So Much for THAT Narrative! by American Elephant

Hillary Clinton

Those rascally reporters in the “mainstream” media have been working double-time to convince us for over a year now that ’08 is a lock — you may as well stay home, because Americans hate Republicans and will never, ever, ever elect one ever, ever again!

Many Republicans were even falling for it.

Not so fast.

Forget for a moment that the top Democrat candidates are all completely inexperienced, unqualified boobs. Forget also that their current front-runner has a track-record of corruption ten times the length of her resume. And remember that the media always tell us the election is the Democrat’s to lose. Both Al-Gore and John Heinz-Kerry were at one point or another inevitable victors according to the liberal media.

But wishful thinking is no substitute for factual reporting no matter how much the beltway propaganda-slingers wish it were so.

The conventional wisdom is horse-hockey.

The latest Zogby poll shows her thighness, Hillary Rodham, losing to all top 5 Republican contenders. Not just Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney, but John McCain, Fred Thompson and even Nanny Huckabee.

The more Americans see the Democrat party, the less they like what they see.

I have been saying for some time now that Democrats will not nominate Hillary. I have suspected that they will panic, decide she is unelectable, and throw her under the proverbial, unionized, bus. This poll, I think, makes that possibility more likely.

Australian Prime Minister John Howard

In case you missed it, Australia just held elections this past Saturday, and after an eleven-year run (the second longest in that nation’s history), Prime Minister John Howard and his ruling Liberal party were defeated by a healthy 7% margin.

Howard, a strong conservative, has been a stalwart ally of the United States, especially in the war on terror and the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has led Australia into a robust economy with full employment and a stunning 11 consecutive years of growth.

If Americans could elect foreign born presidents, John Howard, not Schwarzenegger, is the man I would want to recruit.

Howard’s replacement, the Labour Party’s Kevin Rudd, has apparently committed to pulling Australia’s troops slowly from Iraq, beginning in 2008. (The election had very little to do with Iraq and more to do wtih a desire for change after 11 years of the same leader) The editors at national Review suggest Rudd’s domestic policies will resemble those of Tony Blair in Great Britain — not good news for Australia if you ask me.

John Howard was a great friend of the United States, an outspoken ally, and a great leader of the Australian people. For that we are VERY grateful and very sorry to see him go!

Vice President Dick Cheney

Vice President Cheney was taken to the hospital today for evaluation of his heart, after doctors performing an exam detected an irregular heart beat.

May God keep him healthy and well, and may he continue to drive liberals nuts for decades to come!
