5 Bad Omens for the Left’s Prospects in November

It’s become apparent as of late that the Left has a new obsession. Christine O’Donnell’s dabbling in witchcraft in high school and her 1995 stance against masturbation (when she was a conservative activist) have truly captivated her critics. Whether it’s Bill Maher, Maureen Dowd, Richard Cohen, or Frank Rich, all the Left can talk about is witchcraft and masturbation.
However, as I have noted, all of this creepy talk from the Left is actually a sign of weakness. Why? Because there is no way on earth they would be talking incessantly about witchcraft and masturbation if unemployment wasn’t so high and their poll numbers weren’t so low. If you read the tea leaves properly by really taking a look at popular culture–and even the so-called liberal media–it is painfully obvious that victory just isn’t in the cards for the Democrats this November and a few of them are slowly starting to realize it.
So, without much fanfare and ado, I would like to share with you five bad omens for the Left’s prospects in November.
1.) “Saturday Night Live” is finally mocking the Obama Administration.
It’s no secret that late night comics have been terrified to mock Barack Obama since day one. In fact, Maureen Dowd even wrote the following in a column titled, May We Mock, Barack?–
Many of the late-night comics and their writers — nearly all white — now admit to The New York Times’s Bill Carter that because of race and because there is nothing “buffoonish” about Obama — and because many in their audiences are intoxicated by him and resistant to seeing him skewered — he has not been flayed by the sort of ridicule that diminished Dukakis, Gore and Kerry.
“There’s a weird reverse racism going on,” Jimmy Kimmel said.
Furthermore, “Saturday Night Live” repeatedly mocked everyone under the sun during the 2008 presidential election–including Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, George W. Bush, and even Todd Palin–except Barack Obama. Take that back. SNL attempted to mock Obama last February, but instead, they chickened out and wound up making fun of George W. Bush and Joe Biden (who everyone knows is not really in Obama’s inner circle). Lame.
