The New Era

Bill Kristol:
Barack Obama will probably win the 2008 presidential election. If he does, we conservatives will greet the news with our usual resolute stoicism or cheerful fatalism. Being conservative means never being too surprised by disappointment.
Professor Bainbridge:
Piffle. I plan on throwing a major hissy fit, followed by a bender of historic proportions.
For ourselves, if The Chosen One is indeed to be President, we hope for substantial Democrat gains in the House, and 60 or more Democrat senators. We hope for abortion and infanticide on demand, Government-rationed health care, incentive-killing taxes, expanded bureaucracy, a new Federal police force, and tight restrictions of broadcast, cable and internet speech, all things promised by Obama.

We plan to install a hand-pump on the well and stockpile firewood, tuna fish, Bourbon, Klondike Bars and ammunition. Our judgment is that the patient must become far sicker before becoming willing to take the cure.

But that's just us. Perhaps our children will look back with respectful reverence on Annus Unus. In any event, enjoy the crisp Fall weather of the remainder of Brumaire.
