanted to do.

    Dang I still cry now (sulk). I know it’s not my business to have any say in who the american people elect. But I also know this:-

    When America sneezes, the rest of the world catches cold!!!

  31. Joey,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I have read your comments on several sites over the past weeks, and know that your concern is genuine. I appreciate it.

    Don’t feel that your opinion doesn’t matter – you are right about our connection to the rest of the world. I only wish we had been able to convince other Americans of what Obama represents to the rest of the world.

    All I can say is we did all we could do, and the rest of this play is out of our hands for now. There are still several weeks until Obama is actually elected by the Electoral College and confirmed by the House of Representatives. Our system is odd, but it does allow time for the Supreme Court to intervene (which is my hope against hope).

    After that, it will be up to us to hold our government’s feet to the fire from here on out.

    Incidentally, to anyone reading comments on other sites from trolls that are calling the PUMA movement dead and claiming that we failed – don’t believe them for a moment on either count! We are alive and at least medium-well, and as far as those quoting how many PUMAs voted for Obama I would ask this:

    How the hell do you quantify the votes of an organization whose existence has been denied by the media, the Obama campaign, and the Democratic party?

    People quoting that are full of crap! The true figure to concentrate on is how many Republican voted in this election. I read today that their turnout nationally was a full 10% lower than the 2004 election. That’s a staggering number, and shows that the arrogance of both parties is to blame for the sate we are in. Rather than dirty themselves voting for McCain, who wasn’t conservative enough for them, the party turned America over to the Socialists. Nice work.

  32. Awe inapiring post. I have been searching tonight for some closure, a mourning place so to speak, and found it here.

    I never wondered whetehr my intense support of Hillary and then Sarah was only gebder politics; I truly beleive they excelled. However I have been very disappointed in Hillary’s extreme over the top campaigning for Obama. That was just uncalled for.

    Most important point takeaway in your post, and as an AA woman I feel it already, the Obama campaign and jealous women have made it harder for their sisters to be respected, let alone valued.

    Something good must come of this.

  33. well this election, unfortunately is over & done with. Time to figure out what to do next. One small comfort (if you can call it that) is when the economy finally hits the fan sometime next year (not that I really want to live through that, but it’s a market correction & it’s going to happen regardless) Barky will be holding the bag & that couldn’t happen to a more appropriate person. There’s only one place he can go from here & that’s down. Should be kind of fun watching his High Holiness knocked off his box while he’s prancing on the world stage.

  35. aawwwww GG, now you make cry again!!!

    Never thought you noticed I was all over the PUMAs’ blogspheres. Don’t ask me how I got into this PUMAland because only God knows. Ok…I wanted the truth late last year, looking for truth about all your presidential party nominees. I typed “AUDACITY OF HOPE”. Guess what???” Audacity of Hipocracy” came up among the web searches. Oneday, I looked at the websites attached fully in Jan. ’08. And found IA-GRL, lead me to NQ and Ms UW, TD…and the list goes on. But I kept IA website as Home Page till now. And we are about 12000 miles + apart, yet I look forward to reading most the PUMAs blogs everyday. First six months I was just criss-crossing across PUMAs & MSM…I found some things about Obama & his associations…repeated over and over again..telling the same stories, never misses a heartbeat. And I watched Obama thru world TV streams…studying his personality, movements, the evil smiles, the anger, the lies and the arrogance. The cold eyes, and the thick lips, the thuggery style he waved his hands…and his face expression made me shudder with fear for the people of America. Still…….. I kept my mouth shut till 6 months ago…I couldn’t stand it no more, I forced myself to watch Fox News. For 5 years, I have turned off FNC because I thought they are Bush’s cronies, pundits and bias and unbalanced. There he was: Sean Hannity. He said: Journalism is dead in this country. How wrong I was all these years about FNC. I knew then, Hillary will loose the primary.

    I used to think that Democartic Party is the epitome of democrary whereby, your institutions and constitutions were written and practised. But these past 8 years, it has been worse than where I am now. We looked up to your examplary virtues in all that’s good in life since our independence from British Colony in 1957. Your country and mine have trade agreement, human relations and we prospered in the 90s. That’s why I supported Hillary candidacy, not because she’s a woman, but because I thought she’s the right person to lead your country. When she stumped for Obama after being trashed right, left and center by his surrogates and the media, I was angered, confused and felt betrayed. 18 million of her supporters were brushed aside and they were forgotten (hope it’s not true)… I was disgusted because she’s for the party and not her country. And for that she lost alot of respect and some of mine. Half of USA has been sold to Chicago thugs and bought by socialists. That’s why I mourned so hard for true democracy. God Bless America.

    GG, I hope we PUMAs are wrong, yunno. I hope Obama will bring peace and prosperity, and change things that are bad to better situations.

  36. I agree — there NEVER EVER will be a women President.

    And it is doubtful that women will ever have parity in the Senate or Congress. Any forward movement for women is gone.

    Also AAs will not make any more gains — their time has come and gone. And I could care less — 95% of the AAs are r@cists — lead by Donna the r@cist Brazile. But it isn’t entirely their fault — they were hoodwinked by a guy who pretends to be black.

    So when the younger generation of women don’t get promoted but the penis gets the promotion solely because he has a penis — and these young things cry because he is making the money that THEY deserve. Tough luck sweeties — that is what you young things voted for.

  37. Northwest,

    I agree, except for there is one truly sad addendum. I don’t think the young women of today care about getting equal pay or a better job. One of the downsides of the urban rap culture is that not only are women trashed and treated as merely sex toys, but the women only want to find a “baby daddy” and it’s a badge of honor to have a hoard of kids out of wedlock (with multiple fathers) and then live on welfare and food stamps.

    In sub-urban areas, it’s a similar story. Women want to work only to meet men, get pregnant, then quit their jobs or work some part-time office position just to make a few bucks to pay for Ipods and designer clothes.

    There is nothing we can do for them, because they don’t want to be helped. There is only a small segment of American women that care about having bona-fide careers or having genuine accomplishments.

    *sigh*

    Joey,

    If you’ve read my posts at the sites you reference, then you know what I say frequently:

    >“Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”

    Santayana

    “I’d rather be proven wrong about Obama than proven to be right.”

  38. Thanks for the article Grail Guardian….We live in interesting times.
    I will be paying attention as things are lining up for another global sweep of FASCISM…
    History is after all just a record of Human Behavior….
    Well Women had to wait 50+ years for the right to vote after female abolitionists were betrayed and sold down the river by their male counterparts…So we shall see…
    Totalitarianism is so neat and tidy…Democracy is very messy…
    The coming months will reveal much.

    TU NE CEDE MALIS SED CONTRA AUDENTIOR ITO
    ( Yield not to misfortunes, but advance all the more boldly against them…)

    Seems like we never learn, doesn’t it? I am encouraged, however, at the number of people that did wake up and pay attention this time through. Alas, it was not enough to carry the day, but it is some solace to know that we are not alone.

    Don’t believe the numbers you see coming in now about how many voted for Obama. They are skewed by ACORN and the Oborg. We are here, and we are not just a few!

  40. […] Post Election Thoughts…The Last Salvo or REALITY BITES ~~By Grail Guardian There will never be a female President of the United States. There. I said it. Ladies, go home and grab your burkas and start cooking dinner for your man and popping out babies. You will never have equal pay for equal work, you will never be considered competent or capable at anything you ever do, and you stand no chance of ever getting anywhere unless it’s to a soccer or hockey game to cheer your (male) children on. Of course the laws will be wide open to allow you to abort female children so you don’t have to sully the landscape with them at all anymore. How do I know? Because before even half the nation’s votes were tallied tonight, not only were all the major networks calling the race for Barack Obama, but the pundits are already discussing how Sarah Palin was John McCain’s downfall. Pundits attempting to defend her popularity with statistics were shot down on Fox News. That’s it – it’s over. You will not see another female Presidential candidate taken seriously in this country in our lifetimes. We’ll be lucky if we continue to see women continue to hold seats in the Senate and House […] […]

  42. This is the most moving article I have read so far. Only thing is…can we do anything about what is taking place?

  43. That is the magic question, Betty. We need to determine if the train is so far off the rails that it can’t be saved, or if we can right it’s course. I’ll be doing a lot of thinking about that in the next few days.

  44. CoolAunt,

    Thanks, and welcome to IA! Hope to see a lot of you!

  45. […] THERE WE HAVE IT. The end of an era. A turn of the page. A so-called post-racial but racially-charged election is now in the books. And the winner and 44th President of the United States of America is the junior Senator from the Great State of Illinois—Barack Obama. We, at The Two-fisted Quorum, offer no apologies for owning our votes, and casting them for the opposition, but now that the Democratic ticket has won this historic election, it is time to move on past the ugly tactics this election process on both sides of the aisle could never transcend. It is time to act like grown-up Americans, always on the watch, but never the sore loser… […]
