It looks like we’ll be bringing the “tea” trolly out early again today.
We’ve had a new round of defections, starting with old twinkly-eyed MoDo, ensconced over at our favorite old school newsprint, the NYT.
Would you look at this:
Obama is still suffering from the Speech Illusion, the idea that he can come down from the mountain, read from a Teleprompter, cast a magic spell with his words and climb back up the mountain, while we scurry around and do what he proclaimed.
I have to tell you – if this illusion is done, Big Guy’s done: he IS the illusion. How dare she even insinuate such a ridiculous notion?
It looks like MoDo has gotten caught up in the very same histrionics that allow progressives to be so empathetic in the first place. If we can just convince her that none of this reflects badly on her, I think we stand a chance of wooing her back.
Butt the type of disloyalty reflected in MoDo’s column today is even worse than it appears on the surface. Big Guy’s perceived loss of status and popularity is starting to reflect on even Lady M’s huge popularity – can you believe it! Yes, as Clarice points out, MO’s starting to taking it on her new chin too.
That is so patently unfair. And
racist sexist. And see how long she’s going to still be proud of her country if this keeps up.
Indeed, if this interferes with our Bali
vacation foreign relations/trade trip, I can assure you there will be hell to pay. If you don’t like the enforced reduction in salt, fat and sugar in your food stuffs now – just wait till you see what Lady M intends to mandate if she gets stuck in this Big White hell-hole until her Winter Holiday trip to Hawaii.
If you feel like you’ve been set adrift in a government dictated food desert of tasteless food up till now, wait until you see the desert of “MO’s revenge.”
And if we actually have to cancel Bali, I really don’t think Big Guy should plan on accompanying the family to the big island for the holidays this year.
Butt getting back to MoDo’s treasonous pen:
The White House team is flailing — reacting, regrouping, retrenching. It’s repugnant.
After pushing and shoving and caving to get on TV, the president’s advisers immediately began warning that the long-yearned-for jobs speech wasn’t going to be that awe-inspiring. (snip)
The arc of justice is stuck at the top of a mountain. Maybe Obama was not even the person he was waiting for.
Whoa! “Repugnant?” That is harsh. Butt don’t worry. Big Guy hasn’t lost all of his magic. He still knows how to lure the prodigal children back into the family:
H/T Linda Smith
And if that doesn’t work, well, we’ve still got a few tricks up our sleeves:
Fortunately, tomorrow is Labor Day, and we’ll be rallying the troops in Detroit.
