Too Good Not To Share....

Obama's Victory -- A British view
An editorial from the London Daily Mail

A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher
Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of
objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they
depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not
dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups. A victory for
Obama-worshippers everywhere. A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who
has done little with his life but has written about his achievements as if
he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building
a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style over substance,
hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.

A victory for Hollywood, the most dysfunctional community in the world.
Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros and Sarandon. Victory for those who
prefer welfare to will and interference to independence. For those who
settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for
individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meager political

Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have
already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced,
without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most
liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and
Limbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are
drastically liberal and anti-conservative. Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer
said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In
other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may
well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate
any criticism and opposition.

A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise
children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching
and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently
weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the
tears on the face of a leftist celebrity.

A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the
painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure,
unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation. A victory
for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban

Congratulations America!
