This week was one of bizarre spectacles, over and above the 2nd inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama, praise be his name. That event featured Richard Blanco’s poem “One Today.” “My face your face” is part I remember. Seriously? “My ass, your ass,” I thought. Of course, I’m probably just a peasant who doesn’t appreciate great art from a man who is both Latino and an open homosexual, and therefore, above criticism. Then the great speech by the One himself. I didn’t notice. Did they hand out the little red books to the assembled cadres there or is Organizing for Action going to send those out using their tax-deductible contributions?
In other bizarro world events, consider the following:
- After making sure that anyone who might challenge her narrative had laid their cards on the table before she went on the record, Sec. of State, Hillary “What Difference Does it Make?” Clinton finally recovered from her vapors and appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee to tell her story about the murder of four Americans in Benghazi. Libya on September 11, 2012. Her acolytes in the Lame Stream Media praised both her spunky pushback against the Republican dolts who dared to pose serious questions, and her tearful recalling of her greeting flag-draped coffins at Andrews Air Force Base. Missing from their slobbering reports was any mention of the glaring irony of a woman who cut her teeth in the Watergate investigation, pursuing dishonesty in the Nixon administration, raising her voice to proclaim that such dishonesty should make no difference. Nor did they mention the ridiculous performance by her former Democrats, who agreed that it’s time to “move on” from the Obama administration’s many shifting stories about four dead Americans, but who wanted hearings on the Bush administration’s 2003 decision to invade Iraq, a decision, for which, just sayin’, Mrs. Clinton voted “yea,” a fact that they also failed to mention. Also missing was any mention of her vow to pursue to ends of the earth the heinous film maker who caused all this trouble in the first place, except her really didn’t, and anyway, it’s time to move on.
- Meanwhile, a U.S. Senator who at one time had her own concealed carry permit because of fears for her own safety, presented her plan to disarm her fellow Americans. In another irony, she and her fellow gun-grabbers bleat incessantly about the phony “gun show loophole,” while presenting their very own gun show, a presser which was even opened with a prayer, an apparent loophole of their own. Did Barry Lynn’s beeper go off? Is the ACLU preparing a lawsuit? What happened to their precious “separation of church and state?”
Of course, if any of these people appreciated irony, they would take Speaker Newt Gingrich up on his proposal that we hold gun control hearings in Chicago, which just happens to have both the strictest gun control laws in the country and three times the murder rate of New York City, and double that of Los Angeles. How can that be? There’s a real head scratcher.
Lame duck Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta dropped a bomb while going out the door, lifting the ban on women surviving directly in combat, a decision no doubt calculated by the One’s administration to be less politically radioactive if done by someone who is leaving Washington to return to his walnuts in California. With sequestration looming, three more Americans killed in Algeria in the aftermath of the “Arab spring,” and al Qaeda clearly not decimated, but on the march, is this hat tip to political correctness, another shiny object that they hope will distract us from their disastrous foreign policy? What will be the impact on our military? We’ll get the 411 from our guest Elaine Donnelly, of the Center for Military Readiness.
Also joining us will be Leslie Eastman, contributor to the terrific blog, Legal Insurrection and member of the San Diego Tea Party. We’ll get her take on what the GOP needs to do to get its mojo back, and time permitting, ask her her opinion of Pat Robertson’s latest “there he goes again.” You didn’t hear about that? Don’t miss it!
