What A Difference 143 Days Make
3,432 little hours

As I've posted about in the past (helmet tip to Former Altar Boy, by the way), from the moment The South-Side Stooge was sworn in as a US Senator, until he launched his Presidential Exploratory Committee, a grand total of 143 days of actual work in the US Senate had elapsed.

I've heard more than a few economic big-wigs refer to the recent Wall Street melt-down as "a financial Pearl Harbor". I've also heard more than a few Obamaniacs themselves refer to this election as "the most important election in the history of our country".

Hmmm, so the Great Deliverer is this untested, inexperienced, wet behind the ears ne'er-do-well? You gotta be shittin' me.

You know, gang... who goes from being a 2d Lieutenant, to the Commandant of the Marine Corps in 143 days?

Who goes from being an Assistant Manager at your neighborhood McDonald's, to the corporation's CEO in 143 days?

Who goes from coloring inside the lines, to painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in 143 days?

Who goes from being the most inexperienced candidate in the history of the United States of America to the Chief Executive with only 143 working days under his belt? Well, if you're the puppet of some very powerful, behind the scenes individuals... then Barack Obama does.

It's going to be a terrifying 4 years, isn't it?

Bingo, give that man a cigar.

Not if you get on your knees and hot those rosary beads. If saying rosary was enough to help defeat the Moslems at Lepanto, it will help defeat Barack the Baby Killer.

And the Communists, I mean Demokratz, are trying to turn the attention to Sarah Palin as inexperienced. (I notice the media is fixated on hurting her. Not Biden though.) Forget that she is not running for president.
Meanwhile, the inexperienced Obama with his unlimited monetary resources (in a time when people are hurting!) can spend like there is no tomorrow on advertising.

Prayer is a powerful weapon in the war against evil, folks, and that is what we are up against. So get on that kneeler and stay there until you can't feel your feet anymore, and pray like you've never prayed before. Our Lady can stay the hand of her Son from giving us what we deserve, but we must ask it with a pure heart, so don't forget confession and take a shot at daily Mass, too, if it's at all possible.

Might send up a hello to St. Michael while we are at it, and always St. Jude. Might take the real shock troops this time, but it won't happen if you don't ask.
