The One’s One

Is it possible to really love your country even though you think it's just plain mean and you've only become proud of it twenty-five years into your adulthood after it confers an enormous benefit and accompanying prestige on your husband?

I suppose so.

But isn't it more likely under those circumstances that you've just come to love your country because it elevated your husband against all odds? In which case, under the most charitable assessment, it would amount to an epiphany – "Hey, this country may really be as great as they say it is!"

But then if Bobo and Mickey hadn't been given this high honor solely because they're black, is it safe to say that America would still be just plain mean and Mama Michelle would still be ashamed of her country?

I saw a bit of Mickey's speech last night. It was hard to watch for two reasons:

a) Like her husband, Mickey is singularly repulsive – but in a different way. Bobo is the sing-song arrogant undertaker, Mickey is the mean- ass little woman – something her Stepford demeanor couldn't conceal

b) My wife was yelling to get her off the TV screen, and you have to know my wife to understand how rare it is for her to be so repulsed and to convey it by yelling.

Such is the nature of the reactions Bobo and Mickey elicit – they make thinking people scream. If they lose, look for them to become obnoxious commercial pitchmen on TV. Oh, I'm sorry, make that "pitchpersons."

But seriously, what happens if Bobo does lose? Will the 2012 election be a "Groundhog Day" for Democrats? Will Hillary and Bobo and Jo-Bo find themselves vying for the nomination yet again? Isn't the mere anticipation of it enough to cause you to want Bobo to lose this year?

Everyone will have learned from the current experience and it will become a real-life chess game – with bigger and better insults and bigotry!

Will Bobo learn how many States there are?

Will Mickey be proud of her country for the second time?

Will Hillary have had a facelift?

Will Bill be dead?

Will Biden have even more hair and less brains?

And will Pelosi and Biden still be Catholic?

I'm already giddy with anticipation.

And for the first time in my adult life I'll be proud..

Ah well, you get the idea.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    No kidding. Despite the makeover, I didn't buy her smooth talk for a sec.Barack Hussein Obama et al are completely manufactured. These people have worked hard at achieving acceptance – though for all the wrong reasons – at the level they' re at. As walking in the Clintons' footsteps, they are going to fight tooth and nail to keep it, using whatever means necessary to crush the opposition..It's appalling to watch that everytime they are met with any opposing meme or evidence, they resort to silence it. Not with facts, but with abuse of power.I hope we don't get to witness the rise of the real Nazis in this country.

    You touched on something I consider to be really important – the Nazi-like atmosphere. If you read anything that allows comments and is frequented by liberals, you see a mindless, vicious movement, especially of young people.
    We Won't know until November just how widespread it is, but it is worrisome. They don't rely on reason, they rely on emotion, and Obama is the perfect candidate for them – a symbol for them and an extreme left-winger.

  3. Jordan says:

    The maniacal desire of democrats to curtail freedom of speech that contests liberal views is part and parcel of who "progressives" are.Liberalism is antipathetic to all this country was founded on, It's the new religion that promotes irreverence and sinful against everything that is good and sacred.

  4. TedWest says:

    I absolutely concur. I was very naive when I was younger, I thought the change liberals were preaching was to make America better, and to be fair, some of what they sought would make America better. The trouble came when the change became "anything goes." And people trying to stop "anything goes" were the bad ones.
    Well, we've seen what that has produced, and they want more. Here's a column that reflects on a very visible manifestation of that change…

    I never really liked Saget as an actor or a comedian. He always came across like a jellyfish, but his new makeover wouldn't amuse me a bit. As for John Stamos, oh well, looks are not everything, because character trumps them everytime.Truly a sad commentary whenever people throw away any sense of decor for fame, notoriety and wealth. It suggests an inherent lack of moral values.
