Schadenfreude

 

 

Language advisory to the above video. Schadenfreude is a dish best sampled none too heartily in politics since the wheel always comes round the other way, but I can’t resist a few bites.

1.  Sandra Fluke down in flamesSandra Fluke, whose sole qualification for public office was being called a slut by Rush Limbaugh, has had a very long 15 minutes of fame, but they may be over.  With 100 percent of the votes counted, she was decisively defeated by fellow Democrat Ben Allen, a veteran local school official, running for a seat left vacant by the retirement of incumbent State Senator Ted Lieu.    Reportedly Ms. Fluke flushed a million bucks of her rich in-law’s money down the toilet on this losing effort.

2.  Charlie Crist-A former Republican governor of Florida who abandoned all his prior political stances to run as a born again liberal Democrat, was beaten by Rick Scott, the rather unpopular Republican governor of the Sunshine State.  The Richard Riches of this world do not always prosper.  I give the majority of the Florida voters credit for having a sound sense of smell in regard to Crist, who gives slime a bad name.

3.  Scott Walker-re-election:

For the denizens of the left wing of the Democrat Party, Scott Walker was enemy number one due to his having found a formula to break the power of the public employee unions, the mainstay of their party.  Congrats to the usually hysterical Ed Schultz for giving a sober analysis for what his victory may mean.

4.  Debbie Does Delusions-On the other hand another Schultz, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is so ordinarily delusional that she makes Nancy Pelosi look like the voice of sanity in comparison:

Americans go to the polls Tuesday dissatisfied with the economy and President Obama’s job performance, but Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz remains confident for Democrats.

The Florida Democrat and chair of the Democratic National Committee predicts Democrats will hold the Senate and the election will yield more Democratic governors.

 

5.  Shout Out-No Schadenfreude review of the 2014 elections would be possible without a shout out to the savior of the modern Republican Party:  Barack Obama:

  1. Scott Walker was the icing on the cake.
    Madison WI. was invited to another wake-up call from the faithful patriots that make up Wisconsin. For me it’s sweet. The Freedom From Religion group based in Madison is far from ruling the coop.

    Yes Philip, yes, yes. Since God created free will and the freedom to enjoy our free will, every individual person, including Lucifer, a species of person with no humanity, nor human body, are free from the freedom to exercise our freedom of religion, a freedom inscribed in our Constitutional First Amendment. The Freedom From Religion Foundation is and has never been denied their freedom from religion. What the FFRF is denied is their freedom to destroy every individual person’s freedom to exercise their First Amendment civil right to exercise their constitutional freedom of religion, their God-given freedom of free will to thank God, petition God and adore God, in His majesty and generosity.
    .
    The image of God in man is his free will. In his attempt to destroy God, Lucifer destroys mankind.
    .
    The Freedom From Religion Foundation, as the title describes, enjoys its freedom from religion and now agitates to destroy every free man’s exercise of free will to worship God, speak with God, write about God and peaceably assemble with God. (See abortion for peaceably assembling with God).
    .
    This army of the damned, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, marches to the evil, the devil himself, that would murder nations and peoples after subjugating them to their demands and despoiling them of their free will, the image of God in mankind.
    .
    The atheist is a half-baked cookie, who must be tolerated until fully baked, while atheism is patently unconstitutional…or can they not read?
    .
    Our Father, Who art in heaven, deliver us from evil.

  3. P.S. THE SCREAM was kidnapped, returned and then perished in a fire…to our loss. I hope I am mistaken. I have always enjoyed THE SCREAM as a soul who sees himself for the first time before he comes to know God’s wonderful mercy.

  4. I can’t completely share in the Schadenfreude as ex Governor Tom Corbett became the only Pennsylvania governor not to win reelection. We are stuck with Ed $pendell wannabe Tom Wolf Cub of York who wants to soak the predominantly Western Pennsylvania based natural gas industry. He will be another one term governor.

    Other than that, seeing Democrats go down in flames is always fun viewing. It brought back memories of 1994.

  5. We did not so well in New Hampshire, dumping but one Democratic Representative. New Hampshire, Vermont & Nevada have the lowest church attendance in the Country. Cultural and moral issues do not carry the weight they should and do elsewhere. We are nonetheless delighted to see Leviathan dealt a mortal wound. Let’s finish it off in 2016. Praise God!

    Your description of FFRF is absolutely perfect. As I am always humbled at the genius of TAC contributors, you by far are one of the best. Thank you for widening my perspective.

  7. Philip:’Mary De Voe.

    You are very welcome, Philip. It is a gift from God and a privilege. Let us thank Donald McClarey for his enabling all to exercise their freedom of the press.
    .
    Please say one Hail Mary.

  8. So, Sandra Fluke can get $1,000,000 from her in-laws (she has in-laws?) but she needs the government for her annual $3,000 contraceptive bill?

    Please allow me to retell a conversation that I once had with my wife:
    Me: “Did you hear what Rush Limbaugh said today?’
    W: “No”
    M: “He called a woman who testified in favor of Obamacare a slut”
    W: “That’s terrible!”
    M: “Yeah, this woman said she needed Obamacare because she spent $3,000 a year on birth control”
    W: “What a slut!”
