The Republicans' Banzai Charge

As we watch the last desperate attempts by McCain and Palin to win the election, and this election is far from over, we hear more and more lies and innuendo. McCain and his Bimbo have turned from the "terrorist" scam to a more outdated 'ism, but still effective with those voters, who lived through the Cold War. Now Obama, according to Palin, will bring us a dangerous, "communist" state. Say what? At the first of the week it was socialism, but by midweek it has descended to communism. What the end of the week will bring, one can only guess. Fascism? Islamic fundamentalist communist socialism? Did I leave anything out?

We are hearing desperate Republican congressional candidates fabricating their opponents' voices in ads. The lies get worse, the accusations even more slanderous. These rogues fear that their regime may be coming to an end and their power taken away by an electorate tired of their bad policies and right wing rhetoric. As the days go by they become more rabid and more afraid.

This last ditch effort is not unlike a desperate army beaten and bedraggled, but still rabidly brainwashed in to believing that only they are right. If they don't win, it will be the end of life as they know it. Finally, they make one last effort, gathering all of their resources in an attempt to break the enemy's will to fight and make them turn tail and run. Hitler did it with the Battle of the Bulge in WW II. The Japanese did it on the Pacific Islands as they were beaten into submission by U.S. forces. They would often tank up on liquor to raise their level of courage and then make that one final charge to a violent end, yelling banzai.

These last few days are the Republicans' banzai charge. Their glorious eight year rule may be coming apart. They are desperate. Some of the intelligentsia have already defected to the enemy, drawing the everlasting scorn of their former colleagues. Some are beginning to fight among themselves and resort to name calling and accusations. They are trying to gather their forces for one last glorious charge to November 4. They have their bayonets fixed and bandoleers of ammo over their shoulders. As they run, they yell Communist! Socialist! Terrorist! They are desperate to change voters' minds and to put fear into their hearts as they tear toward that final day of reckoning on Tuesday.

If they lose, and some will, they will tuck their tails and limp home in defeat, dreaming of the days when they will rise again and bring back the glorious days of Bush. The days of Constitution stomping, war mongering, and the driving of the economy into the ground. A day when they can grind their enemies into the dust, calling them names and making up lies to keep them in their place. A time when they can hold fear and hate over the heads of the electorate as they push their agenda through Congress.

But who will lead them? The beauty queen from the cold north? The suave sophisticate from the auto-state? The suspect "foreigner" from the bayous? Maybe there is someone waiting to rise and be crowned the new leader of this gang. We will have to wait to see what Tuesday brings us and continue to hope and pray that this charge is broken and defeat isn't yanked from jaws of victory by the onslaught of lies and mudslinging.
