The American Spectator : We’re Not in 1980 Anymore

For months, conservatives have been likening the conditions of the 2012 presidential race to that which saw the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980.

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more…or close up the walls with our English dead!

    What the hey, I’m tired, it’s been a long day, and it’s about time for me to hit the sack. But tomorrow’s a new day, and I’ll get up, ready to go once more unto the breach again. Not gonna let my spirits get dampened.

    I remember an old joke of sorts I heard once. Seems that during World War II, there came an interlude where God took Hitler, Stalin, and Churchill, and brought them to the seashore. He gave each of the three a bucket and told them that whoever drained the sea first with his bucket would win the war. Stalin and Hitler just laughed and exclaimed there was no way anyone could empty the sea with just a bucket. Churchill on the other hand grabbed his bucket and began scooping out water and tossing it onto land and remarked “We’re going to win this war.”

    Well, it looks like we’re standing on the seashore of an ocean of darkness with nothing but a bucket to scoop it out and away with. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m gonna use that bucket, cause by golly, we’re going to win this war

    Amen, hallelujah, hoorah, and goodnight.

  3. Shakesphere, a Churchill story, “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” video with beautiful photos, and a positive attitude have brightened this sad day in American history. Thanks, Mr. V. I aspire to be like Churchill with bucket in hand.
