Obama's Target for Tonight...

OK, Obama vilified the AIG executives who actually MADE money and had the nerve to take bonuses for it, proving he was going to stick it to the Man, man (even though he nominally IS the Man, man) and was rewarded with a stock market tanking even further and capable financial managers looking to get as far away from Obama and his NY catamites Cuomo and Paterson as possible.

He vilified Rush -- and was rewarded by Rush's ratings going through the roof and his airtime being bought in full for two years down the road.

He vilified Richard Wagoner -- and was rewarded with a nose-diving stock market (again) and being handed a basket of Detroit lemons that HE is now responsible for.

He continues the ongoing vilification and harassment of Sarah Palin -- with the result that her PAC is raking in big bucks and people are noticing that she is refusing bailout money and handling a freaking volcano in her home state without running screaming for help to Washington.

Obama and his handlers are clearly believers in Alinsky's old rule for radicals, that you must demonize your opponents and make them monsters responsible for everything afflicting the voters. But he seems less clear on the notion of unintended consequences.

So this raises the question, Who Will Barack Obama Target Next? Who will be the NEW official monster of the conservative movement. I've taken the liberty of posting the first three that come to my mind, feel free to suggest more.

MARK LEVIN The waspishly acerbic radio host and his book Liberty and Tyranny are dominating the Amazon and Barnes & Noble bestseller lists, with lines around whole shopping malls for his booksignings.

Angie Harmon The fetching Law and Order beauty had the temerity to claim she could disagree with Barack Obama and NOT be a racist. Attorney General Holder may have her court-martialed for cowardice.

Michael Steele Last and, okay, pretty much least, the RNC chairman's embarrassing media presence and unwillingness to confront people out to destroy the party he supposedly represents have reenergized a fractured conservative GOP wing, inspiring them to a new activism and independence from the clueless party hierarchy. This is something Barack Obama can neither forgive nor ignore.

So take your pick, folks! Which of us is next?

He'll double down on the "rich" as the villain, and then he gets to include Rush and your three choices under that umbrella. The "rich" are amorphous enough and they don't fight back like Rush.

Trouble is, this is still the baby-boomer/Yuppie generation and they like the finer things in life. They like the nice cars, the fine wines, the lattes, the big screen TVs and the trappings of their success.

They don't mind badmouthing 'the rich' because they don't realize - yet - that they are the rich.

They don't mind saying we should all give more, do more, and they're happy to "pledge" Demi-Moore-style to do things they already do and call it good. Nothing hard. Nothing that involves real sacrifice. As one Hollywood celeb "pledges" to "only flush after a deuce" -

They're not gonna wanna give up the good life. Not even for The O.
