Enough of the “Heal the Wounds” Crap

I’ve listened to and read enough of this shit. Just stop it, people, because it’s only that: shit. The Breck Kid’s opening stanza of his little riff introducing Kerry’s concession speech made that–and his delusion that four years from now he’s gonna be a playa–crystal clear:

Well, it was a long night and a long morning. And even though the outcome won’t change, I want you to know that we will continue to fight for every vote. Because every vote matters in our America. And we will honor each one of you who stood with us and who stood in line to change your country.

and then:

This campaign may end today, but the battle for you and the hard working Americans who built this country rages on.

The battle rages for the factory worker, the mill worker, who said “I want to work, I just want a job.”

The battle rages on for the mother who sits in the emergency room with her daughter and wonders how she’s going to pay the bill.

The battle rages on for the young person who has worked hard and who wants to go to college but doesn’t have the money to pay for it.

It goes on for the young child who doesn’t understand why they’re treated differently just because of the color of their skin.

And it rages on for the mother who wonders why her son was sent over there who will not come home.

This fight will continue in our homes, in our union halls, in our churches, in our schools, in our offices and over the Internet.

We will keep marching toward that one America, and we’re not going to stop until we get there.
(emphasis mine)

I wouldn’t call that a conciliatory tone. I’d call that a draft version of the next edition of his “Two Americas” stump speech, aimed at those whack “ABB” folks who believe they are in a jihad of their own against the evil Bushitler regime, who after their repudiation by the American public in this election will redouble their efforts to take the President down. Watch for the impeachment beast to raise its head within the next 12-16 months.

And these wolves will be right there.
