Oh, the drama. All the sky is falling predictions, a nation of Chicken Littles running around with their hair on fire, the sourpusses and worrywarts, what is a lefty to do;
The left is trying to come to grips with its utter rejection, and its response to Donald Trump will be to fall back on an endless series of freakoutrages – hyperbolic, unhinged, hack media-fueled spasms of faux moral panic every time he dares do anything.
Appoint someone to a job? Freak out – it’s an outrage!
Go to dinner? Freak out – it’s an outrage!
Actually keep promises made to the voters? Freak out – it’s an outrage!
Funny and sad all at the same time.
But it is worse than that. NBA teams refusing to stay at Trump owned hotels (where they have always stayed), the NBA pulling the allstar game out of North Carolina because the folks their just don’t cotton to male perverts being allowed access to girls rest rooms and showers, Paris designers wanting to Boycott Melania Trump (like she really needs your rags), the first foreign born first lady, wicked smart, speaks 5 languages.
Most of the possible appointees so far I know a bit about, but whenever a name pops up and the kneejerk erectus vomitus starts with the left, the level of their outrage in directly proportional to my approval of the pick, making them howl and bark at the moon, a welcome side effect for sure.
I guess they never read the story of the boy that cried wolf, or learned from the race baiters that screamed ,”Racist”, when ever the win blew. When everything is a catastrophe, or everything is racist, nobody listened to you, you have zero credibility, go bother some one else.
Could it be that they just need a dictionary to know what words actually mean? An all black cast of a dopey play lecturing someone about diversity, I know, right? BTW, how many labor laws did they violate with their blatantly discriminating casting call of “non whites only”, but some how it is “political” so we will all look the other way.
All this carping and gnashing of teeth over possible cabinet appointees, how memories can shorten when you will it so. Let’s take a stroll down Obama Lane; Tim Geithner, Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, Hilda Solis, Shaun Donovan, a virtual who’s who of incompetence and partisanship. But let’s all hyperventilate over Sessions or Flynn or Mattis.
I keep hoping that sanity will prevail, that after the requisite temper tantrums, a certain level of resolve and acceptance will take over, that the process is what it is, must be respected and honored.
For as ever long as this blog is viable, I will be critical (when warranted) of Trump and watch him like a hawk, but braying at shadows, won’t work, sorry.
