Not only in America.....................

.................we've got our own right wing loonies as well. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you columnist Melanie Philips as an example of the best that the UK can come up with.

I have the feeling that she was not too enchanted at Obama's recent victory. Read how she vented her spleen in her blog posting on November 7th entitled 'America goes into the Darkness' It's a wonderfully off-the-wall intemperate rant. Here are a few of her phrases.

"The greatest satisfaction today over the re-election of Obama is not being felt in the Democratic Party............. (but) is surely being felt in Iran".

"Four years ago, America put into the White House a sulky narcissist with close links to people with a history of thuggish, far-left, black power, Jew-bashing, west-hating politics".

"Britain and the Europeans love Obama because they think he will end American exceptionalism and turn the US into a pale shadow of themselves. What they don’t realise is that, all but lobotomised by consumerist rights, state dependency, victim culture, sentimentality, post-religion, post-nationalism and post-Holocaust and Empire guilt, Britain and Europe are themselves fast going down the civilisational tubes".

"With the re-election of Obama, America now threatens to lead the west into a terrifying darkness".

Mmmmm. Methinks Ms Philips should take herself off to a darkened room and calm down.
