Who knows what evil lurks…

Updated on 5/17/09 – see below.

2/26/08

The general election this year is going to be exceedingly strange.

The primary has had its own surprises, but I predict that things are going to get much more shocking.

The reason is that Karl Rove desperately needs to keep himself and his creation, George W. Bush, out of prison.† Only the most die-hard true believers still deny that Bush and other members of his administration have broken laws, and probably many of them.† Thereís only one way to be sure they wonít be held to account, and thatís to install a Republican as the next president.

Yes, George Bush will probably try to pardon himself and his whole administration on his last day in office, but those pardons could be challenged, because the one exception to the presidentís ability to pardon is ďin cases of impeachment.Ē† Democrats canít be fully trusted not to challenge any such pardons on that basis.

So how did John McCain come from way behind in the polls and having almost no money to being the almost certain Republican nominee?† And why was he so certain, in those dark early days of the campaign, that he would later pull ahead?† Could he have made a promise that put the entire Bush family and all its connections, including Machiavellian mastermind Karl Rove, behind his candidacy?

And how did a freshman senator with a very thin record come from far behind in the polls, although fairly well funded from early on, to being the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination?† Great campaigning, I know, I know.† But we also know thereís been Republican crossover to vote for Barack Obama in some of the Democratic primaries that gave him much of his forward momentum.† Are those†voters who can be counted on in the general election?† If not, why did they cross over? †Were they recruited by Rove and his helpers to make sure Obama is the Democratic nominee because Rove thinks heís the weaker candidate?

The right wing has leveled every vicious charge possible against the Clintons, including drug smuggling, rape, and murder, but Obama supporters seem to think that those same shameless liars cannot attack their candidate, or will not be successful in hurting him with their slings and arrows. Yet Obama has given them ammunition with some very questionable associations,†as listed†recently by Gene Lyons, author of†Fools for Scandal†and co-author of†The Hunting of the President.

I personally believe that Hillary Clinton would be less vulnerable to the smear attacks, having been through so much already.† If anyone tried to bring up Whitewater, for example, people would either yawn or run screaming from the room, to escape hearing any more about it.† Obama, on the other hand, is fresh meat for the hatemongers, and theyíve already started to have a good time with him, with false allegations of lack of patriotism and false claims that he is a Muslim rather than a Christian.† The fact that heís a Chicago politician†is already being brought up, and right wingers will push the notion that in Chicago, elections are always stolen.† Itís a charge that stung Bill Daley into backing down from a tougher fight in the aftermath of the 2000 election, rendering him a less effective member of the Gore team than he might have been.

But attacks on the Democratic candidate arenít the only thing to worry about between now and November.† The entire treasury, the whole governmental apparatus, Republicans in Congress, much of the federal judiciary and the Supreme Court, and the right-wing media with their willing collaborators in the so-called main stream, will be put to work to aid the Republican candidate.† Already, the Secretary of Defense†has announced troop withdrawals†from Iraq and congressional Republicans are trying to†revive the Iraq Study Group.† Expect much more to come.

Democrats had better be ready.

5/17/09 Update:

In my 5/15/09 post to MakeThemAccountable, I said I thought the worst thing about Obamaís capitulation on releasing the next batch of torture photographs is that it emboldened the right wing. A reader questioned that categorization, and here is my explanation:

The reason I put emboldening the right wing as the most important point is that they’re now well on their way to doing to Obama exactly what they did to Bill Clinton.

Torture works–when it’s applied to Democratic politicians, forcing them (they think) to go along with the right wing when they shouldn’t and don’t even have to.

Last year, I thought that the Republicans wanted Obama to be the nominee so that they could defeat him (see above).

But the right-wing hate machine was strangely silent during the general election. And when Bush started the brouhaha about the economy being in dire straits, though he could have waited a few weeks and thereby not so seriously damaged McCain, I realized that they not only wanted Obama to be the nominee, they wanted him elected president.

The public was sick unto death of the crap thrown at the Clintons, and here was a new target, with lots new fun stuff to make up. And once he took ownership of the economy and the wars, they could BLAME BUSH’S FAILURES ON OBAMA. We’ll see how that works out in 2010 and 2012, but the right-wing machine has been hugely successful in winning elections (while terrible at governing) for at least the last 20 years. It has even convinced a lot of Democrats to go along with many of its noxious ideas.

I never could see how Republican support for Obama was supposed to be a good thing for Democrats. But now I believe it’s even worse than I thought. THEYíre the ones playing 11-dimensional chess, not Obama.

    Those folks still have their ace(s) in the hole. Those aces being the congress. And if Hil wins and hubby goes off on a world tour with george 1st can you, in your wildest imaginings picture her going after the outgoing bunch? And ‘bama will hide behind the unification and looking foreward excuses.

    The chance of actually seeing what hit the Pentagon and what brought down the towers is bleak. And somewhere in Paraguey perhaps Ken sips his daily martini.
