I know, I know…since the dawn of the Obama Era, irony has become as ubiquitous as the sunrise, and through its cumulative effect, toxic to the Republic, which I’m sure is all part of the plan.  Nonetheless, after a week like this one, I can only conclude that our self-appointed betters and “thought leaders (now there’s an irony for you)” have decided that they have succeeded in creating a climate of apathy and ignorance so strong that no statement, and no circumstance is too outrageous to tumble from their lips.  The sad thing is, I think that they might be right, as this week seems to prove…

First on this week is the “Reverend” Al Sharpton.  Yes, the “drug informant” Al Sharpton, who brought us this spectacularly polished turd:

“I think that the message is, no matter what the world may do to unfairly, no matter how your crucified, nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.[“]

Put aside the garbage where he’s trying to link the meaning of Easter to Barack Obama.

This is really, really bad theology.  Easter is about sin, a price that mankind would never be able to pay for redemption, and the willing sacrifice of God’s son to pay that price for ALL OF US, and to conquer death.  That doesn’t happen without Christ, no matter how much those who worship government try to convince us that we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.  An awful lot of rhetorical sulphur he’s preaching.  I think he might want to study up on what the book says about that kind of behavior.

Next up are the usual suspects with regard to Chelsea Clinton’s announcement  at the “Girls No Ceilings Conversation” event in New York City:

“One more thing to say very quickly,” the 34-year-old addressed the crowd. “Mark and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year. I certainly feel all the better whether it’s a girl or a boy that they’ll grow up in a world with so many strong female leaders…”

Now, given the positive reaction from the crowd, one can only assume that they believe that she will be going to a store and purchasing a baby when she thinks that the time is right, because otherwise, she would be referring to a lump of cells that she has a sacrosanct right to terminate at anytime because it isn’t a “child” or “baby”…at least that’s what wymyn’s groups and blood money grubbers like Planned Parenthood keep telling us.

Hillary couldn’t help but to also chime in:

“I’m expecting a grand child which I’m very excited about. We’re very excited about what’s happening in our family but we’re also very excited about what we’re doing.”

Congratulations, kid.  Grams needs a political prop, so you get to be born!

And our final entry on this week’s hit parade.  Fresh off of questions regarding his son’s motivations for wanting the land that Clive Bundy ranches on in Nevada, and scrutiny of the connections between himself and the head of the Bureau of Land Management (and after previously being in the news for diverting campaign funds to his grand-daughter), Harry had this to say about the Federal Government’s aborted attempt to “shock and awe” the prickly rancher in to submission to his Federal betters:

 “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said.

Given Harry’s misappropriation of campaign money and his apparent intimate knowledge of private citizen’s Federal tax returns, such as Mitt Romney, the Koch Brothers, and Clive Bundy, I guess that means that we’ll soon be treated to the sight of Harry “I-Never-Met-A-Budget-I’d-Pass” Reid being marched out of the Senate in handcuffs.

Yeah, I know.  The law is only for little people, and those who happen to not be Democrats.   Yea for “fundamental change”.

For a while now, some conservative pundits and individuals have portrayed our current political predicament as being akin to the “zombie apocalypse”.  It is an easy comparison to make, and it isn’t even a new one, as demonstrated by our friend, Packy East, in this clip:

But ask I drove to work this morning, listing to a discussion about the ridiculous and costly nature of public sector unions, and how government, led by the EPA, was standing in the way of what should be a very simple infrastructure improvement that would allow American businesses to remain competitive moving forward into the 21st Century, and this story about the Bureau of Land Management harassing a rancher in southern Nevada, I realized that the zombie analogy wasn’t entirely accurate.

Don’t get me wrong.  I think the zombies are still out there, shuffling along, and multiplying quickly, but I realized this morning that there is a better analogy of the relationship between our government and its citizens:

I trust no further explanation is necessary.

Those who are paying attention will get it.

Those accustomed to stupid government tricks will get it.

The zombies will engage in ad hominems to prevent others from getting it.

The grievance pimps will take to their fainting couches with wicked, crippling cases of the vapors.

And it will still be true.

There was a lot of discussion today in the blogosphere about the exceedingly biased and silly coverage of the April 15 Tea Parties around the nation.  Their cynicism was matched only by their contempt.  Its alright.  They will carry the water for the Left…all the way to bankruptcy, and that’s fine.  If the fact that they have completely discredited themselves doesn’t bother them, it doesn’t bother me.  In fact, I welcome the silence that will come when their soapboxes are taken from them and given to their creditors in the oblivion that they are racing towards.  No, what irritates me is when people in my own government forget their place and start casting aspersions toward the people they are supposed to serve.  Case in point?

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.)

Congresswoman Schakowski opined that yesterday’s tea parties were “despicable” and “shameful.”

Consider that for a moment.  A member of Congress, an elected official stated that the peaceful assembly of MILLIONS of Americans across the country to protest an out-of-control government Hell-bent on enslaving us to debt that we will NEVER be able to pay off decided to show her level of comprehension and understanding by calling the gatherings “despicable” and shameful.”

Despicable Des”pi*ca*ble\, a. [L. despicabilis, fr. despicari to despise; akin to despicere. See Despise.] Fit or deserving to be despised; contemptible; mean; vile; worthless; as, a despicable man; despicable company; a despicable gift. Syn: Contemptible; mean; vile; worthless; pitiful; paltry; sordid; low; base. See Contemptible. Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary, © 1996, 1998 MICRA, Inc.

Shameful Shame”ful\, a. 1. Bringing shame or disgrace; injurious to reputation; disgraceful. His naval preparations were not more surprising than his quick and shameful retreat. –Arbuthnot. 2. Exciting the feeling of shame in others; indecent; as, a shameful picture; a shameful sight. –Spenser. Syn: Disgraceful; reproachful; indecent; unbecoming; degrading; scandalous; ignominious; infamous. — Shame”ful*ly, adv. — Shame”ful*ness, n.

Doesn’t really seem to fit, does it?  While I’m relieved that Mensa doesn’t have to worry about reviewing her application for admission, I am sad that her village is missing its idiot.  Every village needs its idiot to hold out as an example to its children of how not to be when they grow up.

Who is Congresswoman Schakowski?  She is a career politician.  She was elected to her sixth term in Congress last November, and before her first election to the United States House of Representatives, she served for eight years in the Illinois General Assembly.  Before that?  From her website:

For twenty years prior to her election to the State House, Schakowsky fought for the public interest and rights of Illinois citizens. As Program Director of Illinois Public Action (1976-1985), the state’s largest public interest organization, she fought for energy reform and stronger protection from toxic chemicals. As Director of the Illinois State Council of Senior Citizens from 1985-1990, she organized across the state for lower cost prescription drugs and tax relief for seniors, financial protection for the spouses of nursing home residents and other benefits for the elderly. She has been deeply involved in the fight to protect women’s reproductive freedom.

Think about what this doesn’t say.  It doesn’t say she has ever held a real job.  It doesn’t say she has ever taken the risk of being an entrepreneur.  It doesn’t say that she has ever had to make a payroll.  What it does say is that she has spent nearly twenty years in elected office, and more than a decade in Washington D.C., which is more than enough time to lose touch with the concerns of everyday Americans, assuming that she ever was in touch with them to begin with.

It also doesn’t tell you that her husband, Robert Creamer, pleaded gulity to tax violations and bank fraud for writing rubber checks and failing to collect withholding tax from an employee.  The Honorable Congresswoman’s response toher spouse’s guilty pleas:

“In my heart, I know that these mistakes do not define or diminish this good man, or the good work that he has done over the last 40 years or that he will do in the future,” Schakowsky, D-Ill., said after her husband’s court hearing.

I forgot.  Character doesn’t matter when you are a Democrat, or married to one.  But the money quote?

Schakowsky, who lives in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, said she doesn’t think her husband’s plea would prompt a primary challenge next year in her heavily Democratic district.

The sad thing is, she was correct.  Still, one wonders just how much training is required to denounce the people who are unhappy about paying the bill for your idiotic spending spree that will undeniably transform the nation and force government dependency on us all, and yet fail to recognize the application of your chosen charges against the American people to your own spouse, who violated the law and failed to pay taxes.  That is a special brand of hypocrisy.  Perhaps we should refer to it as the “Democratic Standard”…you know, the one that is different from the one applied to you and me.

Think she needs to hear about it?  Me too.  Drop her a line at:

Washington, D.C.
2367 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
Phone: (202) 225-2111
Fax: (202) 226-6890

And maybe you can send her a dictionary while your at it.
