Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The F&^@ Is Wrong With These People?

Laura Ingraham think we should have traded Cantor to the Taliban for Bowe Bergdahl.  Then complains when the only remaining Jew in the GOP doesn't think being turned over to Islamist extremists is funny.

Huckleberry Closetcase thinks that Obama should... well he should do everything, presumably with an Imperious curse or maybe a Vulcan mind-meld.  He says we should "get involved" in Syria and Iraq, and oh, let's call in the Iranians for help.  Because.... well, because the Iranians are going to get involved anyway, so you can say it was your idea.  The fact is that this idiot has been trying to get America back into the Levant since Obama got us out.  Shut up already.

Tom Price thinks that immigration reform stalling in the House is Obama's fault.  Because he's not "enforcing existing laws".  The article dryly notes - accurately - that Obama has sped up deportations faster than any President.  Now, he will, rightly, slow that down, because the GOP won't do squat on immigration reform.

And then we have Dana Perino saying Obama shouldn't take a vacation because the optics are bad.  This from a flack who served the guy who was on vacation during Katrina.  There are always crises, but the ones happening now are not urgent.  Ukraine simmers.  Iraq burns.  But you know what, Dana?  You know what, Lindsey?  Those aren't necessarily our fights.  If there is one great gift Obama brings to foreign policy it is that we have limits to what we can do.

So everyone who was involved in getting us into Iraq?  STFU about Iraq.  Everyone who makes it harder for immigration reform to happen?  STFU.  Everyone who spews hate and says it's humor?  STFU
