The Second Front

Wow. You almost feel bad for the guy.

Almost, we said.

The Wall Street Journal has a slightly disturbing but ultimately fascinating piece on how Democratic Party candidates are trashing President Obama in their ads, emphasizing how they stood up to him, voted against him, opposed his healthcare bill and spending sprees. This isn’t theory: these are pull quotes from actual ads, which the WSJ identifies by candidate names.

The Czar is hard pressed to remember Democrats basically running against their own President like this. Carter had a little bit of it, but wow.

About The Czar of Muscovy

Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia by upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
