OK, your top fund raiser is indicted and singing like a sexy Blues diva from Southside Chicago. Your own daddy-in-law claimed, repeatedly and in public, that you were selling offices for $40K contributions to your campaign. (Richard Mell, a long-time Chicago Pol, not only criticized Bloggo’s technique, but his brazen, open, overt, corrupt scheming, as well as how Bloggo targeted Mell’s own investments and business dealings in retribution) Others in your administration were indicted and talking. Your former top aide was squealing like a pig to the Feds.
While Ronald Reagan slept through his second term as president, two very different groups, with virtually nothing in common, joined forces and engineered the take over of the political party that gave us the Emancipation Proclamation, freed the slaves, created the EPA, negotiated SALT treaties, and did much more good for the nation.
Given the grate economic news we are getting, it is time to change the tone. We need to laugh, smile, smirk, snort, snuggle and be nice to everyone we meet, as hard as that can be at times. A recession since 2007? You mean Bush, Bernenke and Paulson all lied to us throughout 2008? I’m SHOCKED! SHOCKED, I tell you.
So, to change the mood, the Church of Ineffable Stupidity is holding a sillier than usual sermon today, and invites everyone to tell a tall tale of their own. So without further ado, and without further rusting of the lily:
Bah. Bah! Humbug!
— Pastor Agnostic, practicing his Christmas Cheer
FROM THE CHURCH OF INEFFABLE STUPIDITY:
During the last years of Clinton’s presidency, and for the first six years of the (increasingly apparent criminal) Bush Cabal, both the House and Senate were controlled by one party. The GOP had a throttle over the entire government, including the DOJ, the courts, and the all important agencies. (EPA, NASA, SSN, and dozens more)
Oops, I forgot. Between bribes, pay-offs, faux news plants, and direct and indirect pressures, the Bush Cabal also had a decent grip on the media. So much for its so-called liberal bias, not when Sunday political talk shows sought out GOP stalking heads 60% or more of the time.
A confluence of events has arrived here and now. The last eight years of hell, as several European and Asian leaders have suggested, albeit off the record, are coming to a close.
Yesterday, Senator Obama met with the top briefers from the NSA, CIA, DIA. He was given a history lesson (info which never makes the front pages) and the best insights that all our hundreds of billions in technology can give us. Of course, our intel units are still seriously hampered by having no human based info, but, that’s an issue for another day.
History was made last night, and the whole world breathed a huge sigh of relief. African nations created new holidays, Europeans greeted America back to the Roll of Civilized Nations, and Asians were seen crying with joy. Russia’s Pravda News called it the “welcome end of eight years of hell.” You have to hand it to Pravda. They really have our number these days.
As promised, Senator Barack Obama infotained Americans for thirty minutes, starting off with amber waves of grain. Hope, change, plus incredibly coincidental family spotlights in several “battleground” states – that seemed to be his basic message.
1636 – The Massachusetts General Court provided 400 pounds to support a school or college, and so, Harvard University was founded in Cambridge, MA.
1904 – Fingerprinting was first used by the St. Louis Police Department.
COINCIDENCE? I THINK NOT!
As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.
