Your Lying Ears: And Don’t Talk About My Ears!

Is it official? Have we all collectively fallen down Alice’s rabbit hole?

generatorCaution: you are about to enter the spin zone

And here I thought that was just one of the Tea Party’s histrionic metaphors.

flag“Go ahead, it’s safe; see, there’s an American flag at the bottom.”

Butt how else do you explain the alternate universe we appear to have fallen into?

For example, yesterday Big Guy said that “under him people now have a new attitude toward America: And more confidence"?”

Really? because aside from the rest of the Big White minions who were already living in an alternate universe when they got here, I haven’t really noticed that – more confidence in America I mean.

And I couldn’t help butt notice the continued outbreak of jabberwocky surrounding Big Guy’s off-prompter “You didn’t do that” comment:

“Frankly, the other side can’t sell their ideas so what they’re going to do is distort my vision. Earlier today, Gov. Romney was at it again,” Obama said, according to the pool report. “Knowingly twisting my words to suggest I don’t value small business.”

“In politics, we all tolerate a certain amount of spin,” he added. “I understand those are the games that get played in political campaigns. Although, when folks like omit entire sentences of what you said, they start kind of splicing and dicing, you may have gone a little over the edge there.”

Allow me to translate that for you:

“I didn’t say what you say I said, unless you acknowledge that I said it, butt didn’t mean it. So let me make this perfectly clear. I’m all in with small business owners. As long as they agree to give back what they got – unfairly - from their government in the first place. And don’t even get me started on BIG business! We all know what SOB’s they are.”

Maybe I should just let BO explain this to you himself in Jabberwocky: in case you mis-misunderstood what you think you heard:

OBAMA: What I said was, we need to stand behind them, as America always has, by investing in education and training, roads and bridges.

Stop the tape. That’s not what he said in Roanoke. Here is what he said in Roanoke:

There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.

Boy, I think I know something that a lot of (formerly) successful Americans would like to “give back” just about now…

Still, it doesn’t end there. The alternate universe where reality is replaced with Obama-bonics seems to have settled in around some of our other leaders as well. It looks like Diane Feinstein has been sucked into the vortex too; yesterday she said:

I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks … I think they have to understand that and do something about it.”

After which she clarified that she did not mean what it sounded like she said…and in fact she didn’t really say:

I stated that I did not believe the president leaked classified information. I shouldn’t have speculated beyond that, because the fact of the matter is I don’t know the source of the leaks.

So there you go; those slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe!

Oh, and for those of you still interested in following along, Lady M was in Dayton yesterday, thrilling the local O-bots with her tales from the crypt:


mo all eyes

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!…”

And she addressed the crowd from her heart (the red one) explaining that she knew they shared her and BO’s vision for America:

What I remind people when I travel around, everywhere I go, we’re doing this because of the values we believe in -- our values.  We’re doing this because of the vision for this country that we all share.  We're doing this because we believe that everyone in this country should have a fair shot.

mo wrinkles and appliqueSharing our values as we sacrifice across the country

So farewell for now from the land of the Jabberwock, where failed economic theories repackaged as “social justice” are served up with a soupçon of insouciance so as to disguise the thin gruel that it is.

I think Alice herself summed the Jabberwocks up pretty well:

It seems very pretty but it’s rather hard to understand!  Somehow it seems to fill my head with ideas—only I don’t exactly know what they are!  However, somebody killed something: that’s clear, at any rate.”

Brillig, I tell you, absolutely brillig!
