How now brown cow?
The milk of dissimulation, deceit, and dishonesty continues to flow to nourish liberals souls distracted and defeated by the definite deflation of the rapidly diminishing fortunes of “Teh Greatest President Evah.” Fresh on the heels of nothing in particular, President Jimmy Carter of race-baiting anti-Semitic fame came fresh from retirement to remind everyone why no wants to hear from him.
So now we see that calling people racists really isn’t calling people racist when you simply say that what you said wasn’t at all what you said and well, you know it doesn’t really matter that we can all just go check the video and see exactly what it was that you said. After all, it depends on what your definition of “is” is…
I’m so glad we got that all straightened out. Clearly the former President (whom I’m glad to have been young enough not to have had the misfortune of having voted for) has received marching orders from somewhere or someone, perhaps in the counsels of his own mind freed now at 85 to give full vent to whatever random thoughts might pour forth.
There was a time when we were spared these sorts of excesses by former presidents who were decent enough to silently and with dignity shuffle off to whatever presidential library or foundation they might happen to have and then die conveniently in their sleep so that we could have a big state funeral where everyone could lie and pretend to like them who didn’t.
Of course in another world, Carter would never have been president and absurdities such as these would be rightly considered the incoherent ramblings of “old uncle Jimmy, please forgive him you know he’s getting on in years,” as we politely changed the subject around the dining room table or someone interjected with a “pass the peas please” to spare old uncle Jimmy the embarrassment of having to acknowledge even in a minor way his presence.
Alas, this is not the world in which we live and we get instead the opportunity to see full on the rank dishonesty that underlies much of how Washington politicians generally and liberals specifically conduct themselves. Prior to the days of self publishing, YouTube, and teh interwebs, things such as this would politely have been swept under the rug by the media establishment in hopes of maintaining a death-like grip on information and preventing the hoi polloi from disturbing the waters. Now we are in a different era, and everyone can plainly see that “Is” means “Is,” “Rape” is “Rape” and calling people racist is nothing but a callow and cowardly political ploy.
