>Loons on the Left

>Published this hour on Drudge:

It seems that the final days of the presidential campaign have made Erica Jong and her friends more than a little anxious.

A few days ago, Jong, the author and self-described feminist, gave an interview to the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, the choicest bits of which were brought to my attention by the reliably sharp-eyed Christian Rocca, the U.S. correspondent of Il Foglio, who published excerpts on his Camillo blog. 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.

Here’s a translation of Jong’s more spirited quotes to the Milan-based Corriere, as selected by Rocca.

“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.”

  2. >HAHAHAHA…Let Durham BurnBlood Might Run in the streets, but they forget that we own %90 of the guns…

  3. >They dont get it. Obama will not send the 1st BCT 3rd ID out of the US, nor will he act to disolve the Theatre of War that is NORTHCOMObama will not recsind the Aug 28 declaration of a National State of Emergency.Obama will not drasticly revise or unclassify the nature of our “Continuity of Government” structure, and will most likely let it continue forever.Obama not only will not act to rescind the forces authorized by the PATRIOT Act, as he voted for its extension, and he URGED the senate, on the floor, to pass it, and he named its essential writer his VP candidate.He will not cease an illegal, unconstitutional, coercive wiretapping campaign, because he voted to put it there.You know how i know all this? Because he hasnt said he would, and if he was willing, he would drag these skeletons out in to the open and paint himself as a hero off to slay an abusive totalitarian state. But he hasnt, he dismisses any mention of it. And why? Because that leviathan state is what he voted for, Its secrecy and shadows are what he needs, and its power is what he craves. He entered this campaign with a smoking gun, and all he could think of is how many bullets might be left in the magazine.Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.And we so shamefully, still say, “We Wont be Fooled Again”

  4. >Well – Naomi Wolfe called me the other night – a booty call, which is kinda nervy, I mean, given her age and the fact that she just looks skanky – and confided that she had been sleeping with Jong and that anything I read in the papers was a lie, that Jong had gone insane due to an STD contracted from buying adult marital aids at yard sales. But she had to go before I could find out if she was referring to Erica, or Kim Il. Life is a puzzle.
