Comment: Democrats Wage War; Republicans Play Badminton

Tuesday, 21 November 2000 12:00 AM

So, while Democrats lob 80 mm mortar rounds at them, Republicans reply with a feathery barrage of shuttlecocks.* Needless to say, carnage runs wild through the GOP ranks, while the only discernible effect among the Dems is an occasional sniffle in those who are allergic to feathers.

To anybody who disputes this, I refer him to what's going on at this moment in Florida. The huge phalanxes of Democrats and their high-priced shysters, who invaded the state in the wake of George W. Bush's apparent victory arrived here fully armed and ready for battle to the death.

Facing them were a corporal's guard of confused Republicans outflanked and outwitted by a foe without regard for decency, honesty, the law or, for that matter, the future of this republic, which they have made the laughingstock of the world.

Truckloads of tough, hard-nosed political pros skilled in the niceties of stealing votes and manipulating ballots were shipped into the state and sent into the counties where manual recounts were under way, there to act as counters and monitors. Facing them were often elderly Republican volunteers totally unskilled in dealing with the unscrupulous pros on the other side and utterly ignorant in the ways of fraud and electoral chicanery.

In heavily Democrat Broward County, for example, the only Republican on the canvassing board was 70 years old and had to bow out because he couldn't handle the 15-hour days required of board members as they went about the tedious job of hand-counting or mangling ballots.

As the Democrats romped merrily about in their jolly theftfest, their GOP opponents were stunned to discover that the Democrats were acting like ... well, like Democrats.

What the hell did they expect? Especially when the chief of the Gore recount brigade is one William Daley, son of the most notorious of all vote manipulators, the late Richard J. Daley, former mayor of Chicago, a city where, it is said, vote fraud is taught in third grade.

Former GOP House minority leader John Rhodes used to say, "Just because we can't be smart all the time doesn't mean that we have to be stupid all the time."

Doesn't it?

During the campaign Gov. Bush's mantra was the need for working with both sides to obtain a consensus. By now I hope he's learned that trying to work with Democrats unlike those he dealt with in Texas is like a condemned man trying to work with his executioner. The only consensus the two can possibly reach results in the condemned's demise.

Should Bush finally pull this thing out of the hands of the vote thieves and their judicial allies, he's going to discover that the real battle has not yet begun. If he doesn't already know it as a result of his experience here in the darkness of the Sunshine State, he will quickly learn that the Democrats' demand for "bipartisanship" means "Give us everything we want or we'll bury you by whatever means, fair or preferably foul, we deem necessary."

The Democrat toadies who think of themselves as the mainstream media elite are having a field day speculating on the gridlock they see developing unless GW, should he win, makes a fervent effort to secure bipartisanship, which means the same thing to them that it means to the Democrats: "Play the socialist game or we'll bury you."

Regardless of who comes out of the Florida swamps the victor, Republicans are going to have to learn, once and for all, that they are involved in political nuclear conflict in which only one side is going to survive.

This war is not a gentleman's game. It's down and dirty, and they're going to have to gird their loins and do battle with an enemy that will stop at nothing to win and to convert this republic into the socialist dictatorship so dear to their hearts.

Faugh a' Ballagh

* For those not familiar with the rather effete game of badminton, a shuttlecock is the feathered object that substitutes for the ball in this dainty takeoff on tennis.
