Kayfabe. Obamanation.

An amusing missive from former pro wrestler on the Kayfabe of political theater, Jesse Ventura:

In pro wrestling, out in front of the people, we make it look like we all hate each other and want to beat the crap out of each other, and that's how we get your money, [and get you to] come down and buy tickets. They're the same thing. Out in front of the public and the cameras, they hate each other, are going to beat the crap out of each other, but behind the scenes they're all going to dinner, cutting deals. And [they're] doing what we did, too — laughing all the way to the bank. And that to me is what you have today, in today's political world, with these two parties.

And for those of you on the right side of the political column who've endured scorn and derision from mainstream press and social ostracism from self-described 'tolerant' compatriots, a few words from our good friend ACE:


Politics isn't our life, and if we lose an election cycle, we're still going to be happier as a group then they will ever be, even after they've won this one.

Like they always do, hardcore liberal voters have placed all their hopes and dreams into one, terribly flawed, terribly human basket. And without doubt they will be terribly disappointed, especially when they learn they've still got to pay their own mortgage and buy their own gas.

Their Messiah, ain't one, which will become painfully apparent to them soon enough.

Meanwhile, here on the right, we have low expectations of human nature and even lower expectations of government. It's hard to disappoint us.

And unlike the liberals, all of our hopes and dreams are in exactly the same place they were yesterday, in our family, our friends, our local community, in our work, in our religious faith, and in our country. Those are the great constants, always there for us even when we suffer the greatest of setbacks.

Yep, tough times are ahead, and we're going to have to fight like somsabitches to keep Obama and the Congress from screwing things up too much in the next two years. But, we've been there before, and we've prevailed before.

4) Don't give the fucktards on the left the satisfaction of seeing you all act like a bunch of hysterical schoolgirls. They're the ones who can't take defeat. We can take our lumps, get up, and keep fighting. We should be Happy Warriors - whose proper response to this is mockery, good humor, and hard work. We lost and election, but we're still right, and they're still wrong.

Anyway, it's time to cowboy up, and get ready for the next go round.

All that said - for the sake of the country, I hope Obama is a good steward of the power he's entrusted and proves my misgivings wrong. The hard work is still ahead, either way.

To those on the right - be gracious and positive. America is far stronger than any one man to take down, even if you believe Obama is wrong man for the job. Use this moment as an opportunity to clean house and throw out the bums who tarnished the Conservative brand with their corruption and graft.

To those on the left - enjoy your hard-fought win. Nicely done. If I can ask a favor, I'd ask that you keep the gloating at a minimum. We're still your fellow countrymen, after all - and we'll still need each other after inauguration day.
