#1 Yeah, right, whatever. The notion that any level of outrageous or indefensible behavior by any Democrat - or even trunk who's defaming the right politician, soldier, or victim of terrorism, etc. - would result in a "hangover" or any other consequences is cute, and delusional.
2008 was, more than anything else, about the end of serious elections and the disappearance of accountability. And the bigoty and idiocy she properly denounces is very widespread, and completely acceptable, outside red-state America.
Bush was subjected to a vile tsunami of nonsense and idiocy for his entire term. It only got worse the more serious the issues became. The MSM rules supreme, comically inept and unfit candidates like Obama can walk to victory in the first contested election in their lives, and you can call Pennsyltuckians racist, redneck, gun-obsessed religious nuts and get their votes.
Come on, Camille. Focus on important things, like tickets to inaugural balls, or the associated orgy of craptacular self-congratulation and arrogant preening that awaits in January. Don't cling to bitter hopes that an America that has disgraced itself for years will suffer remorse and get a clue.

#2 remedied during the next eight years of the Obama presidencies.
Camille Paglia is also delusional if she thinks Barrack Obama is going to be re-elected. The entire world is going to learn the hard way that OBambi is an empty suit with no character, no strength, and no wisdom.
#3 With such a solid win the democrats have no need to scrape off the radical nuts that have hijacked a good part of their party. Sadly, I fear that the only way to fight fire will be with fire and that will make for a much less civil society. But when it comes right down to it I don't mind rolling up my sleeves and kicking some hippies.

#4 Paglia is a disciple of Marshall McLuhan, and thus, a believer in some seriously heavy-duty witch-doctory bullshit. Don't expect anything too excessively rational from Camille. She specializes in fuzzy-headed, pugnaciously gender-bent vagino-swagger. Her inevitable girl-crush on Palin was overdetermined, but it won't turn her into a Republican. She just likes to play pretend, especially when it helps her pick up chicks in dyke bars.
#5 Camille Paglia is also delusional if she thinks Barrack Obama is going to be re-elected.
We can only hope that he even aspires to be re-elected. I fear an actual election won't be of concern by then.

#6 ION IRNA > US STRATEGIST [Simon Rosenberg] HIGHLIGHTS IRREVOCABLE SHIFT IN US POLICIES.
"Irrevocable" meaning the US DEMOLEFT could dominate US Politics for at least A GENERATION, espec as per US National Policies on GLOBAL WARMING, IMMIGRATION, + FINANCIAL CRISIS.
IN 30 YEARS [circa 2038 = 2040-50 r.o.] > US MAY NO LONGER HAVE A WHITE MAJORITY.

#7 PAKSITANI DEFENCE FORUM Thread > PSST, DID YOU HEAR, OBAMA IS NOT A SECRET MUSLIM - HE'S A [pseudo]BUDDHIST!? Despite formal membership in the UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST + early/original childhood MUSLIM UPBRINGING, MANY OF BIG O's PERSONAL OR PREMIER BELIEFS ARE VERY CLOSELY IN LINE WID BUDDHISM [hence, CHINA-ASIA]???

#8 Skynet is running low on byte space again.
Anyhoo, also from PAKISTANI DEFENCE FORUM > FISCAL WOES COULD [protractively]DELAY CLIMATE CHANGE FUNDING, RESULTS. NOT very much in the near- or short-term but likely in the long-term as wealthier nations cut back on $$$ support to combat MMGW = Climate Change, espec as per assistance to econ/cash-strapped smaller nations.
