Mark Morford posted a simply pathetic essay this morning at the San Francisco Chronicle. How bad? Think of Frank Rich after a month-long drug-induced binge of Palin Derangement Syndrome, capped off with a smokin’ Texas-Sized Tequila Tea-Party Chaser. Morford’s piece is all-knowingly titled, “Letter to a Whiny Young Democrat.” No need for a quotation (if you’ve read Frank Rich you’ve already got a handle on boilerplate left-wing teabag bashing). The eye-roller is that Morford is in no freakin’ position to lecture the burnout-dropout youth cohort now copping a large share of the blame for Tuesday’s Democrat debacle. No, Morford was one of the biggest Obama worshippers in 2008. He came under intense fire for penning a June 2008 essay literally elevating Barack Obama to God-like status: “Is Obama An Enlightened Being?” Folks may remember it. Morford’s the one who popularized Obama as “The Lightworker.”
He wasn’t alone, by any means. I’m just rolling over here at Morford’s hypocrisy (not to mention mendacity, unorginality, and so forth and so on). There’s plenty of blame to go around — the collapse of youth participation, the enthusiasm gap, the backlash against socialism, and Obama’s epic failures themselves. But Morford’s bogus tutorial to the Coachella Cohort falls freakin’ flat. Democrat-Socialists had it coming. Hubris breeds humility, and the bill’s come due. Here’s another blast from the past, an all-hail comment at my first Pajamas Media essay in October 2008. My head hurts at the extreme creepiness:
Very soon Barack Obama will be your new President. This is a reality you cannot alter or escape from. It is fact. It is history. It is justice for the world.
Many of you have seen the light and have accepted the truth. And we thank you for your support and aid in electing Barack Obama.
To those who have rejected the truth you have no reason to fear Barack Obama. He is wise and just and he will follow the principals followed by his African forefathers. Barack Obama is the son of Kings and Queens who started human civilization thousands of years ago. Barack Obama remembers his heritage and his obligations to the Truth, Justice and the Future.
Barack Obama understands what is wrong and what needs to be done. Barack Obama has intelligence and vision that has lasted for over a millennium. Barack Obama was born with the appropriate ways of thinking, speaking, and acting and this will inspire you to be liberated for now there is no shackle which can keep you enslaved.
An African Proverb tell us: “Then command the servant, thusly: Make an Elder’s staff causing my son to stand in my place I will instruct him through the speech of the listeners and the counsels of the first of the ancients who listened to the divinities. In so doing troubles will be removed from the people.”
Barck Obama is here now to listen, to instruct and will lead you to your new life.
America will have a new start. A change to right itself. A change to correct its wrongs and address its sins. If you support change that will bring forth social and economic justice, you will stand with Barack Obama. Those who have been denied justice in America will get justice. Those will have been denied opportunity will be given opportunity. Those will falsely imprisoned will be freed. Those who are guilty will be punished. America’s salvation is at hand.
Those who have profited in America will play a role helping others. Justice requires equality and fairness and those who have the means will now be fair and will contribute to equality.
Stand with Barack Obama and you will be honored you for your work, sacrifice, dedication and devotion on behalf of all oppressed peoples.
Stand with Barack Obama and you will be honored and celebrated and remembered in song and praise and by your children.
