Okay, why are we being inundated on the interwebs with stupid Sarah Palin quotes again?
Why, why, why, why?
Can it be that my lib brethren and sisteren are quivering under the covers with petrification that Palin is somehow going to rise Phoenix-like over the American political scene again? Ask me, that’s got about as much chance of happening as my beloved Chicago Cubs winning the 2014 World Series.
And if Palin does somehow become a political figure with whom to reckon once again, this holy land would be de facto dead in the water anyway, so why worry?
Another Sorry Dem
Hillary Clinton got herself in hot water this week by likening Vlad Putin’s swoop into the Crimea to the actions of a certain Right Wing dictator who wore a funny mustache.
Now, HRC is being forced to backtrack and explain herself because, as we know, the use of Hitler analogies is ever so unfair.
Only it’s those on the Right who are wringing their hands and rolling their eyes over the analogy. An analogy, BTW, that way, way, way too many of them use to describe a certain dark-skinned man who pushes pencils around the Oval Office.
As always, The Pencil is here to clear up any confusions.
Nothing To Apologize For
Barack Obama is not Hitler. Neither are Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, or any others who don’t quite believe that Sarah Palin is a thoughtful, serious observer of the world condition.
OTOH, what Putin has done in the Crimea is absolutely, positively, very much like what Hitler did throughout the late 1930s. That is, ID a hot spot where the existing gov’t is about to topple and which contains a significant number of citizens who share said tryrant’s language and ethnicity, go in under the guise of rescuing the poor, downtrodden ethnic group, and then, voila!, take the joint over.
Yeah, that’s Hitler (and Putin) all the way. Stop apologizing Hillary!
The house organ for the weak-kneed liberal sect of the American body politic, the Huffington Post, ran this headline in its right-hand-column teasers last night:
No Link Necessary
And, no, I don’t need to explain what HuffPo‘s tittery euphemism is referring to. I suspect a child of 11 could catch the drift.
My question: Is this a drift anyone with a working cerebrum would want to catch?
And, finally, scientists are coming to the conclusion that dolphins have homicidal tendencies.
Sharks & Jets? No, Dolphin & Porpoise
Those who view the “natural” world as a Bambi cartoon have long asserted that critters don’t kill for fun, only humans do.
Funny isn’t it? Perhaps the more intelligence a being has, the more likely it’ll be to bump off another being for sport, pleasure, or just because it’s bored.
