US Magnanimity vs Cheating Scuttlebutt


Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin who I read, has an excellent piece this week. She says,

“My counsel to you tonight: Please, do not be bitter. Do not fall prey to the Beltway blame game. Do not get mired in small things. Do not become vengeful creatures like our political opponents who voted out of spite instead of love of country. We still have boundless blessings to count — and to secure. I remain a proud, unrepentant believer in the American Dream. And I know you do, too. Freedom will endure because we will keep fighting for it. We can’t afford not to, friends.”

I agree.  Obama won fair and square, and sweating the small stuff is sour grapes.  The kind of small stuff is like this:

a) Accusations Congressman Tom Feeney (Fmr. Speaker of The House in Florida) employed a man in FL to rig elections and flip them 51% to 49%. Exit polling data has proven to be significantly different than the published results. Rep. Feeney was also the lobbyist for Yang Enterprises, the company that delivered the program.  You can watch the story here:

b) The satirical is ‘reporting’ that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Romney.  More here: 

If there is any substance to these allegations, I doubt it, the media will bring these up, otherwise they are scuttlebutt.  In the meantime, Michelle Malkin’s counsel is best and the right approach.

About coNZervative

A blog about politics, life, culture, literature, music and thought from Christchurch, New Zealand [NZ] (the home of 10,000 earthquakes since 4 Sept. 2010) built because of the bullying and cajoling of Liberal opinion-makers (journalism and Hollywood) against conservative-minded people who are as entitled to opinion and a perspective as anyone; and because Conservativism has served the world well. John Stringer is a New Zealander (Christchurch) in his 50s married to an American from Taco Bell; they have 5 adult children in 3 diff. countries. John is an ex-Anglican pastor, a teacher, published author (NZ), novelist (USA) and cartoonist (Aust, NZ), and has spent the last 25 years in NZ politics with the National party (he was a parliamentary candidate in 1999). There was a stint in London working for the British Conservative party as well, where he did media minding and campaign work with several Brit cabinet ministers, including Baroness Thatcher, Baroness Blatch, Michael Howard, Tom King, among others. He has an MA (classical studies, Victoria); is a graduate of the New York Film Academy; and has various awards for writing. His passions include British bulldogs, fly fishing, and history (Ancient and WWII). Winston Churchill was mainly a “Conservative” but also a “Liberal” MP between 1900-1964. A Member of Parliament for 64 years, he contested 21 parliamentary elections (for Oldham, Manchester North West, Dundee, and Epping/Woodford). Throughout his career Churchill stood for liberty. He believed in open debate and freedom of speech, and opposed any system or ideology that tried to dictate the way one should think. Churchill felt deeply that disagreements within the democratic system should not degenerate into personal animosities.

  1. Do you understand what “Me” is telling you? The Duffel Bag is a satirical website. The articles it publishes are jokes, not meant to be taken seriously. When you post their story as “evidence” of a conspiracy, it makes you look like a fool. It would be like using an article from the Onion to support your argument. FYI the Onion is also a satirical website.
