Tangerines and other Political Oddities

THE IDIOCY THAT IS PASSING FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY these days has finally hit a new low: The Great Tangerine Conspiracy! Yes, apparently tangerines have something to do with global warming which is why Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, is now leading a boycott of that poor fruit. While the logic of Mrs. Edwards’ boycott escapes me, it is not the first time she has stirred the political waters lately. Recently she’s taken on Ann Coulter and Hillary Clinton on behalf of her husband who looks sometimes as if he might be better off with her spine. Senator Edwards, you will recall, was the candidate that led the boycott of debates sponsored by Fox News. This from the man who wants to be leader of the Free World and take on the likes of Kim Jong-il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad but can’t face questions form Chris Wallace or Brit Hume!

I have to confess that I’ve had a problem with Mr. Edwards for some time. It started when he hired a pair of blatantly anti-Catholic bloggers, then, when their bigoted views became known, buckled to the pressure of Left Wing Wackos and refused to fire them.

I think the Democratic race right now is all going for nothing anyway. I’ll stick with my earlier prediction: Al Gore will be the party’s nominee for president next year.

  1. And I thought that "Tangerine" was just a song recorded back in the 40's by the Jimmy Dorsey orchestra and vocalists Bob Eberly and Helen O'Connell.
