Kids, it’s a new year, and while I am adamantly opposed to New Year’s resolutions (if you know that your rear end is as a wide as barn door, should you really wait until January 1 to do something about it? Gov. Christie, I’m talking to you. OK, Michelle, you can wait until you get back to the Mainland), I think it’s a good opportunity to put a few rules in place that will make life, or at least Lame Stream Media reporting, a little easier for us to take going forward. My legacy media friends, please consider the following a list of topics on the “do not cover” list for 2014.
While it’s tempting to suggest the predictable subjects that need to go away, the icky mess that oozes out of the slime pit that is our popular culture on a regular basis, as in the Mileys, the Kardarshians, and the other highlights of network “news” shows like Good Moron America, you are too smart for that. So, I present a less obvious suggested list of items that we’ll all be better off hearing less about in the new year.
Disillusioned Obama Supporters
Suddenly, we’re told that many of those who helped foist a Marxist cabal, determined to “transform” our great country on it, have buyers’ remorse. We tried to warn them, not once, but twice, but they were too drunk on all that hopey changey stuff that they wouldn’t listen. It isn’t just the wet-behind-the-ears whiny millennials, now rechristened “young invincibles.” Arguably, they can be forgiven for buying into Barack Obama’s slick con because their lack of life experience rendered them particularly susceptible to being taken in. Unfortunately, they weren’t the only ones. I personally know of men and women fully growed who drank the Obama Kool-Aid. Some of them were even from Obama’s home state, the national fiscal basket case and laughingstock, Illinois, so they had no excuse.
Even in 2004, anyone paying attention who cared a fig about the future of the country knew, or should have known, that voting for this clown, even for U.S. Senate, was a vote for destroying the country we grew up in. Every single thing in his history from his radical associations, his writings, his public statements, his insane racist preacher, and his voting record, told anyone with a few functioning brain cells everything that they needed to know. So, please spare us any nauseating reports about these fools wringing their hands and wondering what in the world could have happened. Gee, you got in the car with a guy wasted out of his mind, and you were nearly killed in a head-on collision. Why? Why? The humanity! Unfortunately, Thelma and Louise, you took us over the cliff with you.
Celebrities “Coming Out”
It’s clear that all the cool kids are doing it, and by “it,” I mean revealing that they are involved in “committed same sex relationships,” or, if not committed, at least not yet, are actually homosexuals. Guess what? NO ONE cares how you choose to experience sexual pleasure. Some of us actually like the idea of certain aspects of a person’s private life remaining private. We think that “don’t ask, don’t tell” made a lot of sense, and we don’t define other people by which of their body parts they like to rub against other people’s. We also wonder why you do define yourselves that way, and why you seem so desperate for our approval for your lifestyle choices. We aren’t going to ever approve of or endorse your homosexual behavior, no matter how many celebrities “come out.” We’re ok with live and let live though. Why aren’t you?
A couple of days ago, the Jurassic media breathlessly reported on a Gallup poll that designated Hillary Rodham Clinton the most admired woman in America, right in front of the Oprah and Michelle Obama. If they are going to insist on taking these polls in the news rooms of the 20th century over the air networks and the New York Times, they are going to keep getting these same results. I’m sorry, but the New York Times‘ efforts to rehabilitate her disgraceful Benghazi failure notwithstanding, Hillary Clinton is a walking disaster. She has a reverse Midas touch, as in everything she touches turns to excrement. That liberals could greet her cringe-inducing screeching answer before a Congressional committee to a question about the murder of four Americans on her watch as absolutely brilliant tells us everything we need to know about how disconnected from reality they are. Remember when Barack’s consigliere, Chicago Way practitioner Valerie Jarrett, explained the unique problem that the One has as follows:
I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. … He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. … So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. … He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.
If the last five years have shown us anything, it’s that far from being “too talented to do what ordinary people do,” we would be charitable to characterize Barack Obama is merely in over his head. Ditto Hillary Clinton, and every other liberal “genius” that is the subject of the latest liberal media propaganda.
That should do it for now. Carry on.
