Obamageddon: the bright side

Now that the Barackalypse is upon us, we can comfort ourselves with a few silver linings in the mushroom cloud:
  • The media will now freely mention the fact that we're winning in Iraq.
  • People will start loving America, now that we've determined that it's once again "cool" to do so. (Only as long as she keeps doing what we want, after all.  Isn't that why you love?)
  • Dissent will no longer be the highest form of patriotism.
  • This proves — to a degree of certainty once held only by gravity — that public financing is the stupidest idea for "campaign finance reform" since, well... the McCain-Feingold Act. Way to go there, champ.
  • Unity!  Unless you disagree.  Then, shutup.
  • Within 2 years all the old Carter jokes will be new again and ready to make the rounds after a few dust offs.
  • No need to worry anymore about gas or mortgage payments!  That was a hang-up of the pre-Obama world.
  • PALIN 2012.

Indeed. It's going to be very interesting to see how parts of the reflexively anti-American European left are going to reassess their stance on Iraq, Afghanistan and the war on terror now that Obama is going to be articulating the arguments.

Even if he wanted to withdraw immediately from Iraq he could not do so and his recent commitments to upping the efforts in Afghanistan confirm America's commitments in that region. So a lot of people are either going to have to re-evaluate their opinion of US foreign policy or continue to apply the same vociferous rage directed against Bush against the staggeringly popular Mr Obama.
