We have just witnessed an historical election to be sure. Not because we have sent a black man to the seat of power, but because a fortuitous confluence of economic occurrences has convinced our fellow citizens that a change in leadership was necessary.
A great many Americans apparently believe--not without the help of the liberal media--that despite the fact that Democrats have controlled both houses of Congress for the past two years, those reptilian Republicans are responsible for our current economic woes.
Add to this the virtual browbeating meted out to the racist, hate-mongering Americans who dread an Obama presidency and the notion that those who fear socialism have made a virtue out of greed, and you've got a pretty gloomy group of conservatives out there.
And more than one naysayer has lamented that our present economic situation is as bad as or even worse than the days of the Great Depression. And just as Democrats blamed corporate greed for the problem back then, their current solutions are frighteningly similar: giveaways, higher taxes, over-regulation and the strengthening of labor unions. We can only fret as we recall how well that worked out the first time.
But not to worry, good folks. Prosperity, as a fellow Republican once said, is just around the corner, because now as then we will have a beneficent Democrat to rule us. So, with apologies to lyricist Jack Yellen, take heart, because happy days will soon be here again:
Hail we now the holy one;
We have no fear of McCain;
Peace and love will flow once more;
Joyful tunes will fill the air;
Those Russian tanks will turn back,
Thankfulness shall be profound;
Our bills and taxes are nil;
Righteous times are coming fast;
Fraud and vice will be unseen;
With one grand pass of his wand,
Cheer the man of history;
