Time to sock it to someone, again?

It’s a strange to hear all of our conservative pundits sounding so shocked by Barack Obama’s nerve to spend a little time on a comedy channel show. Perhaps they didn’t know about or don’t remember that the very Republican Richard M. Nixon himself once made a comic appearance on the NBC show “Laugh In”, of course it was prior to being forced to resign his office in shame, much like his former vice president, Spiro T. Agnew did to avoid prison time.

The White President days, life was simpler then.

Even stranger how provident it is for the Republicans that an international bomb plot, one that was aimed at the USA and originated in Yemen, has been exposed for the world to see.

And what a grand gift it is, as it arrives just in time for the mid-term elections.

You know, it really is almost like a gift for them, I’d even go so far as to say it’s kind of like a shake it up “Reichstag snow globe” gift.

This is merely a coincidence I’m sure, nothing to look at here, just move along and vote for the party that knows how to take care of such issues.

“Sock it to me”, indeed.

    It’s always fun to listen to people who say Americans are exceptional people and would never succumb to fear-mongering or dictatorships. After all, aren’t we an enlightened democracy?

    In 1933 Germany was an enlightened democracy and a country of exceptional people, but it suffered the economic repercussions of a war (it started), then recession, deprivation, inflation, and generalized fear of the present and the future. And then someone came along who glorified German history and promised a country based on the purity of the old days. First it had to rid itself of those things that had brought it to it’s knees: not the majority of the people, certainly, but the government and some of the people had to go.

    So in 1933 an election was held in this enlightened, educated land and, of the 34,000,000 votes cast, 14,000,000 went to one person, and the remaining 20,000,000 were scattered amongst a diverse assortment of people. Of course the one person with about 39% of country’s support won. He had many followers who were willing to make absolutely certain that his/their vision of a glorious future became true. Things were good for some people for awhile, for others, not so good. Then he carried his message into other countries who tried unsuccessfully to resist him. Finally, his message got squashed under deprivation, fear, and tons of bombs. Twelve years after his election he killed himself.

    As I said, it’s always fun to listen to people who say that we Americans are exceptional folk who would never give way to fear-mongering or dictatorships.
