The Obama cultists are very, very worried. We don’t feel their pain.
There’s no shortage of their kind in the politically bluest parts of California. Liberals so freaked out about the prospect of President Obama losing his re-election bid that they can’t sleep at night. Can’t talk about anything else. Can’t stop parsing the latest polls.
“Oh, I think I’m worse than that,” Kay Edelman said.
What does it tell you when these tools in your own party call you bed wetters?
For the past several weeks, the 60-year-old San Francisco resident has frequently bolted awake in the middle of the night, in “a panic attack,” she said. She darts for her computer and checks the latest polls. Some days she’s so distraught that she can’t exercise.
Every morning, she gets e-mails from friends who’ve been just as sleepless. Most are so tense, they can croak out only a few words. “Very anxious.” “Worried.”
“Nothing more needs to be said,” said Edelman, a retired educational administrator.
Oh, to have been a fly on the wall as these lamebrains watched the first debate.
Edelman hosted a bunch of friends to watch the debate over dinner. But after the first five minutes unfolded, nobody ate. Few spoke. “And right after it ended, everybody just got up and left,” she said.
Berkeley resident Jim Blume yelled at the television while he watched the debate with family and friends.
“C’mon! Say something! That’s wrong what he (Romney) is saying,” Blume recalls telling the leader of the free world.
Alas, Obama didn’t respond to Blume’s pleas. And for the next two nights, Blume didn’t sleep. A man who has voted for only one Republican in his life – when the Beatles were touring – found himself questioning Obama and the state of the campaign.
Keep reading. And laughing.
