Second Civil War if Obama Loses?

Well that’s a fine kettle of fish!

Eminent genius and perfect prognosticator Erica Jong tells an Italian newspaper all about her paranoid delusions:

Basically, Jong says her fear that Obama might lose the election has developed into an “obsession. A paralyzing terror. An anxious fever that keeps you awake at night.” She also says that her friends Jane Fonda and Naomi Wolf are extremely worried that Obama will be sabotaged by Republican dirty tricks, and that if an Obama loss indeed comes to pass, the result will be a second American Civil War.

Among other chestnuts she throws out for the world to see:

“The record shows that voting machines in America are rigged.”

“My friends Ken Follett and Susan Cheever are extremely worried. Naomi Wolf calls me every day. Yesterday, Jane Fonda sent me an email to tell me that she cried all night and can’t cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduces her to a bundle of nerves.”

“My back is also suffering from spasms, so much so that I had to see an acupuncturist and get prescriptions for Valium.”

“After having stolen the last two elections, the Republican Mafia…”

“If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it’s not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets.”

“Bush has transformed America into a police state, from torture to the imprisonment of reporters, to the Patriot Act.”

Obviously, Erica, Jane, and Naomi really need to take a vacation. Seriously.

Can you hear me now? Oui-wee!

A French man attempting to retrieve his cell phone from the toilet on a high-speed French TGV train had to be removed from the train by paramedics, bowl and all. Oddly enough, the train actually smelled worse after the commode was removed. Oh, snap!

But the bike wasn’t locked!

A Dutchman claimed that it was entrapment when police left a bike unlocked and he subsequently attempted to ride off on it.

Happily, the Supreme Court ruled that, no, he wasn’t entrapped, and perhaps taking other’s property was still a bad thing, even in the Golden Age of Obama that is emerging for the world.
