DU's Daily Deluge Of Delusion

DU's Silly Hero Worship Of Goofy Al:

*Al Gore will ultimately win because he is the Hero of a Thousand Faces

He is the embodiment of the Joseph Campbell theory of myth and the universal subtext. He was cast out reluctantly and set upon a multi-stage journey of self-discovery while overcoming external ordeals. He has obtained the goal of the quest and is in the final stages of the journey - the return home where the hero shares with the rest of us the knowledge gained in his outside odyssey. See? He will win because he is supposed to, or else the story ends badly. Ok, I feel better now.
(Phoebe Loosinhouse)

*This is EXACTLY what I have been saying all over the boards.

It's a flippin' archetype! And Americans -- for that matter, most people -- CANNOT resist an archetype. If he runs, it will be irresistible.
(crispini)

*He's an archetype AND an antidote!

You're right. It also settles a craving for justice. Will the Hero resist his own myth? I hope not.
(Phoebe Loosinhouse)

*Yep. He's Arthur in the Sword in the Stone. (Phoebe Loosinhouse)

*It's time he takes his rightful place at the table... (fooj)

I just love 'em holding him up as some kinda God, when he hasn't got half a brain. It makes them look like such fools. Al will never be Prez.

Sis doing a little better this afternoon. It's warm and sunny here and I've been giving her O.J. and chix soup. The cat seems to be his ol' squirrelly self!

Sadly, Gore was right on so many fronts... Iraq, the deficit, health care and of course global warming.. One wonders what this country would be like today if we stayed in Afghanistan and chased down Osama instead of a fools errand for WMD and doing Poppy one better in Iraq. Sadly 3000 of our finest, brave young men and women paid the ultimate price. And many families have suffered in that loss.

les ismore--Gore was right on none of those things--and mostly, only in retrospect. He's no climatologist and hasn't got a clue about global warming. Surely you are not so stupid as to believe him...

I'm doing a piece about the war and bin Laden/Afghanistan because of your repeated comment, and density, in grasping a couple of key points. It'll be posted on the front soon, pleas read it and try to grasp the concepts. I will write it in the simplest way, with one-syllable words if need be...

Al Goron is LOVED by the wackos on the left! He IS Mr. Global warming, and that movement is the home of all of the displaced communists after the collapse of the evil empire. So that is NO surprise. Al will make it official if he can muster the juevos--acorns in his case--to challenge the Hildebeast.

As pathetic as Goron is, he's a better man that John Kerry. He didn't commit treason in 1970 as a reserve Naval Officer.

Bill Richardson is by far the best man the lefties have and they will soundly reject him because he's a decent human being. Well lefties, keep sending up these abject schmucks and we'll keep rejecting them! Also a little clue for you wackjobs. When you lose a state by 10's of thousands of votes (Ohio)and scream FRAUD! ordinary everyday Americans tend to watch your spasms and say WHAT!? I noticed that Kerry won Minn. and Wisc. by a few thousand votes and you didn't say a DAMN THING! You leftists are SO DAMN CORRUPT AND DISHONEST!!!!

A correction to my last post.
George W. Bush (aka Mr. President) won Ohio by 165,019 votes!

Do you left-wing idiots have ANY sense of shame or embarrassment? I heard a prominent emoter, I think it was Soiled Harry Reid, complaining two days ago about "irregularities" in the 2004 Ohio elections. The Soiler would know about "irregularities." LOL!
