NEWS TO MUSE: Upsetting Hizzoner, Olbermann Benched and the Pelosi Pitiful Ploy

Is Rahm Emanuel upset?

News flash from my old home town of Chicago!  Machine mayor and Obama confidant, Rahm Emanuel, has been forced into a run off by former State Senator Jesus “Chuy” Garcia – as have a number of Emanuel backed alderman.  Given a political personality akin to that of a Mafia hit man, I am assuming Hizzoner is breaking up the furniture in his office while spew a tourettes-style series of profanities at underlings.  The two man race is still a daunting challenge for Garcia, but doable.  The election of a Republican governor in the very blue land of Obama was the first indicator that the old Democrat Machine is beginning to sputter and backfire.  This also presents a big challenge to Obama.  Does he go to bat for his former chief-of-staff and offend the Hispanic community, turn is back on Emanuel for the Hispanic vote or stay away altogether?  Since he has no reason to personally give a damn about the Hispanic vote, I suspect he will do something to try to keep Chicago’s blacks from abandoning the Machine.  Stay tuned.

Keith Olbermann gets sophomoric with college kids.

I guess if you have too much angst for MSNBC, you really need to consider therapy.  Keith Olbermann, who was bounced from MSNBC for being to … shall we politely say … too outspoken, has just received a modest tap on his pinky from ESPN for getting into a low level Twitter peeing contest with Penn State students and alumni.  Olbermann employed his highest intellectual tactic – name calling.  “Pitiful” and “moron” were his words of choice in this encounter.  ESPN took him off the air, with pay, for a few days.   They called it a “suspension,” but I think it is more of a cooling off period.  Honestly, I am not sure if Keith should be presented the Alec Baldwin Anger Management Prize or Alec Baldwin should get the Keith Olbermann Childish Outbursts Award.   And the winner is …

Partisanship in the Eye of the Beholder

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu took a pass on attending a Democrats-only private meeting offered by Democrat Minority Leader (love that title for her) Nancy Pelosi and Senator Dick where-is-the-camera Durbin.  This was to balance out his public speech before the entire United States Congress.  As the Democrat spin goes, Bibi should meet privately with only Democrats because he is meeting with a Congress led by Republicans, albeit with lots of Democrats in membership – most of whom will be attending the speech.  Pelosi, Durbin et al contend that an appearance before both Republicans and Democrats in Congress is partisan, and that a meeting privately with Democrats only would solve that.  I am beginning to think that when partisan zealotry becomes too strong, logical thinking ceases.  It is what has become known as “liberal lunacy.”

The First Installment of LIBERALS GONE WILD

It is said that those the god’s would destroy, they first make crazy.  If that is true, the political left is about to be crushed.  To wit:

  1. Consider the West Virginia University story.  Liberals still trying to give relevancy to a phony rape story that appeared in Rolling Stones.  The issue is not really about campus rapes.  It is now about fraudulent left-wing journalism, but … shhh … don’t tell them.
  2. The defense of Jonathan Gruber.  His only defense against blurting out the truth in moments of braggadocio is to try to convince the Congress and the public that, despite being an MIT professor, he is dumber then a goober.  We already knew that.  He did not have to double down.
  3. Speaking of Gruber.  Did you see his testimony?  When ask individually, if he remembered each taped statement, he said “yes” – and said they were due to his trying to sound smarter than he is.  Then later, when ask about ALL his statements, he said he did not recall making them.  Geez, if you going to lie, you need a better memory.
  4. Then there is the black kid interviewed by Stossel who said looting is ok because they have to make a point.  I thought the point of looting was to make off with the goods.
  5. Let us not forget about Hillary Clinton’s plea to have respect and empathy for those whose favorite sport event is a double beheader.  How about we limit our kinder feelings for their widows and orphans?  And may their numbers increase.
  6. Obama has now risen to the rank of a serial denier, having again denied saying things despite the existence of videos with him saying the things he denies having said.  Why did the word “pathological” pop into my mind?
  7. ACLU, which for a decade wanted to toss the entire Bush administration in jail for war crimes, now wants the entire Bush administration to be pardoned by Obama.  They say this will PROVE they were all guilty.  The head of the ACLU says it will make an important point.  You mean a point like the ACLU has lost traction with reality.  Not making this up, folks.
  8. The libs are all giddy over a decade old issue of alleged torture level interrogation by the CIA that ended in 2009.  This came in the form of a Democrats-only 6000 page investigation report, for which not a single CIA person was interviewed.  They do not expect anyone to be held accountable.  Still, they say it is a public service. Really!  It will tarnish the image of the United States, give critics ammunition, strain relationships  with allies, aid in the recruitment of American hating terrorists and may actually cause some hard working Americans to be killed.  The only tangible outcome so far is putting America on heightened alert.  Dumb is one thing, but dangerously dumb is scary.  Good job, Feinstein and all you Senate Democrats.
  9. If you think Democrats have not fallen off the sanity wagon, you missed White House explainer, Josh (not-so) Earnest latest spin – or maybe “squirm” is a better word.  The White House damns the actions of the CIA and praises Obama’s appointment of the men who were in charge to more important positions.  And then this … Earnest trying (and not too successfully) to explain why making a captured terrorist feel fear and a bit of intestinal discomfort is less humane than blowing him up, including women and children, with drones directed by the President.  Obama just thinks “war is oh, heck.”
  10. Obama makes the Reverend Al (if-the-IRS-calls-I’m-not-in) Sharpton his lead advisor on race baiting … ooops…. race relations. That is akin to making Vladimir Putin an ambassador of goodwill to the Ukraine.
  11. Joe Biden.  Is that rascal trying out for both parts in “Dumb and Dumber?”
  12. New York Mayor deBlasio must really not like white cops.  He recently said he taught his black son of the dangers of being black in the face of biased white police.  And now, he insists that only a black cop can be hired to fill a vacancy on his security detail.  Now you know how racism works in the Democratic Party.
  13. Rather than releasing Gitmo prisoners without proper supervision and restrictions, Obama just sent some to Uruguay, so THEY can release them without supervision or restrictions.  The President of Uruguay said the soon-again-to-be terrorists are free men and may leave the country at any time.
  14. The Obama immigration policy is based on his belief that if you offer jobs, benefits and amnesty they WON’T come.  This worked so well last time … eh … Mr. President?  His message to the new “arrivals?”  If you like our country, you can keep it.
  15. Eric Holder was FAST to give Mexican drug gangs free guns, but he is now FURIOUS that so many people are upset that the guns were actually used to kill people.  What did he think they would do with the guns?  Use them for croquet mallets
  16. Nancy (reading-bills-is-not-part-of-my-job) Pelosi called Hamas, one of the groups on our terrorist list, a humanitarian organization.  I guess if you come from the same culture as the Mafia, you might come to that conclusion.  (I’m going to catch Hell from my Italian relatives for that one – and deservedly so.)
  17. Harry Reid insists that paying taxes is purely voluntary in America.  Yes, he really says that – and if you are so inclined, go check out the video on the Internet.  He just may have gotten that impression from talking to Al Sharpton.

Well, I have to stop here.  If you wish to share you examples of LIBERALS GONE WILD, feel free.
