Let’s get this straight…

First off, the McCain people tried to say that Barack Obama was soft on terrorism, even insinuating that because he has a funny name he is a terrorist. This, in short, was the scare tactic of the early part of this decade, and it did not work.
Then, they decided to claim that Barack Obama is a dangerous liberal tax-and-spender. This, in short, was the scare tactic of the eighties and nineties, and it did not work.
So then, they tried to tie Barack Obama to William Ayers and other damned dirty hippies who were running around when he was in kindergarten. This, in short, was the scare tactic of the sixties and seventies, and it did not work.
So now, they’re actually calling Barack Obama a communist. They have at last resorted to the scare tactics of the forties and fifties. It isn’t working either, possibly because it’s so damned laughable.
So what’s next? Are they going to claim that he supports rum, Romanism, and rebellion? Free silver? Emancipation? It’ll probably be Emancipation, you can just tell he’s anti-slavery.

  5. “And now, the end is near…”
