First presser in five months yesterday.
Big Guy maneuvered skillfully around a bunch of questions on controversial subjects: Iran, Israel, Syria, Rush Limbaugh…Rush Limbaugh!?!
Well technically the question involved Rush’s sponsors bailing, and whether liberal commentators should be held to the same standard. Although this is hardly an issue that ought to be raised to the Presidential level; that didn’t stop Big Guy from responding gamely. He sidestepped the sponsor issue, ignored the part about liberal double standards,
butt took the opportunity to elaborate on his phone call to Ms. Fluke, which everyone was really interested in.
And the reason I called Ms. Fluke is because I thought about Malia and Sasha… I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don't want them attacked or called horrible names because they're being good citizens. And I wanted Sandra to know that I thought her parents should be proud of her, and that we want to send a message to all our young people that being part of a democracy involves argument and disagreements and debate, [ed. As long as you’re on the right side of the debate, of course] and we want you to be engaged, and there's a way to do it that doesn't involve you being demeaned and insulted, [ed. Here’s a learning moment: if you say stupid things, it’s easier for people to demean and insult you.] particularly when you’re a private citizen.
Or as Allahpundit summarized it: I don’t like to see private citizens insulted for speaking up.
That’s good. I wonder if that theory holds for police officers too? Like, for what they do in the line of duty? When they aren’t acting stupidly, I mean?
Anyway, here are some things that, strangely, nobody asked about at yesterday’s presser, probably because we ran out of time: the deficit, Solyndra, et.al., squandering federal dollars, Fast and Furious, the “shameful” and “outrageous” bonuses being paid to bankrupt Big Green Energy company executives.
Meanwhile, back on the WTF 2012 front, I know the R-words were busy with their respective Super-Tuesday victory parties last night. I’m not even going to get into that. Oh sure, I have my favorite, butt I think I could work with any of them:
Calista, Ann, Karen: finalists in the FLOTUS challenge round
And while only one of them seems to know how to smile naturally, I can deal with that. However, I think they could all use a little work on the hair. Calista needs to lighten up a bit on the lacquer: she has fewer hairs out of place than Mitt. Even he finally got the “perfect to a fault” point.
Although if the Newt loses, I think I can get Cali a lucrative Nike endorsement.
Ann – and this is ironic, Mitt being so well coifed and all – has a few too many hairs out of place. She could use a little help in the hair department too. Starting with a good trim. My goodness, how many times do I have to tell these 60-something women? I don’t care how good you look otherwise, below chin length hair is no longer your friend.
Just trust me on this,okay?
Karen might be the most challenging of all, even though she’s the youngest by far. She seems to have that angry-mouth-at-rest thing going on, butt I’ve got a lot of experience dealing with that issue, so I’m sure I can handle it.
Especially since Karen doesn’t seem to have the angry eyes to go along with the mouth. Butt it does look like she could use a little trim and hairspray too.
Anyway, like I said, I could work with any of them…should it come to that. Which of course I don’t, officially, expect it will.
Oh and by the way, speaking of women, I’m not sure if you are aware of this: Did you know there is a war on women? Yes! And apparently it’s the R-words who have declared it, not Big Guy. Although the Dems are capitalizing (literally) on this grave injustice and have even launched another twitter hashtag where you can report additional GOP attacks on women.
You really have to admire Big Guy’s little people for knowing how to organize (and raise money) around their own manufactured outrage. In fact the Rush-rage seems to be so manufactured that even Bill Maher – big time Big Guy fan and contributor – felt compelled to weigh in:
And according to that *other Michelle* the real war is on conservative women. That won’t really change anything in the Liberal Outrage Machine though, because they don’t need facts on their side in order to make hay. They just work with whatever they’re handed:
The R-words should probably pay a whole lot closer attention to how this works: you know, the old “they bring a knife, you bring a gun” approach. So start thinking like a community organizer if you want to win and grab a gun.Just make sure it’s loaded, otherwise you’ll get killed.
That’s what Breitbart would have done.
