All through the first year of The Anointed One the people of the land did grumble.
"You are spending too much!"And did The Anointed One listen to the people of the land? No He did not. For He was told by Pelosi the Loud and Reid the Inept that they can do what they want, for the people will forget.
"Increasing the debt!"
"The jobs are gone, make more!"
"The banks will fail again!"
"The car companies will fail!"
So while all through the Summer of Discord,. while tempers ran wild, The Anointed One just plowed forward with His own New Deal.
"We will push it through Congress!" The Anointed One shouted to His staff. "We will force this on the people." And the Progressives did laugh.
"We will change the nation, turn it into Europe-lite. By the time We are finished, those idiots in the street will not be able to change it back."
"For Nanny is the name of the New Welfare Plan. Total Cradle to Grave, We will do to them as well. I know best, that everyone can see. My way is the Right Way. That is what I say it will be!"
All through the summer and into the fall, the warning signs were there for all to see, but The Anointed One became blinded to the truth.
He ignored the disaster of the Olympics, how His city of Chicago was turned down. Or when He went to campaign for Virginia and Jersey of New, He couldn't turn those races around.
He put on the tears for the victims of Fort Hood, but refused to call it terror.
He ignored the Christmas bomber, it upset His plans for golf and fun that week.
But when His friend's son received a boo-boo, He ran back as fast as He could.
He partied day and night in the warm Hawaiin sands.
But on the eve of His first year anniversary. He has received the worst news.
The Fiefdom of the Kennedy's: Massachusetts has left the color blue.
The Fiefdom that old Joe the Bootlegger bought for his own son. A piece of land that was the birthplace of the progressive slant.
The land of Harvard (the school The Anointed One attended.), of Barney the Frank and Kerry the Swiftboater, plus other illustrious names.
The Fiefdom of John the Martyr and Teddy the Lecher, both of Camalot fame, did hold court. Those names plus Tips, remained true in count.
Yet of the day before the anniversary of the anointing by John of Roberts, the Holy Chief of Justice, where He was endowed with the Mantle of Power, did the news break unto Him. His party just lost the Fiefdom of Massachusetts, and may never get it back.
There goes the New Deal for the Nation. The Nanny must go! The people have turned against us. Our seats will be given to another. The people have spoken in Massachusetts, a Fiefdom so blue it was nearly black. The Kennedys don't run this Fiefdom any more. The people have taken it back!
"We are fed up with your nanny, spending and lies. You promised us openness on C-SPAN! You said no smoke-filled rooms, transparency. Yet you haven't delivered these. What we want is good government. Lower taxes, more jobs, less waste, less debt. We didn't get that. We want to feel safe when we fly. Yet we don't feel safer too. You treat those who cause harm to us like the common criminal. Giving them rights they are not entitled to, setting them upon our shore.
For all these reasons and more, we have chosen our new champion Brown of the Body Politic. He is our champion. He is our Redeemer!"
The Anointed One reeled in horror. He was the chosen. He wore the Mantle of Power. He was the one they had to worship. He would see to it that the people would have this nanny nation to live on.
But it is too late for the false Messiah He has become, His oration will fail. For the people of the nation have awakened. Now they will just count the days to the next election where they can correct the mistake they made in 08!
Dedicated to the late Roger W. Gardner of Radarsite. Massachusetts was his home state!
