Raging Against the Machine

And soft butterfly kisses for the quiet wallflowers in the corner. This was buried in the Fashion Mag (NASCAR Neanderthals don’t appreciate the genius of Galliano!), so it wouldn’t be sullied by all those incredulous H8R voices laughing…perhaps even hooting (Quelle horreur!) derisively.
(And why do we crack about Sarah FIRST, ALWAYS? Loser.)

We know that Sarah Palin hunts animals on reality TV and cheers her daughter on ‘‘Dancing With the Stars’’ — but do we know that both conservative and liberal scholars rate Nancy Pelosi as one of the most successful speakers of the House in United States history?

We know that Congresswoman Michele Bachmann gave the Tea Party’s State of the Union response, believes that the founding fathers abolished slavery and urged her Minnesota constituents to be ‘‘armed and dangerous’’ — but do we know that Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California is calling for the United States’ withdrawal from Afghanistan?

We know that Christine O’Donnell assured voters she was no longer a witch or antimasturbation yet lost her bid to be a United States senator from Delaware — but do we know that Senator Barbara Boxer supported reproductive freedom and restricting of shore oil drilling yet defeated her Republican challenger, Carly Fiorina?

If you answered ‘‘no’’ to any of the above, you have the right to protest media that cover sideshows instead of the main event.

I am Privileged Liberal Wimmin. Hear me Whine.

    NANCY PELOSI is rated successful by WHOM? I absolutely refuse to believe this. A three-legged tree frog is more successful than Nancy Pelosi.

    Well, she moved mucho product through the doors, much of it landmark legislation. That is probably the thrust of the argument. Much like Sam Rayburn, I think, rammed Johnson’s landmark Great Society programs through the House in the sixties.

    Of course she darn near destroyed the Republic in the process but why triffle ourselves over trivial details.

    “NANCY PELOSI is rated successful by WHOM?” Pick from any number of idiots from the left nightfly, just say any name.

    So they all rate each other successful… and it becomes fait accompli?

    Man, my head hurts. And the NHL trade deadline passed so I don’t even have that to distract me now.

    The Wicked Witch of the House, a rousing success story… ye cats.

    Normal people would call it a “circle jerk”.

    Both conservative and liberal scholars…
    Scholars…both of them…
    That explains everything.

    Has there ever been a “scholar” in history that the media didn’t agree with?
