Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it.The writer never thought (s)he would be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-1930s (danke schön zu Larwyn).
…now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is more imporant.)
Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: change.
I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.
