Blessed are They that Will Mourn: For They Shall be Comforted

My blogger colleague Christopher Johnson of the Midwest Conservative Journal asks, concerning the President's recent statement at a fundraiser that "fear and frustration" drive voters: "Why would any intelligent political party think that 'Vote for us or you’re an effing moron' is a sound electoral strategy?'"

The answer, of course, is they do not think that; electoral strategy is not their intent. The President is fully aware he long ago squandered his ability to persuade even a single member of the opposition to come around. He speaks solely to the remaining faithful, giving a "pre-postmortem," you might say; an anticipatory salving of the wounds about to be inflicted in the electoral catastrophe to take place three weeks hence.
