Don’t ever do this – Please!

When I saw a post today describing how the Obama campaign would like to be part of your wedding, etc. registry  I really did not believe it was real.

So sure was I that this was a fake story, I actually went to the Obama for America site, because I had to see this one with my own eyes.

{SIGH} It’s all too real.  Including the fake cheerful and youthful, yet mangled (gravy BOWL?) syntax.  Including the comments which range from loyally supportive to understandably snarky to downright mean as Mrs. Obama might say.

But what, exactly, are they saying here?  The first thought that comes to mind is “boy, these people are really desperate for money”, something with which even I can sympathize.  The second thought is that Obama and Co. seek to interject themselves into the most private, joyful moments of their supporters’ lives, with their hands out for money.

Like an insidious begger importuning a couple on a date, they accost you and request a share of something they should never even think they had a claim on.

Very, extremely creepy.  And rude.

Many on the Left probably wouldn’t believe this, but there is a debate taking place on the Right these days and I’ll sum it up this way: should we get down in the gutter with them, or do we continue to try and be better?

John Boehner’s recent advice to his house colleauges not to “spike the football” if Obama care is struck down by the SCOTUS is a pretty good example of the “be better” school.

Andrew Breitbart’s  entire life was a shining example of the “get down in the gutter” mode.

And, like with the Death Penalty, I usually sit on the fence over this.  My kid tells me “it’s important that we’re better, that’s a big part of why we’re right and they’re wrong” and I think she’s correct.  I’d like to think I’d cut my throat with a rusty razor blade before I’d say things about Mrs. Obama or the Obama daughters or pretty much anybody else like the things that those on the Left have said about Sarah Palin, her daughters and so many others.

But, the IRISH part of me always wants to jump in the gutter and start swinging.  In fact, I’m happy if you give me an excuse!

So, I’m torn.  But not today, today I am all on the “be better” side.

Please, please Mitt Romney, Republicans, Libertarians, Conservatives, Moderates, PLEASE DON’T EVER DO THIS!!!!!

Elizabeth Warren, Big Chief Bullshit Artist

So, I’m breaking a personal rule here and just using the word bullshit in all its vulgar stridency.

Because it’s important, it’s for the children, it’s truth to power.

Nah, that’s all bullshit too.  It’s because Elizabeth Warren is gosh darn annoying.

Ms. Warren has been revealed to have, in a squirmy, wriggling sort of way self-identified as a Native American in the past.  It is presumed by many that she did this in order to advance her career (and the facts revealed in the Washington Secrets column regarding her credentials vs. those of her peers is certainly intriguing if not dispositive) and stopped doing it when no further boosting was necessary.  What nobody, and I mean nobody, believes is that she did it to “meet friends” or  find those “who are like” she is.  Unless, of course, she was looking for late feminist bullshit artists who want to become one of the 1% without losing touch with their Inner Other.

That is the purest bullshit.

I remember years ago hearing that college degrees are more properly understood as BS (bullshit) MS (more shit) PhD (piled higher and deeper).  I suppose Esquire Warren has a JD so I guess that stands for jumbo dung heap.

I do believe that she was told by her family that she had Native American ancestry.  But that’s the thing about bullshit, as this book  indicates, it doesn’t have to be a lie.  In fact, most bullshit isn’t a lie, it’s some truth used in the furtherance of a short cut, a get around, a get over.

And that was how Warren used her ancestry, just as she has tried to name herself the originator of the occupy movement, and just as she is now furiously spinning to get out of the web she wove.  And get this, in searching for that link, I see Ms. Warren was a registered Republican into her 40s!  Did Harvard know about that?

People like this are tiresome.  They don’t really want to do the hard work.  They just want to get over, get some for themselves, keep as much of it as they can, and tell you that you are not doing enough for others.  By which they mean you are not giving THEM enough money to do what they think best with.

They think the public are fools, and if they are members of the Democratic party they are pretty sure they can get away with their bullshit.
