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.

The Whole Week Seems “Blown” as A-Rod, Michael Phelps Under a Cloud

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.

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…

Inauguration Crowd on Steroids; Event Participants Needed Xanax

January 21, 2009

The Chinese would have seen so many bad omens they’d mostly call President Obama “Not Lucky” after yesterday’s Inauguration.

The oath was botched.

Two Senators needed medical attention before the end of lunch.

Rick Warren’s prayer was only applauded by his Mom, apparently.

The Speech? Gerard Baker of The Times in London was looking for some “Kennedy-esque, or Rooseveltian quotations for the ages.”

He was disappointed.

The crowd was on steroids.  The event participants needed Xanax.

But, like a family wedding that features a drunken uncle or broken china, the job got done.

So, enough fol-de-rol.  Let’s get to work.

Mumbai Gunmen Used Cocaine to Stay Awake During Terror Siege

December 3, 2008

 

The terrorists involved in a 60-hour standoff in Mumbai used cocaine and other drugs to stay awake while they battled Indian commandos, the U.K.’s Telegraph newspaper reported.

The gunmen, who reportedly received months of special marine training in Pakistan to prepare them for the attacks, also used steroids to strengthen themselves, the paper reported.
.
“These men were all toned, suggesting they had been doing some heavy training for the attacks,” an official told The Telegraph. “This explains why they managed to battle the commandos for over 50 hours with no food or sleep.”

The only terrorist to be captured alive after the siege said the group were members of the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taibat. At least 172 people were killed in the attacks.

Terrorists who battled Indian commandos for 60-hours last week relied on cocaine and other stimulants to stay awake for the duration of the fight.

Officials said drug paraphernalia, including syringes, was recovered from the scene of the attacks, which killed almost 200 people.

The heavily built men, who had undergone training at a special marine camp established by the Lashkar-e-Taibat (LeT) terrorist group in Pakistan, had also used steroids to build a tougher physique.

“We found injections containing traces of cocaine and LSD left behind by the terrorists and later found drugs in their blood,” said one official.

“There was also evidence of steroids, which isn’t uncommon in terrorists.

“These men were all toned, suggesting they had been doing some heavy training for the attacks. This explains why they managed to battle the commandos for over 50 hours with no food or sleep.”

One terrorist used the drugs to keep on fighting despite suffering a life-threatening injury.

Drugs are commonly used in India by workers in jobs where a lack of sleep is demanded, such as truck drivers and security guards.
