Going GaGa


 Acknowledgements to, and paraphrasing, Michelle Obama:  For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am embarassed for my country.  Okay, it has been coming on for, oh, about two years and five months now, but this time I have to actually say it.

     All you have to do is be barely conscious to know that the United States and its allies, Western Civilization, indeed the many reaches of international intercourse, cooperation and otherwise peaceful relations and commerce  are disrupted, dysfunctional, in conflict and in dire straits.  And yet…..and yet……there is this:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday that the State Department played an instrumental role in “sealing the deal” for pop-rock star Lady Gaga to perform at a gay pride rally in Rome, Italy


     What does it take? What does it take for a Congressional committee to haul the Secretary of State’s broad beam up to capitol hill, for it’s chairman to call for absolute silence in the hearing room, and to begin the ….discussion….by demanding of Her Hillaryness “Madame Secretary, the United States of America is engaged in shooting wars on at least two fronts, ruthless dictators are engaged in developing and assembling weapons of mass destruction with which to threaten, terrorize and possibly use against us and our allies. The world’s economies are in chaos, exacerbating those situations; the Middle East is ablaze in protest, revolt, and  slaughter.  Our only capable democratic ally in the Middle East, the State of Israel, is under threat and often physical attack by radical regimes and terrorist groups, and the so-called ‘peace process’ which you yourself announced to the world a year ago should be wrapping up, oh, right about now, is in shambles.    And now we find, to our great consternation, Madame Secretary,  that your State Department, and you personally, are busy facilitating the the assimilation of homosexual exhibitionism, not to mention promoting the professional career and stature of one of  its most outrageous proponents, into not only our nation and our culture, but somehow presuming to do so to the nations and cultures of our allies in the name of the United States Government?

     “Sealing the deal?  Madame Secretary there are indeed deals to be sealed.  Madame Secretary, what were you thinking?  Madame Secretary, what are you thinking?”

Poor. No advanced degrees. Unorganized. Feeble. Disjointed. Random. Past it. .... Intrigued, Interested, Patriotic and Lucky.
