An Irishman calling himself Jigsaw made the following comment on Wise Conservatism, my friend Robert's blog. I'm sharing it here because this Celt gets it like too many Americans don't.
"Hello, I am from Ireland and watched the campaign with interest! My take on President Obama is how on earth [can] a guy with no experience, no leadership history, and a guy linked to terrorists get to be president? All because he sounds good and looks like he stepped off a film set playing the president? I think it will all end in tears although I hope not for America's sake. If a guy here in Ireland had any links at all to an unrepentant IRA terrorist he would not get elected. I cannot get my head around that one!"
Jigsaw is so right. The Americans who voted for McCain can't get their heads around it, either. And, like Jig, I fear that this will all end in tears. I feel like we are Germany, 1933 only it won't take us twelve years to become Germany, 1945. God HELP America!
