Outside the Asylum
Russia is downright Third World when it comes to almost any reasonable standards. Things don’t work right in Russia. Yet the Sochi Games serve as a stern reminder: Russia might be Third World, but we’re definitely third place in the world these days.
The bank and auto bailouts, the “green” energy scams, the gunrunning disasters, the terrorism cover-ups, the domestic spying, the Internal Revenue Service bullying and Obamacare all got their green lights from Kelo v. City of New London.
Witness the sad decline of ABC News’ aging newsmagazine 20/20. While it never achieved the notability of 60 Minutes, it likewise never dove headfirst into the deep end of the crazed activism of its neighbors like Dateline NBC. But then last week, 20/20 served up “Young Guns.”
There’s no shortage of irony in a looming snowstorm belting the Deep South on the same night President Barack Obama will likely announce executive orders to combat so-called “global warming.” Moments like this make me realize the blissful cocoon of ignorance in which liberals spend most of their lives.
America passed a milestone last week. The Democrats threw a super soiree, and even President Barack Obama commemorated the big day. Why wouldn’t he? It’s not every day that the President of the United States gets to wish a happy birthday to an entire industry dedicated to keeping birthdays from happening.
If not for the fact that rising leftist star and Texas State Senator Wendy Davis has become the poster girl for the abortion industry, she’d be little more than a local curiosity. But Davis loves abortion, so we’re supposed to overlook the fact that her resume might as well be printed on rainbow paper and include a job as a unicorn wrangler.
Less than a week before the Nation observed Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, The New Yorker published a story about President Barack Obama in which he was quoted playing the race card: “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President.”
In the event that you live under a rock, have been trapped under something really heavy or are only just now returning from an all-expenses-paid, 5-star, 17-day getaway in a tropical paradise, I bring news. Hillary Clinton is officially running for President of the United States.
Thanks. Seriously, from the bottom of my heart, I offer to you my most profound gratitude. It took New Jersey Governor Chris Christie channeling the ghost of Tony Soprano to get you guys to come out against government corruption, but I’m not going to complain.
Like any good son, I call my mother every week. I sit through the usual litany of complaints about how I don’t call enough, I don’t visit enough, etc. Sometimes, Mom gives me both barrels. Take last Sunday. Mom turned to a topic that disappoints her more than I ever could have: politicians.
