It’s always nice to be validated, so I was pleased to read Roger Kimball’s column yesterday, Benghazi: The New York Times vs. the Truth. (Completely off-topic, butt does anybody know if they ever caught that one-armed man?) He concurs with my theory that Hilz is this season’s rehab project.
“How are we to understand the Times’s latest entry into the contest to rewrite history for ideological fun and profit? My own sense is that it has less to do with salvaging President Obama’s tattered reputation — he is well on his way to winning the prize for the least competent and most destructive president in the history of the republic. No, Barack Obama is yesterday’s news, and unless and until he is impeached and removed from office he will be pretty much forgotten by purveyors of all the Newspeak fit to print. They have their eyes on another player in the Benghazi scandal, namely Hilary Clinton. If anyone emerged from that shameful episode more discredited than Barack Obama, it was Ms. Clinton. But time is passing fast, and there is a lot of remedial work to do if Hilary Clinton is to be suitably repackaged as the Democratic candidate for president. That ambition, I believe, stands behind this elaborate, breathtaking exercise in journalistic mendacity.”
That’s right; he said it! “Mendacity.” Roger has quite a history of using inflammatory words like that. For example, in his column on the Duck Dynasty kerfuffle - The PC Lynching of Phil Robertson – he uses the f-word (fascistic).
It is also a singular example of how political correctness, via cultural relativism, is used to undermine democracy and freedom of speech and is, at its core, fascistic. (snip) PC and cultural relativism are the godchildren of Martin Heidegger and Michel Foucault, the philosopher apologists, respectively, for those most totalitarian of leaders…Adolph Hitler and the Ayatollah Khomeini.
I would note that the philosophy of Michel Foucault likewise inspired Silvio Funtowicz and Jerome Ravetz to create the dubious off-shoot of real science - “post-normal science” – from which “global warming” was birthed. Butt I digress.
As things turned out, The Duck controversy proved to be a grossly overinflated kerfuffle:
that quickly started to lose air,
until it was completely deflated.
So until such time as we have another case of cultural outrage for the Justice Brothers to prosecute, we shall remain focused on our current rehab project: reintroducing the Queen of Kool.
And Hillary won’t be a bystander, look for her to be actively participating in her own rehabbing. Word has it that she has been shopping around for some replacement parts that will “enhance her features” and allow her to lose the “pantsuits” fixture that earned her the moniker. Specifically, I hear she is shopping for some cankle replacements:
I’m thinking maybe she will go shopping for a new nose next, because this one seems to be getting all squirreled up:
I found this collection from the Duck Commander that might do the trick:
You can buy these babies right off the shelf, or for a little bit more, have one custom made for your face:
Butt if none of those “fit the bill” so to speak, there’s always this good old adjustable standby:
My only advice to Hilz is to proceed with caution, because these total rehabs don’t always work out the way you expect. Take Detroit for example, where we discovered we had to destroy the place in order to save it.
Sure hope that doesn’t happen to Hilz. Because it would be a real shame, if an ugly duckling like that were to be shot down before it had a chance to emerge as a beautiful swan.
All I can say is “Quack.”
