The fierce urgency of political-speak as usual...



Today's Washington Post gave me more taste of political-speak than I can handle in one day. The only reason I have grabbed my rosary, crucifix, string of garlic, holy water, and a drum of Pepto Bismol to write about it is that in one article, I can try one more time to demonstrate to you that both parties suck. They both suck. They really do. Watch carefully. First Robert Gibbs with the press yesterday.

MR. GIBBS: Well, I think the question is a good one. I think that -- I think maybe the best question, though, is for you to ask individual Republicans whether they agree with what Rush Limbaugh said this weekend. Do they want to see the President's economic agenda fail? You know, I bet there are a number of guests on television throughout the day and maybe into tomorrow who could let America know whether they agree with what Rush Limbaugh said this weekend.


Here's Limbaugh's whole statement.

No! I want him to fail." If his agenda is a far-left collectivism -- some people say socialism -- as a conservative heartfelt, deeply, why would I want socialism to succeed?


While the entire thought won't change a Limbaugh detractor's opinion, it is a very different statement. My intent is not to defend Limbaugh's statement. I can understand it on an intellectual level. If Obama really wanted Soviet-style socialism for this country, I would hope he fails at that.

On one side we have the, "Let's not let the fact that this little snippet of what he said is different than what he really said or meant stop us."

Democrats down. I'm half way there.

This last weekend, Michael Steele, RNC Chairman goes on CNN and distances himself from Limbaugh and his opinions.

On Monday, the very same Michael Steele, tries to call Limbaugh to express his, "enormous respect," and tells Politico that, "I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. . . . There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership."

On the other side, we have, "This is the press and Americans have short attention spans. I'm sure my massive, titanic flip flop won't cause any motion sickness."

Republicans down. The finish line (unless you really think I need to cover the Whigs).

On one side, we have a politician who says someone said something they didn't. On the other side, we have a politician saying everything no matter how mutually exclusive they may be. I'm sure if I keep my eyes open, I will be able to find an article where the roles flip.

There you are, children. Another example provided free of charge. If you haven't figured it out yet, they're all politicians and they all, GET IT, sucks!

P.S. At least I got to read about the updated products from Apple, otherwise I would have had to do myself in.

The 'powers that be' have us so confused that their intent is to keep us confused. They want us to focus on the trivial while they come in with the right-hook.
I have never been a fan of Limbaugh, but I, like you, understand what he said. I don't want socialism either and I believe that if O's plan works it will be a no win situation for us,the American people.
Oh, and don't forget the anointing oil and the scapulars. This coming from a former Catholic school girl.
