Manifest Destiny In Reverse

America has never been this fucked up.

That bitter awareness is echoing from one end of reality to the other, it’s rumbling just under the surface of this Wonderland of the One-Percent, it can be heard in the whistling of Wall Street bankers past the graveyard of the economy, in the silence of a million foreclosed homes, in the blowing of the wind through the ragged lines of the unemployed, in the pounding of the waves of karma on the shores of capitalism, where the sandcastles of the American Dream are being swept away, where the piers of the political system are collapsing into the sea, where a long night is falling and the lights along the boardwalk of forgotten freedom are all going out.

I didn’t listen to or read Obama’s ration of shit to appease the left.  He’s clearly in campaign mode, and a known liar to boot.  The wreck list at Kos is full of credulousness and praise and donations, whereas Lambert mocked Booman’s swooning response, and Ian Welsh rolled his eyes and welcomed us all to 1970’s style stagflation.  Msnbc’s Ed Schultz said he hallucinated that he wrote Obama’s speech his-own-goddamned-self.  Woot!   Should I mention that Moe Lane of redstate is finally done with President Obama?  Moe’s now on a steady diet of spinach and fear-factor worms to fight to the finish.  “Oy,” as they say.

Meanwhile, whassup with the cheese-eating surrender monkey-frogs?  Punching “above their weight” in Libya and Cote de Ivoire, and shit.  Damn, French people!  Y’all are going post-colonial apeshit, and shit.  Like a real super-power.  Wasn’t that long ago (9/11, 2001) when my homey Olivier and y’all were tittering in American ivory tower elevators about righteous blowback for American over-reach in the very hour when Americans were being consumed in flames.  To the extent that the official 9/11 story is true, which is probably not very, you were right, Olivier, of course, but still, you’re a fucking savage.
