Before the Storm

Today the Young Messiah travels to Harlem to have lunch with Bill Clinton. To this point the Clintons have been holding themselves aloof, allowing the hapless Obama campaign to twist slowly, slowly in the wind. Now, as they anticipated, Obama needs them desperately and today they will present a bill for their future services. I don't know what it is going to be, but the price will be very, very steep, and Obama has no choice but to pay it.

The Anchoress speculates on just what will be said at that meeting here. Check her out -- she's one of the best bloggers out there and her take is hilarious.

Once the Clintons are on-board, the Democrat campaign is going to change. Look for it to plumb new depths of outrageous and despicable behavior. There will be hard and mean times ahead. John and Sarah are tough cookies themselves and able to withstand a lot of abuse, but for those of us who wish them well, the next couple of months are going to be tough to take. Just be ready for it -- things are going to get really, really nasty and disgusting and every time you think things can't get any worse, they will.

So screw up your courage and stand fast -- do whatever you can to counter the tidal wave of abuse that will be coming our way -- and keep the faith.
