Look out Saturday Night Live, the Democratic Party is now poised to become the biggest comedy show in the country. Stars include Hillary “Rob ‘Em” Clinton, Howard Mean, Schmucky Schumer, Turbin Durbin, Teddy “Bare” Kennedy, John “Flipper” Kerry, Nancy “Talking Points” Pelosi, Barbara Boxhead, Al Bore to name a few. The New York Junior Senator’s recent soul sister routine on Martin Luther King Day is the most recent in a long string of embarrassing efforts to be “one of the people”. In fact, this isn’t the first time Clinton has gone into her funky white girl mode with a black audience….she really needs to get some lessons from New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin and work on her rap. You gotta bet that there were good folks in that audience muttering under their breath, “girl get out of our neighborhood.”
Then there was Al Bore during the 2000 Presidential Election screaming, and I mean screaming, to a black congregation from a church pulpit how the “Lord will be revealed” (surely if he is elected). Whew…dodged that bullet didn’t we. And then there was John Kerry walking into a gun shop in Pennsylvania during the 2004 presidential election and asking “is this where I get me a huntin’ license” in an effort to secure the good ol’ boy vote. Yep, I sure would like to sit around a campfire with Ol’ Flipper and bang back a few Old Milwaukees while he talks about his global test. Would that be a multiple choice test to cover his many positions on one issue? Never mind, it’s complicated. Why any of these instances weren’t eviscerated by the main stream media the way President Bush Number One was when he didn’t quite know what to do with a checkout scanning device at the supermarket is beyond comprehension since they are all so transparently phony. Next up, Harry “Dingy” Reid covers Archie Bell and the Drells’ “Do The Tighten Up.”
This is the same party of the people that now wants to use the judicial system to overturn the will of the people. After the 2000 election Kennedy accurately observed that liberals and the Democratic Party were losing at the ballot box at the State and Federal levels. He went on to say that they must hang on to their power in the courts. Hhhmmm…..not interested in the will of the people and wants to hang on to power. Rather telling I’d say. Of course his performance during the Alito hearings was McCarthyesque, Joseph that is. Much like Senator Boxer’s questioning of Secretary Rice during her confirmation hearings. Kennedy’s own hypocrisy quickly came to light. And then you have People’s Party Chairman Howard Mean declaring that it’s not the Democrats job to put forward any meaningful plan for the future, rather just to stop President Bush and Republicans. And People’s Party Minority Leader Pelosi echoes the same sentiment regarding the Democrats’ approach to the War in Iraq. Sounds like blocking the will of the people again to me and with nothing to offer as an alternative.
Lest anyone think this is one of those so called “right wing nuts” writing this, I have in fact voted for Democratic candidates in the past and will again if Joe Lieberman runs. And I have taken what may be regarded as a “liberal” stance on certain issues. But I sure know a bunch of phonies when I see them and I know a Party that is dominated by them. And I also know that it’s the people of this country who should be deciding public policy, not judges and not the politicians that want to stop the will of the people.
Get down, get funky, get real….. and you know what I’m talkin’ about.
