Obama: Steroids, Stimulus, and Lincoln

February 14, 2009

The establishment’s admiration for Honest Abe appears to grow in proportion to its dishonesty. A week of low national deceptions culminated in celebrations of Lincoln’s 200th birthday. Out came historians known for plagiarizing to deliver pious speeches before politicians who lie.

It is like an endless Charlie Rose panel, with the usual strained and pretentious throat-clearing. “Somehow Lincoln has worked himself into Obama’s heart and mind, and it’s a good thing to have Lincoln as your mentor,” Doris Kearns Goodwin, the Pulitzer Prize-winning plagiarist, said to the press.

This revival of Lincoln nostalgia has to be a form of delusional self-aggrandizement. Obama seems to be encouraging this renewed cult of Lincoln in egotistical anticipation of his own. Lincoln made “my story possible,” he said. CNN teed up its coverage with the modest title, “From Lincoln to Obama.”

A nodding liberal elite trots out Goodwin to extol Lincoln’s virtues of probity while presiding over an age of non-stop fraud — an age that solves recession by printing money, solves crime by repealing laws, solves illiteracy by eliminating tests, and solves homelessness by mandating bad loans.

And they are shocked at Alex Rodriguez? Why? Haven’t they noticed that lying has become the national pastime? He cheated on the field; they cheat in Congressional offices, board rooms, and bureaucracies. He took steroids; they take special-interests stimulus.

Nothing is what it appears, not even the inevitable confessions which are as carefully contrived as the crimes. A daily, indistinct mass of dishonesty washes over the public in a boring cycle of indifferent sin and contrition. Every crime, no matter how high or low, is merely a “mistake,” something on the order of lost car keys.

February 7, 2009

Nothing and no one is sacred.

Alex Rodriguez got all those great looking hits and women by using performanc enhancing drugs and Michael Phelps is just an aquatic pot head.

Geez.

Oh, the humanity!

“You’ll have to talk to the union,” A-Rod said. 

That’s a new low if it is a denial.

Michael said, “Got any Cheetos?”

He’ll be in the pool from now on….

Save your Corn Flakes box bearing Michael’s image.  That’s a real collectors item now and the only “image” he has left with many parents…
