Obama Went Down To Delaware

Obama going to Delaware on Friday? Via AmericanGlob, Rush says it’s all panic.
Allahpundit likes the WaPo analysis:

Obama isn’t just visiting; he is also bringing Vice President Biden, who formerly occupied the Senate seat and has already campaigned on behalf of Coons.

Democratic officials insisted the stop isn’t all about celebrating their luck with the O’Donnell nomination. “There’s nothing you can bank on in this cycle,” one strategist said, requesting anonymity so as to discuss political developments more candidly. “Christine O’Donnell came out of nowhere in the primary.” At the same time, the strategist said, the visit gives Obama and Biden a chance “to go help out a guy who’s going to be a United States senator.”

“Given the map out there, there’s a finite number of places Obama can go, and this is one of them,” the strategist said.

So it could be a feel-good, pick-me-up Friday trip to a state whose race is deemed both high-profile and safe.
No one else seems to be picking up on the possibility that O’Donnell is a Sarah Palin surrogate, a stand-in for the grizzly noir causing bedwetting in a Democratic master suite near you, if you hang your fedora near the Potomac.


Of course, you came to The Other McCain for the real scoop, which I have handily included below the fold:

Obama Went Down To Delaware

Obama went down to Delaware,
He was lookin’ for thunder to steal,
He was in a bind, his party was behind:
He was using campaign appeal.

He came across a reading Tea Partier,
Bitter cling-on, Constitution hot,
Then jumped up on a speechin’ stump and said:
`Christine, let me tell you what.

`I bet you didn’t know it,
but I’m a Constitutional scholar too;
if you care to dare a Senate chair
I’ll make a bet with you.

`Now you done fine campaigning, true
But give Obama his due.
I bet a chair of gold against your soul
Cos I’m Hopier and Changier than you.’

The girl said `My name’s Christine,
and it’s un-Constitutional, I know
but I’ll stomp your hassle like I did Mike Castle
–or are you all talk, and no show?’

Christine, sharpen up your speech
and campaign for your life,
Cos Obama’s loose in Delaware
(Could he be running from his wife?)

If you win you get
this shiny Senate seat of gold
But if you lose
Obama meets his goal

Obama set up teleprompters `Yeah, I’ll start this show.’
Fire flew from his fingertips as he welded that stupid Presidential seal in place so that it didn’t blow his game at this critical juncture–you know?
His head bobbed as the words rolled; crowd made an evil hiss.
Then a band of media jumped in and it sounded something like this:

When Obama finished, O’Donnell said: ‘Well, you’re pretty good old son,
But shut your teleprompters down, let me show you how it’s done’

Fire in the First State, run boys, run.
Obama’s in the house of the rising sun.
Geithner in the Treasury pickin’ up dough.
Auntie, does immigration bite?
Sho-wa child, sho’.

Obama bowed his head because he knew that he’d been beat.
He set that golden seat on the ground at Christine’s feet.
Christine said, `Obama, just come on back if you ever want to try again,
I told you once, you son of a Kenyan: Conservatives to the end!’

And she played
Fire in the First State, run boys, run.
Obama’s in the house of the rising sun.
Geithner in the Treasury pickin’ up dough.
Auntie, does immigration bite?
Sho-wa child, sho’.

Props to Charlie Daniels

    O’Donnell is currently debating Coons on CSPAN. Of course his opening statement was the current Dem talking point, “my opponent wants to take us back to the failed policies of the previous administration…”
