Obama the Equus Asinus

John McCain set two traps in as many days for Obama and he (Obama) stepped into both of them with both feet. First was the leak that McCain might announce his VP pick on the same night that Obama was to accept his party’s nomination for President of the United States. The Obama camp, in a knee-jerk reaction, proclaimed such an untimely announcement, should it come, as “political malpractice”. Well, that announcement did not come last night to rain on Obama’s parade. What did come out of the McCain campaign was a nationally televised ad consisting of heartfelt congratulations to Obama for “a job well done”. Obama ended up looking like, well, like an ass.

Obama repeated that particular imitation of the Democratic Party’s mascot again today when John McCain announced his choice for VP. In typical liberal fashion the Obama camp attacked Sarah Palin on as many points that they could think of in two shakes of the proverbial bony finger of indignation. "Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency," said Obama spokesman Bill Burton. "Gov. Palin shares John McCain's commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil, and continuing George Bush's failed economic policies -- that's not the change we need, it's just more of the same."

Upon further reflection, once the criticism of the imprudence of attacking a woman who has just been named a VP candidate during a week commemorating the 88th anniversary of women getting the right to vote began rolling in, Obama and Biden came out a gave a more congratulatory response. I have no intention of quoting that response here by virtue of the fact that it is irrelevant and because it will detract from my gloating.

Kudos to John McCain for his excellent choice of Veep and for forcing his opponent to stick his foot in his mouth twice within a 24 hour period. If Obama had attended a church pastored by minister with less of a political axe to grind and more of a biblical focus, perhaps Obama would have become familiar with Eccl. 10:2, "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."
