Skip to comments.A word to elites: Get over it

George W. Bush offered to pray for the soul of Yasser Arafat yesterday when he was told of the Associated Press bulletin, later withdrawn, reporting that he was dead.
A good thing, too, because when Yasser gets to the gates of Islamist paradise, peeking in to see how many virgins may be drooling at the prospect of entertaining his moves, he'll need at least one presidential character reference.
Hysteria is the blowout flavor of the week everywhere. Some of our British cousins are as unhinged as our colleagues at the New York Times and in The Washington Post. Someone could make a tidy bundle arranging one-way flights out of Dulles International for the despairing Democrats who are threatening to leave America once and for all to find suitable accommodations elsewhere.
The shock and awe will subside, of course, and the elites, big-time losers all, already have a recipe for closing "the chasm." All the winners have to do is adopt the agenda of the losers, and everything will be buff again.
George W. Bush has demonstrated in his first four years that he has no appetite for a poisonous elixir offered by enemies trying to persuade him to "grow." What the elites mean by "growing" is stiffing his friends and becoming more like them. Disdained by the elites as a moron with an IQ to match his shoe size, George W. knows who he is and how he got where he is.
The elites of the newsrooms and the faculty lounges will get over their snits, and until they do we can gloat. And why not? We earned it. We deserve it.

And God help us if the Bush mandate is squandered on "reaching across the aisle" to those who are openly hostile to all things American.
It's time that the Left got the very real picture that when you bite the hand that feeds you, you're going to wind up with a mouthful of fist.
Bush better not compromise, the left never will.
The Bush family tends to reward those who are loyal, and punish those who are not. Now that the elections are over, I expect to see some paybacks - although they will be delivered in a way that makes them difficult to trace.
Let's just say that some political figures are going to say and do some amazing things over the next few months - with no apparent reason for doing so. This should be fun.
Appears to me Bush learned alot from his first 4 years in office. He may comprimise with those on the left, but I think the left will find it frustratingly hard to get what they want, done their way, this time around. Bush may take the left's ideas, and remanufacture them into his own ideas.
Knowing he's up against term limits, I think he'll pull out all his stops. The fact he increased the base in 4 years is by no means an accident.
