So, I'm curious... is THIS the sign that Obama has peaked (as predicted by ARC:Brian - in Dec, 2006)?
I realize that this is Oregon, the heart of tree-hugging, granola-loving, enviro-whacko leftist country. (Or is that hollywood? I get confused...)
But, is there a single state in which McCain (or even President Bush at this point) would see such crowds?
With Obama's rhetoric, his constant refrain that he is the embodiment of what the people want, and the adoring and unquestioning crowds he's receiving, I'm fearful of where this is heading.
And, it'd be one thing if the GOP was fielding someone who could successfully counter Obama's magic - but McCain is truly Bob Dole 2.0.
As Brian would say, though... don't you want the team to win? Then it's time to get with the program. Time to jump on the team and come on in for the big win! (Adapted from Full Metal Jacket - dialogue between Pvt Joker & Pogue Colonel.)
And for those of you who are curious about how you can profit from an Obama victory, here's my investment advice for 2009:
Go Long (Buy):
- Cheap Scotch Distillers - I will fuel this boom myself
- Any alternative energy which has zero chance of replacing Coal, Oil, or Nuke, but which costs a ton of money to produce and has secondary ramifications to our economy
- Teacher's Unions
- Law Firms
- Leftist Professors
Go Short (Sell):
- Oil companies
- Nuclear energy
- Pharmaceutical companies
- Defense companies
- Any concern which operates on the basis of making a profit and returning value to shareholders
