They Also Serve Who Only Stand and Wait

I had a restless night, and every time I woke the television was playing the same thing, over and over again. I thought I was having the vapors until I realized that little Mo had tuned the TeeVee to a movie channel that was having a “Ground Hog Day” marathon. What a relief! We’ve got enough déjà vu going on around here with that whole Egyptian mess.

So let’s talk about other things, because after his address last night it look’s like Big Guy has the Egypt situation under control.

little presBO said the orderly transition "must be meaningful, must be peaceful, and must begin now." He was talking about the end of Mubarak’s government, not Obamacare.

I don’t know though, I just switched over to Fox News (I needed to use my tinfoil to tune it in, since it’s been blocked here at the Big White) and it looks like the chaos in Cairo has evolved into violent pandemonium. Maybe they haven’t heard Big Guy’s speech yet.

Other Big White events you should probably know about as you go about your daily business: a tiny little faux pas the other night involving Big Guy’s trusted Chicago advisor, ValJar.

You know the old saying “To a hammer, every problem looks like a nail?” Well, it looks like it has a corollary:  “To an imperialist, every uniform looks like a waiter.”

Ok, Ok, it’s true. Val did ask a decorated US General to fetch her a glass of wine at a black tie dinner. Butt for goodness sake let’s take all of the circumstances into consideration before we jump to conclusions. For starters, the affair was held at the Alfalfa Club. The Alfalfa Club!? Isn’t that just a little racist?


Furthermore, Val worked hard to become an advisor to the Won: how about we just show her a little respect here.

And to be fair, had Big Guy been there, he likely would have thought the Corpseman looked like a waiter too. Racism has a way of making you view everything as a victim, which leads you to believe you are entitled to reparations, which naturally makes everyone your vassal.

So I hope you can see that this whole little mistake had nothing to do with elitism, and everything to do with racism.Butt there you go, making Val the victim all over again. Shame on you.
