Speaking of bums…

22 December 2011

So Sen. Sensenbrenner is overheard in a private phone conversation (where’s the outrage over this invasion of the Senator’s privacy?!) making a statement indicating Chewbacca’s – er, the First Lady’s utter hypocrisy in preaching how we and our kids should eat more “organically” and more nutritiously, while, in turn, repeatedly stuffing her face with fatty ribs, cheeseburgers, pizza, fries, ice cream and the like. Immediately, he has come under fire by that bastion of balanced news reporting and opinion, The Huffington “Press” and about every other sycophantic “news” outlet – some even going to the extreme of claiming the First Wookiee has “a kick-ass body”.

Where does this end, this Øbama worship? Yes, Michelle Øbama is not the epitome of flabbiness, but she is far, far from the epitome of that which she preaches all of us need to be. And her hypocrisy is well documented. And, for “journalist” Ellie Krupnick to claim that Michelle Øbama’s butt is excused because it’s “natural” sounds like a bit of thinly-veiled racism to me  – and suggests that the likes of Naomi Campbell, Beyonce Knowles, etc., having small, attractive posteriors are then unnatural?

Let’s be clear. When I stop hearing about Michelle Øbama scarfing down all the “taboo” foods she would have removed from our diets; when I stop hearing about her famed husband’s smoking, maybe then I would at least listen to her health-preaching without rolling my eyes and shaking my head in disbelief. Until then, it is too much of the “holier than thou”, “do what I say; not as I do” re-purposed digested bull-food we are used to receiving from politicians – particularly liberal politicians, and especially the pair currently occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Throw the bums out.

Republicans Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Dean Heller of Nevada, Richard G. Lugar of Indiana and Olympia J. Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine called on the House to change course…” – CQ

Ah, I see that list includes the usual suspects – with the delightful addition of that conservative liberal from Massachusetts we all had misplaced such high hopes – and misplaced trust – in. I would be happiest to hear that The House called on these liberals-cum-Republicans to change course themselves. And Mitch “Cave-In” McConnell, too, while they’re at it. Better would be having their electorate decisively show them that chameleons are not tolerated.

Folks, this is a very clear demonstration of politicians preserving their re-election chances rather than performing their sworn duty to preserve The Union. Be sure to note these, every one. And be sure to oppose their re-election in any primary race. If they make it through a primary, or are not challenged, are they better than electing one of the current crop of Democrats in their place? Marginally. Only marginally. At least any Democrat could be recognized through their choice of clothing…

Separation of Branches

Separation of The Powers - Øbama-Style

“In Venezuela, we have been deeply concerned to see action taken to restrict the freedom of the press, and to erode the separation of powers that is necessary for democracy to thrive.”  – Barack Øbama

Really? He went there? Øbama is concerned about someone else following his playbook?

Between the US mainstream media “getting a quiver up its leg” every time Da Øne speaks, and the influence of socialist financiers such as George Soros, we have no freedom of the press. Quite the contrary: we have the continuous droning of the leftist apparatchik. Yes, you can write whatever you like, but, unless it supports the editorial view, the likelihood of it getting into any of the liberal, sycophantic magazines, newspapers, or news shows of today is pretty close to zero. Unfortunately, media outlets of these categories are the norm.

And his fear of the erosion of the separation of powers in Venezuela  rings a bit hollow when you review his track record of choosing the most activist, socialistic judges for the Supreme Court (and lower courts) ever appointed and his habit of getting his way via Executive Order.

Sounds a bit like the pot calling the kettle black.

Just about got the Legislature...
