In any case, now I have come home, plugged back in, and it’s pretty clear to me that America under Obama has gone completely insane.
That's not a subjective impression but, rather, an objective finding of fact. What's going on in this country right now is just plain nuts, and perhaps it takes stepping away for a little while and then coming back to look at it with fresh eyes to see just how far the madness has gone.
I see NBC news anchor Brian Williams has been bragging about looking down the barrels of RPGs and dodging floating corpses in New Orleans and all sorts of other badass stuff. Of course, none of it was true. Wouldn't you think that the few remaining ancients who still watch network news might expect more? Suspended shushmended. Doesn’t it seem a little crazy that this guy still has a network anchor gig to come back to?
I find it odd that a guy paid millions of dollars to tell the truth doesn't get fired when it's discovered that that's not what he does. I mean, Brian Williams has one job, to tell people the truth, and it turns out that he's just Bill Clinton with rocket-propelled grenade launchers.
The funny thing is that Brian Williams had nothing to be ashamed of. He went to Iraq. Good for him. That’s pretty cool. Everybody’s not Chris Kyle. I was deployed in a couple hostile fire zones, but I was so far in the rear with the gear that most the gear was in front of me. But I know guys who were really in the midst of the stuff, and some of them got hurt. Brave Brian's pathetic attempt to steal their glory doesn't make me mad. It makes me embarrassed for him. But then, as a conservative, I was born with a shame gene.
Naturally, the mainstream media is circling the Volvos to protect its poster boy. Apparently we are the crazy ones for expecting an anchor not to lie through his teeth to make himself look like a big man. No, the elite can't let Brian Williams fall. He's one of them. Plus his daughter is super special too. She’s conventionally pretty and mimes transgressive sex acts on another lying elitist's barely-watched TV show. These are our betters; we’re just too dumb and busy with jobs to realize it. We can't hold Brian Williams to lofty standards like “not lying all the time” – that's crazy talk!
