You know the world has spun off it's axis

...when I agree with Ann Coulter. I admit, sometimes her snarky writing gives me a giggle. But in the same way you can't help looking at a drunk student in a Batgirl suit. (Yeah, I saw this and it was in September, not Halloween.) But this week she writes this:

This was such an enormous Democratic year that even John Murtha won his congressional seat in Pennsylvania after calling his constituents racists. It turns out they're not racists -- they're retards. Question: What exactly would one have to say to alienate Pennsylvanians? That Joe Paterno should retire?

See what I mean about a car wreck. Only I wish it weren't true. I am completely baffled by the good folks in Altoona, Somerset, Johnstown and points west, among whom I have some respected friends and associates, and this isn't the first time I've wondered. What the hell were you people thinking? Are the earmarks worth being called racist and redneck by your own Congressman? Apparently.

And the answer to the last question is yes. That might do it. Not in our house, but elsewhere.

I swore that I was not going to fash any more and go back to knitting. But this was too good to pass up.

Oh yeah....and she ended with this.....

For now, we have a new president-elect. In the spirit of reaching across the aisle, we owe it to the Democrats to show their president the exact same kind of respect and loyalty that they have shown our recent Republican president.

Is this what they mean by poetic justice?

You're preaching to the choir. My fellow Alaskans felt the need to reelect a convicted criminal.

And my husband made a good point today--Bush WAS a unifier after all--he unified everyone in disapproving of him. ;-)

Even Nevada went blue, in state and county races as well.
Yeah, Bush the Unifier is all over the joke-o-sphere. History will judge Bush as he has said himself. I think the future will see what a great sacrifice was made by our military in focusing Islamic Fascist hatred on themselves in Iraq and not here at home. We'll be hearing all about this in 10 years, especially if Obama shuts down the military and Homeland Security ops that prevent incidents at home. Obama cannot cure the hatred for Israel and America by just being elected Pres. That hatred predates Bush. Something the celebrants seem to have forgotten or never knew at all.

I'm siding with Ann. Especially in her closing comment. That's how I intend to spend the next four years.

Bitter? Maybe. But not without good reason. I respect the office, not the man in it.
