Feeling ignored lately?
It's not a figment of your imagination. If you're not voting for Barack Obama, you don't exist.
Today brings news that Obama is meeting with his transition team, booking his Cabinet, and planning his first 100 days in office. He is aided and abetted by his wingmen in the left-wing press, who are writing columns exalting the new president and appearing on TV talk shows to discuss how President Obama is doing already. The third leg of this liberal trifecta is the Democratic leadership in Congress, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, who are salivating at having huge majorities so they can ram through whatever left-wing insanity strikes them. President B.H. Obama will sign said left-wing insanity, of course. After all, he's already won.
There's a fine line between the confidence that comes from healthy ego and hubris. Obama and his cheerleaders have assumed that his lead in the polls means a guaranteed election night victory (to be celebrated at an outdoor venue in Chicago---no word yet on if the Greek columns have arrived.)
But the Obama Orgy of Presumption is forgetting one thing: us.
With the exception of ACORN-registered Mickey Mouse, Spongebob Squarepants, and Jive Turkey, no one's voted yet.
The Obama-ites are a loud and rambunctious group. They dominate the airwaves and proclaim their candidate loudly.
But there is another group of Americans out there who are quieter, more reserved, but no less proud of THEIR candidate. They are the great SILENT majority. They are Joe the Plumber. They are us.
We carried Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush to election and re-election. We can turn the Obama tide. We may be quiet, but we are fierce.
And we vote too.
