Oh look, they are ringing the bells. They shall soon be wringing their hands. -attributed to Sir Robert Walpole

Tonight’s only consolation is that we’ll never see a President McCain.

Sarah Palin, despite her initial stunning entrance onto the scene, turned out to be not much more interesting than, well, Barack Obama. Deborah she definitely wasn’t. She turned out to be a vaguely “Christian feminist” (an oxymoron) and just another dull shill for the McCain campaign; perhaps she was just reading the script presented to her. The laughably biased mainstream media shot her down, but she didn’t help her own case much by showing any ability to engage the opposition.

Barack Obama will be an awful president. His votes and his philosophy are both evil by Biblical standards. Nothing in the last year has changed my opinion of him as an empty-suit power-seeker and basically a bad man. He’s about as intellectually interesting as a piece of cardboard. Like JFK, he’s the kind of slick, hollow man who liberals periodically elevate to the status of Secular Messiah.

Let the curtains go up on Camelot II. Journalists, sit down at your keyboards and let a thousand puff pieces bloom.

Like Nero, FDR, Caligula, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush, Barack Obama is who God has apparently ordained to lead. We see God’s providential will in the rearview mirror. But we see His future will too. He will still break the nations with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces (Ps 2). He is with us though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea (Ps 46). The gates of Hell will not prevail against His church.

In the light of eternity, this election is a blip.
