For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Obama The "Flake"

J. R. Dunn at American Thinker has predicted that Barack Hussein Obama will lose the upcoming election because he is a "flake." The following is an excerpt from Dunn's insightful and humorous column:

[I'm using the term in its generally accepted sense. A flake is not only a screwup, but someone who truly excels in making bizarre errors and creating incredibly convoluted disasters. A flake is a "fool with energy", as the Russian proverb puts it. ("A fool is a terrible thing to have around, but a fool with energy is a nightmare".)

Barack Obama is a flake, and the American people have begun to see it. The chief characteristic of a flake is that he makes choices that are impossible to either understand or explain. These are not the errors of the poor dope who can't grasp the essentials of a situation, or the neurotic who ruins things out of compulsion, or the man suffering chronic bad luck.

The flake has a genius for discovering solutions at perfect right angles to the ordinary world. It's as if he's the product of a totally different evolutionary chain, in a universe where the laws are slightly but distinctly at variance to ours. When given a choice between left and right, the flake goes up -- if not through the 8th dimension. And although there's plenty of rationalization, there's never a logical reason for any of it. After awhile, people stop asking.]

Read the entire column HERE. Can we afford to have an Obama-mentality running this nation? Leave a comment if you please...

Despite P.T. Barnum's, H.L. Mencken's (or somebody's) comment to the effect that "nobody ever went broke betting on the stupidity of the American public," I'm cautiously optimistic that adage will prove to be wrong again, as it was with the presidential campaigns of Adlai Stevenson, Hubert Humphrey, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis, Al Gore and John Kerry.

It's hard to be more of a "flake" than those guys, but Barry's brief history of non-accomplishments sure seems to fill the bill.
