This is going in Just for Fun because there’s nothing I enjoy any more than a great rant. Even when the subject and the rant are serious, the quality makes me smile.
Ace has a great one on Obama’s remarkable pride in his great accomplishment: He managed to produce secondary identification. Yeah for him!
You really need to pop over and read the whole thing and watch the video. Ace has clearly been enjoying the Value-Rite and it’s paid off for him. A clip to show you what I mean:
Obama’s greatest victory of the entire past year — his crowning achievement for the past twelve months in the most powerful office in all the world — is his celebrated triumph in successfully producing a common form of secondary identification.
As of right now, that’s what he’s running on: That he, like 88% of all non-incarcerated adults in America, has access to his own personal records.
And for the past two nights I’ve endured Chris Matthews telling me about Obama’s “brilliant” “Perry Mason moment,” how masterful he was in all of this.
This is what he’s doing victory laps on right now. That’s what Chris Matthews is praising him to the heavens for. He’s grinning like King S#!t of F**k Mountain, and bathing in rapturous applause, because he accomplished something considerably less difficult than opening a Netflix account.
Pardon the word — are we not treating the President of the United States like a retard? Are we not, perhaps, condescending to him in indulging him like this?
This is his big initiative for the month? He showed a piece of identification?
Years from now, looking back at the “good times,” he’ll turn to a former adviser and say, “Remember — remember when I produced the s#!t out of that birth certificate? Like a Warrior-Poet I made a routine request of a petty bureaucrat for a mundane copy of a run of the mill record. Days of wine and roses that was, days of… Glory.”
As they say, read the whole thing.
