Well here’s a simple wrap-up of my views after watching what I predicted would be a failed attempt at using their prime time news networks to further exemplify what was their stupidly conceived, bogus construct to start with: I haven’t heard so much vacuous gibberish since Barack Obama’s last pre-convention speech.
Of course at their convention, the star of the Dems’ mendacious, contrived “War On Women” claptrap was a bitter, selfish, government-reliant young nobody, Sandra Fluke, a perfect Obama-era Democrat, who has now taken her rightful place in history alongside American Idol’s William Hung. She banged-out a bunch of left-wing nonsense so dumb, I hoped all America was watching. Coincidentally perhaps, Hung is the failed Idol contestant who in 2004 — around the time of Barack Obama’s rise to the top of the heap, became famous for his hideous rendition of Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs.” Though he was serious, it was embarrassing — embarrassingly stupid. In this case, Fluke is confirmed as a rather unintelligent useful idiot, a whiner, a twit, self-deluded, self-entitled — the whole shebang.
Author and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan put it best:
What a fabulously confident and ingenuous-seeming political narcissist Ms. Fluke is. She really does think—and her party apparently thinks—that in a spending crisis with trillions in debt and many in need, in a nation in existential doubt as to its standing and purpose, in a time when parents struggle to buy the good sneakers for the kids so they’re not embarrassed at school . . . that in that nation the great issue of the day, and the appropriate focus of our concern, is making other people pay for her birth-control pills. That’s not a stand, it’s a non sequitur. She is not, as Rush Limbaugh oafishly, bullyingly said, a slut. She is a ninny, a narcissist and a fool.
For his indispensable part, the Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer put it just as truthfully and painfully plainly:
Angry, humorless and entitled. Not a good combination. Her cause? Free contraception. Translation: A Georgetown law school grad like her (average private-sector starting salary: $160,000) demands that her birth control be paid for by everyone else (median household income: $51,000).
Otherwise, women are denied access to contraception, as if gendarmes are to be posted at every pharmacy in America to turn women away. This, I gathered, is the new civil rights issue of our time.
Just so. So much total unimportant, purposely distracting, infantile tripe from a party whose nominee for president, the current sitting president, promised (in 2008) such a new open, honest era of post-partisan politics, and an end to America’s grave, real problems. He better get on the horn with Hung and get Hung’s PR agent’s number.
