The guarantee, ii

President-Elect of the United States of America Barack Obama, in his victory speech last night/this morning, “This is your victory. And I know you didn't do this just to win an election. And I know you didn't do it for me. You did it because you understand the enormity of the task that lies ahead. For even as we celebrate tonight, we know the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime -- two wars, a planet in peril, the worst financial crisis in a century.” (Emphasis supplied).

Enormity does not mean “a great magnitude.” It means “a great magnitude of evil; monstrousness.” You could look it up. Yes, this bothered me during the speech.

Many people have worried that blogs which did an outstanding job of criticizing Bush's enormities are going to defend President Obama no matter what it is he does, including if he engages in the same kind of pernicious power grabs for the executive branch that Bush did. This would remove an increasingly effective liberal influence from play. Fortunately, as this post demonstrates, liberal bloggers will have no problem criticizing President-Elect of the United States of America Barack Obama.

By the way, did you notice that as soon as he won saying The Middle Name switched from being an underhanded attack to a declaration of joy that someone with The Middle Name won?
