Devil his due...

This is the quote of the week.

"Give Obama his due: It is an exceptional politician who can win the support of Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, and Kenneth Duberstein, former chief of staff to President Reagan; of William Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist and Christopher Buckley, son of William F. Buckley, founder of modern conservatism; of Rashid Khalidi, an Israel-hater, and Edgar Bronfman, former head of the World Jewish Congress."

In two short years, Obama has managed to become all things to all men. How else to explain it? My question is this: can the center hold? Can what has bound these disparate ideologues together keep them together?

The common sense answer would be no. But it does not now appear that we are living in commonsensical times. The things that used to be "just so" are not. Up is now down and down is now up. And I'm just praying my way through!

And now Cliff May offers the enticing tidbit that this election was nothing short of a revolution. The Democratic Party holds the White House, formidable majorities in the Senate, the House, the majority of the 50 state governorships, the majority of 50 state legislatures, the news media, almost all of the entertainment media, the unions, the educational establishment, the lion's share of the philanthropic community, and increasing power over the courts.

Change indeed!

The initial losers? Evangelical Christianity, Israel, the Republican Party, conservative talk radio, free market capitalism, bipartisanship in Washington, the U.S. military, homeschoolers in California and perhaps elsewhere, "Drill Now", and anything else the Democratic Party is against.

Of course, the eventual losers will be all of us should this revolution of change not work out.

In the meantime, pray, pray, pray for our nation!
