BHO – From Desperate to Desperate-er

Mrs. Dr. J. was disturbed by President Obama’s suggestion over the weekend that voting is the best revenge. “Against who? Against what?” she asked. “He’s the President? What kind of revenge is he talking about?”

She isn’t the only person to ask these questions or be disturbed by his dark tone as he was speaking. Jay Nordlinger also took up this issue here.

Given that the President has lowered himself to this base level of community rabblerouser suggests to Dr. J. that the internal polls are showing some bad news. That being said, STILL GO OUT AND VOTE FOR ROMNEY in the event that this is to get Romney supporters cocky and rest on their laurels. Dr. J. crawled across broken glass two weekends ago to vote, and Mrs. Dr. J. is putting on her finest brokenglassproof shawl to make the way to our polling place tomorrow. Every vote matters.

Dr. J. also believes, like Michael Barone and Fred Barnes do, that there is a huge enthusiasm gap that is difficult to correct for in polling.

But what did it for Dr. J. is that Obama had to call in ‘The Boss’ Bruce Springsteen to draw crowds in the People’s Republic of Madison. When Dr. J. was growing up, Bruce would sell out 6 shows at the Spectrum in a nanosecond, and even was in the habit of adding shows in Philadelphia, NJ, and NY to accommodate demand. The fact that he has lowered himself to open for a politician (regardless of political stripes) and that Obama needed this rock legend’s help, when a mere 4 years ago, Obama was the rock star is the ‘Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin‘ we’ve been waiting for.

UPDATE: Apparently, Springsteen isn’t drawing the crowds he did 8 years ago

About Dr. J.

Dr. J. was born the son of a New Atlantean sharecropper who cornered the market on notoriously delicious seaweed Himanthalia elongata (popularly known as Thongweed). With his newly minted seaweed fortune, Mr. J. the Elder sent his son to attend the Academy of Sorcery, Alchemy and Surgery where the good doctor apprenticed with the finest sorcerer surgeons in New Atlantis. Dr. J.'s areas of expertise grew to include bleeding, cutting for stone, trephination, medical divination with outstanding spatial and temporal resolution, cybernetic sorcery and medicinal alchemy. When King Orin of Atlantis fell ill with the Ick, Dr. J. stepped in with an elixir he devised from a combination of minerals, herbs and saps. Curing the king, Dr. J. gained significant notoriety which afforded him the luxury of time to devote himself to his side hobbies which include porpoise racing, the study of supply-side economics, cooking and raising his lovely merchildren alongside his lovely bride the archconservative Mrs. Dr. J.
