Random Thoughts from a “Delusional Drunk”

Low Expectations:  The good thing about being an affirmative action President is that people have low expectations of you. When you exceed those very low expectations, certain persons who ought to know better start drooling all over themselves about what a great president you are.  Ed “brain-dead” Morrissey at Hot Air and Charles Krauthammer were two such drooling individuals after The Obamster’s speech about Tucson. 

Here’s a break-down on the “logic” of their thinking.  Obama should attempt to heal the country. Instead, he’ll probably use the speech to attack Palin, Beck, and the Tea Partiers–heck, such an attack is right out of “Rules for Radicals.”  After all, he’s been having his surrogates attack them for over a week without saying a word to stop the attacks. Oh, LOOKY LOOKY!  He did not attack them! he did the right thing [for once]!  Therefore, it was a very good speech, and Obama is wonderful, and all is well with the world. 

Obama’s re-election chances: On my recent foray into Florida I had a chance to talk with my sister and brother in-law felt about Obama.  Background: My sister is a high school graduate and my brother in-low is a 9th grade drop out.  Both have had to earn a living at hard labor jobs. Him, working in the shop, her at waitressing and cooking. They carved out a good life, purchasing 40 acres in the Michigan north, and successfully raising a family, until a wreck took away his ability to work.  They lost the family farm to bankruptcy and retired to Florida to live with my mother and care for her in her final years. 

They do not have internet.  They do not watch or listen to the news. My sister lightly reads the paper.  Otherwise, they are oblivious to the cares and concerns of the outside world.  My mother lived thusly, at least before her recent illness. 

And all three of them voted for Obama, much to my chagrin. I only bring this up to point out that now all three hate the job that Obama is doing, and are embarrassed that they fell for his “hope and change” bull shit rhetoric. My sister is so enraged at how she was taken in by his lies that she has vowed to never again vote in any political election. (I’m trying to get her to at least vote once in the next presidential election, to atone for her last vote.)  And they try to claim that Fox News viewers are “uninformed.  Anecdotal evidence of Obama’s demise, I know, but if you’ve lost the uninformed who were suckered in the first time, your work is cut out for you to get re-elected.

I could care less that the Tucson lunatic shot Federal Officials:  Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t wish what he did on anybody.  But I don’t care any more about the fact that he shot a Congresswoman or a Federal judge. To me, they are not “worth” more than the typical victim of a lunatic.  In fact, I’m more upset about the death of the 9-year-old girl. To me, elected officials are what are known in the legal field as “fungible.” One is the same as the other; they are interchangeable (all about equally as bad). I would not feel badly if a congress woman or a federal judge were killed in an automobile accident. Not because I am un-caring, but because I do not assign more worth to their lives than to any other person’s life.

On the other hand, if this had been the work of a political operative, or some political conspiracy. I’m reminded of the scene in “The God Father” where Don Corleone met with all the other God Fathers. He wanted a truce in order to bring Michael back from Sicily.  He said something to the effect that if anything happened to Michael, whether he was hit by lightning, or he suffered a fall, whatever, then he would not forgive his enemies. Similarly, if something happens to say Sarah Palin or Glen Beck, or any other conservative spokesperson at the hands of a liberal/progressive/socialist punk, “That I cannot forgive.” In such case, I would care, greatly. Maybe even to the point of exacting revenge.  Likewise, I would assume that the Democrats would feel the same way had this shooting been political.  But it wasn’t.  It was no different from say the Safeway parking lot being hit by a meteorite. I’m “sorry” that they were hurt, just as much but no more than I am sorry that Haiti got hit by a terrible quake, and several people died on the highways during this last weekend, and children are starving in Africa.  Hate to say it, but I think the media is overblowing this entire incident.  Hey, don’t hate, I’m just being honest.

  1. You know, political rhetoric is actually more tame today than it was in the day of our fore fathers. I mean, they accused each other of “animal husbandry”, if ya catch my drift, consorting with whores, ect. and challenged each other to duels over the least slight. I think I recall reading somewhere of fisticuffs happening in the halls of Congress back in the day.

    The only difference between then and now, is we have instantaneous access to news 24/7/365. Read some of the comments on these blogs and at the bottom of the articles. Some people say things to others over the internet that they wouldn’t say to the person’s face.

  2. One Senator beat another senseless in the well of the Senate. Can’t recall his name. I have a whole list of Senators who need the shit beat out of them…

  3. When my wife started to tell me about the shooting in Arizona, my reaction disappointed her. I seemed rather heartless to her. It was, “well, what did you expect?” At that point, I did not know who had been shot, why, by whom, or how many. She had just told me someone had shot a congressman, and she could not understand why I was more disgusted than concerned.

    There is a big difference between the political rhetoric of today and that of yesteryear. Now the buffoons in Congress recognize no restraints. In their quest for self-importance, they seek unlimited power. With such power they will gain greater recognition than perhaps they ever wanted. Nuts, whackos, and many more just plain, rightfully angry constituents will want to know their names and where they live. So every single one of these self-important busybodies will need Secret Service protection.

    If ever Utopia fully arrives, then we will see gated communities as never before. Our leaders will not bother to hide the fact we do not have government of the People, by the People, or for the People. Instead, the busybodies will explain that they are the beautiful people, that they rightfully themselves apart from the ugly failures, those unsuited for perfect government. And those failures, those who labor and give up all their natural rights for the sake of Utopia, will exist in angry squalor.
