Past Opinion Articles
Article for the week of 4/30/10
This is a perfect example of what foreigners do when they try to swear without swearing. No foreign realm is as perfect an example as the British Empire. These folks can really lay some zingers out there, but can they slander their political counterparts? Who are their counterparts? American politicians have always been the less dignified mirror of the Brits. Now, there seems to be a disparity in the opinions of who can slander who better. America doesn’t tend toward slandering their British cousins, yet Britain feels it needs to take a more proactive stance against slandering politicos.
You want to know the truly sad predicament that the political arena finds itself in? Not accounting for the dung heap out behind the Pentagon, or the arrogant miasma shut up inside it. They find that members of their own organizations are defaming the United States. It’s got the whole of D.C. turned upside down on its ear. How about some prime examples of the traitorous pond-dwellers that are spouting to the media just how bad America really is.
Politicians that wag their forked tongues seem to have no concept of the evils they visit upon the American people. Personally, I can’t understand how they can so willingly forfeit the lives of other… their lively hood, for something that may or may not happen. What’s the deal, do they believe that we can train monkeys to take over the various offices that they will leave behind after the next election?
Have we reverted to the “He stole my election, so I’m gonna get back at him”, and “Do you believe a word he says, he’s a bad, bad man” games that children play? If you ask Hillary Clinton I’m sure she’d say that she’s going to pick up her toys and go home. It’s amazing how petulant and childish some people can be. Oh, and don’t get me started on the finger-pointing name-calling game, that all politicians involve themselves in.
Personally, I think that if the Brit’s really want to get into the slandery and petulatum tantrum events that the American’s involve themselves in, they should watch old tapes of the senate meetings on health care. Or maybe what they can do is watch the ever popular, “Being an American Politician for Dummies!” They could try the Mel Brooks type movies, “The Ten Indictments”, “Blazing Saddle: a Politician’s guide to the Kinky extramarital soirée”, and the ever popular, “Ten easy steps to a new Sex Scandal!”
Sounds to me like that’s a perfect road to success in the Slandering Arena. Take lessons learned from bad American Politician’s and throw the dirt around in sanctimonious gaiety.
