International Writers Magazine:Election '08
Fun Part - continues
Hillary Clintons big victory in the Pennsylvania primary,
we should immediately see Barack Obamas campaign funding start
to dry up. Thats because its Republican sources, seeing that
he cant put her away and despairing of seeing their good money
chase bad, will shift their funding to McCain.
monied interests reacted with dismay at Clintons huge victory.
Dow and S&P futures are down this morning. They are petrified at
the prospect of the chickens coming home to roost. Given the monstrous
Republican stewardship of this country and the world economy at large
they have plenty to fear from an inflamed electorate this November.
The U.S. stands poised to embark on a vast social revolution presided
over by THE CLINTONS!
the chisel in Republican hands that shattered the Democratic Mona Lisa,
their last firewall against the deluge (sorry for the mixed metaphor).
He is still in the race but it remains to be seen how long he will be
able to withstand all the body shots he will be forced to endure as

delegate count. This is going to be a slugfest with the title going
to the last man/woman standing.
treated Obama with kid gloves for fear of offending the black vote,
but last weekends attack ads demonstrate that that phase of the
process over. Now we get to see if Obama can endure the kind of
treatment the Clintons have been living with day-and-night for the past
20 years. This Clinton primary victory, with the ensuing battle it is
going to provoke, may be the death knell for the Democratic coalition
that has existed since Roosevelt. The African-American block are almost
surely going to create their own party.
thing left for the Republicans is to bring out Dick Cheney and his shotgun.
And Im not trying to be funny. There is every possibility that
the vast right-wing conspiracy might decide that American democracy
is a concept that has run its course. In that case, Hillary Clinton
might have to draw on her Bosnian sniper-dodging experience. Seeing
the chaos in the Democratic Party, the Republicans might decide that
the time was never better to declare a national security emergency,
declare a coup d'etat and suspend the election, supported by a
large rump of the electorate, maybe 25-30%. Where would that leave us?
