Outside the Asylum
President Barack Obama’s signature achievement coughed up more reminders late last week that it would probably work just as well had it been implemented by whoever writes all those kicky one-liners for Vice President Joe Biden.
No matter what your opinion of Nelson Mandela, you can’t argue that he was super-duper famous. His funeral was the biggest-ticket event of year. If a man’s measure can be taken by his funeral, then Mandela leaves the world with a gaping hole in its A-list photo ops that not even Jay-Z can fill.
Confronted with a vexing relative, Barack Obama automatically defaulted to dishonesty. Obama lied. Obama always lies. If Obama were just another liquor store clerk, his lying would be creepy and sad. But Obama is the President of the United States.
It’s almost as if the left simply refuses to comprehend it, despite its simplicity. Americans will not pay more for the borderline-toxic trimmings and unidentifiable animal parts that we call “fast food.” They’re never going to convince anyone that a “McRib” should cost $14.
Whether it’s a crowd trampling some poor security guard to death at the 5 a.m. Doorbuster Black Friday sale at the mall or someone stabbing someone else over the chance to buy an Xbox One or PlayStation 4, I’m still routinely unprepared for the holiday season headlines of mayhem and manslaughter amid the mirth and merriment.
I wish you all a sincerely happy Thanksgiving Day. May your holiday be filled with family, fun and enough caloric excess to keep you in a permanent food coma through the New Year. Here are a few suggestions for a festive holiday.
Last Thursday, the Senate Democrats, led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), committed what might have been the most important assassination in 50 years. In a shocking move, Reid murdered the lone protection against a misguided Congressional majority: the Senate filibuster.
According to Oprah Winfrey, President Barack Obama’s endless series of scandals stem not from his comic incompetence, nor from his seemingly pathological mendacity. Much like poor Winfrey herself, Obama is stymied by that old serpent: racism.
After the past week, I’m almost surprised MSNBC is showing more than a test pattern. The “talent” that now serves as the tip of the Democratic Party’s media spear has managed, in the past seven days, to plumb depths that are normally inhabited by leftist hate speech sites funded by former Nazi collaborator George Soros.
For someone the Democrats have declared irrelevant, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin seems to be surprisingly relevant. According to the left, Palin hasn’t been a real factor since 2008. Yet every time she so much as makes a run to the grocery store, liberals scrutinize her behavior.
