Update: The Treasury Inspector General Report is out proving to the DailyKooks that you’re not paranoid if you really are being followed. We wanted to weep as we read it but then we pictured Michelle Obama scowling angrily at her lunkhead husband and we laughed.
Two of our favorite quotes of the day:
“For fear of stating the obvious,” Kuhnhenn began, “the White House right now is confronting a confluence of issues: Benghazi talking points, IRS reviews of political groups, Justice Department’s review of journalists’ phone records, and in every instance either the president or you have placed the burden of responsibility someplace else… But it is the president’s administration, so I wonder, doesn’t responsibility for setting tone, for setting direction ultimately rest with the president on these matters?”
“Before taking a few questions,” McConnell said, “let me just add one thing. As you continue to file your stories on this subject, ask yourself before you write, how would I be writing this story if this were a Republican administration?”
Now that it is their interests threatened, their colleagues investigated, their god that failed – some in Big Media are bitter and full of remorse –
It’s sad to think of all those young people who so believed in HOPE and CHANGE now so disillusioned on the political system as they discover they cast, some for the very first time, their valuable vote for a cheap hustler from Chicago with less ethics and smarts than Richard M. Nixon. Many of these young voters, Barack Obama promised, would be so proud of their first vote for Barack Obama that they would become lifelong churchgoers in the cult of Obama Dimocratic worship. To think of the heartbreak of black voters who cast content of character aside in favor of the skin color of an Obama who has destroyed in so many ways the present and future of the black community. It’s sad to think of the older, mostly white liberal voters, who so foolishly sneered at common sense to vote for an inexperienced, cheap, Chicago hustler – they said reminded them ever so much of the young and dashing John F. Kennedy of their youth. Now these old fools discover they voted for worse than Richard M. Nixon.
How sad it is to… oh… well… who are we kidding? It’s not sad at all. We’re not hypocrites. It’s not sad at all. Truth be told we are, uncorked champagne bottles at hand, luxuuuuuuuuuuriating in the mud bath swamps imported from Chicago to the nation at large. After our mud bath we’re headed to Blacks Fifth Avenue so that Olga will give us a fresh coat of Jungle Red on our fingernails.
For now, in our Chicago imported buckets of mud, bath we reminisce sweetly of our Big Media friends. We recall with fondness an ABC anchor of their then prestigious evening news telecast who once literally saved our lives in a valley in Pennsylvania. We also remember, with a smirk, that top financial reporter who pleasured a much older woman friend of ours and after every liaison with the cougar he would break off the relationship. This dance heightened as this top reporter became engaged to another woman but still he visited our cougar friend. Even when he married, the nocturnal visits continued as did the early morning breakup farewells. We would see our friend regularly and it became a regular custom to ask her “how is Mr. hump and dump?” A wan, satisfied smile would cross her lips as she lit a Dunhill Blue. That reporter eventually did leave – his job – to work for one of the most powerful broadsheet publications.
We recall another reporter who was known to have many “toys” with which to pleasure himself and the strangely beautiful “boys” he frequently had dinner with. Another prominent reporter we knew, now on a national broadcast, had some lovely leather strap garments he regularly wore on his nightly club rounds. We can’t really count how many of the boys on the bus we knew had a Jeff Chandler style proclivity for lovely undergarments even though they were indisputably heterosexual. There was also that curly haired operatic beauty that works for the widest circulation newspaper who was so anal retentive and on bitter edge her stool regularly had blood in it. Ah, memories. There are many more but we don’t have too much time as Olga is usually fully booked and we shouldn’t be late for our manicure.
We recall these lovely stories of the ladies and gentlemen of the press because of the latest Barack Obama scandal to erupt. We’re talking the AP DOJ scandal.
How sad, that the ladies and gentlemen of the press who so whored themselves in service to Barack Obama now find themselves “humped and dumped“. Or are they battered wives who crave attention from their love even if it is a beating?
In the hierarchy of Barack Obama scandals the AP DOJ scandal is without doubt the most important to the ladies and gentlemen of the press. It’s NOT because these ladies and gentlemen are concerned about their “sources” as they so loftily proclaim – suddenly awake to the importance of the Constitution (though not the Second Amendment – that’s for those “bitter clingers”).
No, what has the ladies and gentlemen who hide behind constitutional protections when it affects them is neither the Constitution nor the plight of their sources. What the ladies and gentlemen of the press are scared about is the laughably named Department of Justice having possession of their personal phone records. The phone records which contain phone numbers of their dominatrix brothels, drug dealers (you can’t stay up all night without a little blow now can you?), boyfriends/girlfriends of the paid for variety (they are ever so busy so who has the time for romance when you can hump and sign?), doctor appointments for those anal warts and herpes, and who knows what other depredations. Not that there’s anything wrong with it.
There’s also that little matter of Finlandization. If the “Department of Justice” has their phone records maybe they should be a bit careful in what they write. There’s no need for a threat, the Soviet never had to actually threaten Finland, you just know they know that you know that they know and so you keep your mouth shut.
What does the scandal cascade teach us about trust in government power? Beware of power. Beware of power because it corrupts. Beware of giving power to the corrupt because they become even more corrupt. That’s how Republics fall.
The strength of our republic is a system of checks and balances which has almost failed because of Big Media corruption. But there is still hope to rescue ourselves and our system of government.
Today on another Barack Obama scandal front we hear from Darrell Issa: No way we’re going to let Obama administration investigate the IRS by itself. That’s fine but not enough. From Eric Holder we hear has recused himself from the AP Big Media whores offline phone records scandal. That certainly is not enough.
We need special prosecutors. We need select committees from both houses of congress. For now, until after the 2014 elections, we’ll have to settle for select committees from the House of Representatives. We’re going to need a Judge Sirica. We’re going to need a Woodward/Bernstein and that entity won’t emerge from Big Media. The new Woodward/Bernstein will have to come from the internets.
We need investigations with subpoena power to follow up on what the new Woodward/Bernsteins write. The Investigations must be thorough. Don’t bother with a scapel – get a chain saw.
It’s time to savagely rip open the source of the corruption and remove the cancer on the presidency.
