Blood Will Run in the Streets'--
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 she 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."

She’s still alive?............
LOL! So I should surrender now?
“will be sabotaged by Republican dirty tricks”
It’s the Rovian tactic of making Joe Biden open his mouth. Rove had this control over John Kerry too.
Good! Let him lose and I am willing to play!
That war has already begun. The question is whether or not it will go hot.

Uh, no. An Obama WIN will spark the next Civil War.
I think what she means is race riots.
She sounds nutty.
oh no...i better vote for obama now...LOL
I love predictions of violence if Obama loses. Nothing makes me want to vote McCain-Palin any more than that. I hate having a gun held to my head. It just ticks me off.
O N ! ! !
oh well - who has all the guns?
See you at the barricades Erica.
Second Civil War?
What a moonpie.
Send they who hate our constitution to Kenya
lol.. the record of Daily Kos posts, you mean?
As far as CW2 goes, bring it on you (mostly) unarmed, untrained, leftist bozos.
Well, the pen may be mightier than the sword, but it’s nice to be on the side that has both. ;-)
Yes, but, for the love of God and your eyesight don’t google a current picture.
Erica Jong, author of Fear of Flying, Fear of Fifty, other novels.
Mebbe she’s just a big, fat scaredy cat.
Bring it on!
DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SINGING THEY ARE SINGING THE SONG OF ANGRY MEN!
Good lord she is ugly.
For only like the thousandth time: Our side has the guns. What will the left fight with? Molotive Cocktails?
Or maybe people just don't want this socialist nobody to be the President? Nah, not possible, must have been a conspiracy.
And that record would be whaaaat...............
The Helen Thomas is strong in this one. < /Yoda>
We can only hope. Only half kidding.
I haven’t heard a lot of Dems threaten to move this election cycle.
I figure they will be coming out of the woodwork this week!
I love to see the Libs driven crazy!
Good. Her side will lose.
“....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....”
Well, then, that’s a bonus, I guess. You made my day, Erica.
Someone must pick up the torch when HT passes on................
No, he will fire up the Weather Machine and drown them.
Im afraid poor Erica is dumber than a rock.
Actually I think that CWII could occur either way. If he wins and tries to rewrite the constitution he could well spark a conflict. Either way, like the first CW secession would not be allowed; that issue was settled in 1865.
So sorry I was too late.
These limpwristed leftist will give us such a slapping and hair-pulling that we won’t know what hit us!
If Obama loses and people react like that, then they we make sure a black man is never nominated again with their bad behavior.
locked and loaded .... let the games begin
She will replace HT when that time comes.........
Obama makes RACIST jokes on THE DAILY SHOW
I dont give a DAMN what anyone else thinks, these comments that his WHITE HALF WONT KNOW WHAT TO DO IN THE VOTING BOOTH is a RACIST JOKE, a CLEARLY RACIST COMMENT that if ANY white Republican said in any form would be murdered on the street by the first offended person he saw.
This is RACIST, OFFENSIVE, and just more icing on the cake of his racism (20 YEARS IN WRIGHT’S CHURCH)
These women are such children.
Do they think that even morrons care what they think?
I’m getting pretty tired of such threats out of the Dems. Talk about voter suppression and voter intimidation!!!
Thanks for posting a photo. I almost lost my lunch. She is Helen Thomas pretty.
I predict riots whether the lying Marxist wins or looses.
I’m headin’ far them thar hills.
That’s what I asked? That hag’s still alive? What a beast!!! Her “friends Jane Fonda and Naomi Wolf?” Good grief! I would not admit to those two as friends!!
“Republican dirty tricks?” How can bringing up the truth about the Zero be a dirty trick? What ever happened to disclosure, information instead of disinformation or shutting out of the facts.
If one watches MSM and reads newspapers in this country they will never know what is truly going on re the Zero and his cohorts.
