I was just enjoying a sampling of left-wing panic articles about the prospect of a pre-election selection of RBG’s replacement on the Supreme Court. You know it seems like only yesterday that the press and the Democrats were employing libel and slander on an industrial scale against Brett Kavanaugh without any concern for how it poisoned any possibility of civility or bipartisanship in the Senate. And now they are hurling around terms like hypocrisy and unconscionable when talking about the Republican senate voting on a replacement for RBG. They’re saying it’s inappropriate and uncivil and cruel. Well, isn’t that special.
You know above and beyond how good it would be to decrease the number of lefties on the Supreme Court I am just overjoyed to see the Left shrieking and howling about this situation. These are horrible people and anything that makes them angry and/or afraid is a gift from heaven and “a consummation devoutly to be wish’d.” It is wonderful to see a milquetoast fellow like Lindsey Graham feeling his oats and maybe even displaying a little schadenfreude toward the colleagues that put him and the rest of the senate Republicans through hell during the Kavanaugh hearings. Seeing him get up on his hind legs and sound like a man just shows what the Democrats have stirred up with their scorched earth approach to hard ball politics. They’ve made lots of enemies and when they need friends there aren’t any colleagues on the other side of the aisle willing to reach across to lend a hand. And after having their hands bitten before who could blame them?
And it is said that McConnell has the votes. Of course, that is horse trading and maybe they’ve paid off Romney to keep him from stabbing us in the back again or maybe that one extra vote from Pence is all that’s needed to put them over the top. But just the fact that President Trump and Mitch McConnell are game enough to go forward speaks volumes about how this presidency differs from the lame Republican administrations of the past. Bush I and Bush II would have acquiesced as soon as the first shriek from the harpies was reported in the press. In fact, even after giving in to them the Democrats and the press would still have taken the opportunity to pillory Bush as a monster for even thinking of such a hate crime.
When President Trump heard that Pelosi was threatening to impeach him again. His answer was that he hoped she did. Now that’s the right answer. Never back down, never apologize for doing what makes sense and hit back at them any way you can. And just as a point of information didn’t Dorothy dropped a house on her back in 1939? Or was it a pail of water?
I expect a concerted effort after the announcement to vilify the candidate any way they can. Of course, since it’s going to be a woman the rape angle is going to be a really hard sell. Maybe they’ll try to find a girl from her high school or grammar school that claims the applicant was mean to her. It’s a little weaker than the Kavanaugh treatment but they’ll have to go with what they can make up on the fly. If necessary, they’ll have a séance and have the ghost of RBG denounce the nominee as not a real woman for lacking abortion enthusiasm.
Feeling this happy about the suffering of some of my fellow human beings might be taken to mean that I’m a terrible person but I believe that if Mother Theresa were alive today, she’d be on my side. These are awful people and them getting their comeuppance is poetic justice.
Anyway, another good week for the President. Onward and upward and make the Lefties squeal like stuck pigs.
Over the course of the post-Reagan republican clown parade we have seen many sorry excuses for conservatives. And from where I was watching the Bushes were not even the worst of them. Now, don’t get me wrong. I think that George Herbert Walker Bush was the political equivalent of the Civil War’s General Burnside. Burnside was a general so disastrously incompetent that during the closing days of the Civil War upon hearing of his latest battlefield disaster Lincoln was alleged to have said that “Only Burnside could have managed such a coup, wringing one last spectacular defeat from the jaws of victory.” I do not make this comparison idly. Here is a man who was handed the presidency on a silver platter from Ronald Reagan’s hands and in only four years lost it to a combination of Ross Perot and the trailer trash chasing Governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton. Yes, the Bushes have much to be ashamed of as fake conservatives. And the outpouring of stupidity they have provided during and since the 2016 election only confirms their terrible political skills and lack of the common touch.
Or, I could wax poetic about that “maverick,” that “Reagan foot soldier,” John McCain but his health status makes me squeamish about pummeling him with the truth. We could talk about !JEB! We could talk about W. But without a doubt the worst example of republican empty suit syndrome is Willard Mitt Romney. The whole country has had a chance to enjoy Mittens during his disastrous attempt at the presidency. The Press had a field day with the photo of his dog riding in a crate on top of the family SUV and the infamous “binders full of women” shows how unable this man was to confront even the most inept partisan attacks against him. And his craven supine caving to Democrat and MSM demands that he turn on Trump during the election was pure Romney gold.
But in order to really see Mitt at his best you had to live in Massachusetts during the time when Romney tried challenging Ted Kennedy for his senate seat and then later during Romney’s tenure as Governor of the Bay State. During his senate campaign he said, “I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country.” Now this is a Mormon making this statement. The official Mormon stance on abortion says, “Human life is a sacred gift from God. Elective abortion for personal or social convenience is contrary to the will and the commandments of God. Church members who submit to, perform, encourage, pay for, or arrange for such abortions may lose their membership in the Church.” As a mitigating circumstance you could say that in a liberal state like Massachusetts anyone not claiming a pro-choice position had no chance of gaining elective office. And the answer to that would be that a Mormon shouldn’t run for elective office in Massachusetts.
But Mitt had any number of pratfalls in Massachusetts. While Governor his administration was blamed for some tiles falling from the ceiling of the newly built Big Dig tunnel and killing a passing driver. Now the tunnel was built by the various crooked business interests that flourished under the Democratic Massachusetts House and Senate leaders who doled out the contracts as patronage rewards and squandered the federal funds and the State taxes used. But Mitt took the blame with never a peep and almost seemed to enjoy the abuse that was heaped on him by the various rats in the legislature and press who better than anyone knew who was really to blame for the shoddy construction and outrageous price tag of the Big Dig. And this is the real shame of the GOPe. They never fight. They just sit there and take it. And even worse, they attack anyone who dares to fight back. Instead of applauding Trump for defending himself they go out of their way to virtue signal to the press that they are more outraged than the Democrats at the shameless refusal to kowtow to scurrilous attacks. “How dare Trump not cower like a true republican!”
But it appears the jig may be up. In the last few months even the most dependably invertebrate members of the GOPe seem to be figuring out that you actually can beat the MSM game. After seeing what happens when they work together with President Trump even such weak-kneed arthropods as Lindsey Graham are jumping on the Trump bandwagon and benefitting from the realization that acting like a man is possible for a republican. Can you imagine what would happen if they survive the midterms without losing either chamber, maybe even making gains?
I’m almost afraid of what this trend could portend. Will we see the likes of Lindsey Graham parading around the Senate floor sporting gold chains and flashing gang signs and talking trash about D’s who got curb stomped by the Notorious DT? Man, I hope not. But if we do, I only hope Romney doesn’t catch it too. The image of Mitt with a gold grill and twin glocks would probably finish me off, laughing.
