Chins Up, Conservatives: It Ain't Over 'Till It's Over!
By John W. Lillpop
To overly confident supporters of Barack Obama, Yogi Berra's "It ain't over 'till it over!" admonition seems perfectly appropriate right about now.
Several recent developments indicate that the much-ballyhooed Obama presidency may turn out to be a disappointing fairy tale, just as Bill Clinton predicted in South Carolina last spring.
The FBI has opened a criminal investigation into alleged fraud by ACORN, the community organizing group that has been accused of registering Mickey Mouse and certain Dallas Cowboy football players as Democrats.
Significantly, ACORN is manacled to the campaign of Barack Obama because of his direct affiliation with the group over the years, and his $800,000 check to the group.
Allegations of fraud are cropping up all across the nation and, depending on the results of the FBI probe, could dramatically alter the America public's perception of the entire Obama candidacy.
A "traditional" Gallup likely voter model shows Obama and John McCain within two percentage points, well within the sampling error of the respected poll.
In other words, notwithstanding polls issued by wings of the Democrat party, the candidates appear to be in a statistical dead heat, according to Gallup.
Ohio's Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, a Democrat, has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene after the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered her to set up a system that provides names of newly registered voters whose driver's license numbers or Social Security numbers don't match records in other government databases.
The idea is to detect and prevent voter fraud, a notion that has Democrats like Brunner in a terrified snit, especially since the information concerning 200,000 Ohioans is known to have discrepancies.
A Supreme Court ruling against Brunner would solidify the notion that Democrats are more interested in electing Obama than in assuring an honest, non-corrupt vote.
Combined with ACORN revelations, the Obama team could be on the ropes within a few days.
Some polls indicate that approximately seven percent of voters are still undecided. Those undecided votes could swing decisively toward John McCain, particularly if Obama 's involvement with ACORN and voter fraud is exposed.
In addition, Obama's association with domestic terrorists, racists, corrupt business people and other seedy characters has the potential to explode at any time with new revelations that could send the Messiah back to the U.S. Senate in a hurry.
Anyone who knows politics knows that a fortnight is like an eternity. The possibilities for a late October or even early November "surprise" are endless and could be devastating.
Keep fighting the good fight, conservatives! It ain't over until the Fat Lady sings!
Right now, the Fat lady has an infected sore throat and is not likely to sing until some serious questions about Barack Obama are answered to the satisfaction of the American people!
