Well, that was ugly.
There’s nothing worse than shooting a powerful rocket in the air, only to have it fail to launch. Or worse, blow up right in front of your eyes.
I suppose it’s partly due to the fact that we are just so darned committed to being transparent around here. Here’s our standard attack strategy:
- The drop: someone close to the administration drops a non sequitur into an otherwise innocuous conversation.
- The slap-shot: one of our media lap dogs wins the face off and slaps the puck as hard as he/she can down a very slippery surface.
- The score: the designated player zips around the goalie and puts the puck in the net, thereby launching the...
- “Liberal echo chamber elite cocooning” offensive: (i.e. the talking heads can’t stop talking about it).
That’s how we introduced our Class War with the Buffet Rule; that’s how we launched the Republican’s “War on Women” (WOW) with the “contraceptive” issue, and that’s how we launched our “If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon” Race War.
Big Guy used to stay out of the fray until such time as the mine fields had been swept and AxeMan had determined it was safe for him to wade in (e.g. our poll numbers are in). Theoretically this had already occurred with the WOW, so last Friday Big Guy himself launched a missile in what was not intended as a declaration of war, butt rather a simple tactical assault.
“And then there’s the woman who once advised me at the law firm in Chicago where we met. Once, uh, she gave me very good advice. That’s why I decided to marry her. And once Michelle and I had our girls, she gave it her all to balance raising a family and pursuing a career. And something that, could be very difficult on her, because I was gone a lot. Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I’d be traveling. And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work. And I know when she was with the girls she’d feel guilty that she wasn’t giving enough time to her work, and when she was at work, she was feeling guilty she wasn’t giving enough time for the girls. And like many of you, we both wish there were machines that could let us be in two places at once.”
Then we had Hilary Rosen, one of our paid DNC strategists and frequent Big White visitors – if you consider 35 times “frequent” – escalate the offensive. And offensive it was: “She’s never worked a day in her life” !?? Yikes! You really shouldn’t let your elitism slip out that easily.
Butt she has a point. Maybe Ann should have just hired herself a nanny to take care of the boys…
so she could have done something more important:
Like become a world famous Famous Icon and Busy Mom.™
After initially standing her ground against Ann Romney’s very civil push-back (and getting thrown under that very crowded “Obama Express to Nowhere” bus) Hilary was forced to apologize. Butt trust me: she’s not happy about being set up like that.
How do I know? You don’t say things like “Can’t we just put an end to this phony war?” - thereby letting the whole dead cat out of the bag - unless you’re PI**ED about being under that smelly bus.
And I think the fact that the Big White denied her 3 times (“I personally know 3 Hilary Rosens” Jay Carney) didn’t help matters one single bit.
The 3 Hilary Rosens that the Big White knows:
Hilary #1: CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America; who spent her early career working for the Big Recording Business. Her major responsibilities included prosecuting kids (note: if this little girl had a stay-at-home mom this probably wouldn’t have happened) and stay at home moms for downloading songs off the Internet, and promising the “talent” that “the guy with the cocaine will be at the bus 20 minutes before the show.”
Hilary Rosen #2: Democratic lobbyist (paid by DNC), strategist (paid by CNN) and LGBT activist (paid by Human Rights Campaign):
Hilary Rosen #3: Working mom.
It’s possible the 35 Big White visits were split evenly between the 3 Hilary Rosens.
Well anyway, don’t worry Hil, you won’t be alone under the bus for long. Whoever came up with that stupid talking point: “what could stay at home moms who’ve never worked a day in their lives know about the economy?” will be right there along side you pretty soon.
Unless of course it was someone who is bulletproof.
UPDATE: Yes, it’s the same orange frock recycled from our first Big White Food TV special. Different shoes this time though.
Further proof that stay-at-home moms don’t even know how to dress correctly:
Everyone knows that boob belts don’t belong around your waist.
…and that you wear two of them at a time.
UPDATE: This just in from American Power - “Well, shoot, at least somebody decided to mention that Hilary Rosen is a lesbian freak radical feminist.” So there you have it, MOTUS, American Power, American Digest, The Other McCain, Maggie’s Notebook and the Daily Mail: doing the work the lap dog media refuses to do. Full disclosure: MOTUS is a card carrying member of the Daily Mail’s yellow journalism school.
