incompetent at governing and unwilling to be governed

Just in time for last nights Democrat "Debate" the NYTime's favorite Conservative diagnoses the reasons for the Republican parties incompetence. The cause of the GOP's problems, as everyone with a half-wit knows, is Rush Limbaugh.
"Over the past 30 years, or at least since Rush Limbaugh came on the scene, the Republican rhetorical tone has grown ever more bombastic, hyperbolic and imbalanced."
David Brooks just doesn't understand why the Republicans can't show more "intellectual humility" and promote "steady, incremental change" showing a "respect for hierarchy, precedence, balance and order, and a tone of voice that is prudent, measured and responsible." You know, like Bernie Sanders or Hilary Clinton. It's like this, traditional conservatives are supposed to run out on the tracks of history and yell stop - then get run over, but these Rush Limbaugh inspired rubes are actually trying to rip up the tracks or at the very least throw the switch and move the train onto a different track. They're "incompetent at governing and unwilling to be governed."

Pink Politician

Well, sort of, but Brooks like every DC pundit who's made a respectable living proping up the 1932 governing order where DC "rules" and the citizen/subjects "obey" will never understand what's roiling the GOP - He doesn't even understand Rush Limbaugh. Like most Democrats, Brooks thinks Rush is a political gadfly barking out orders to the GOP base, but any honest assessment of his 20 Million (!!!) average weekly listeners will show that his audience is ideologically broad. More importantly, if you listen to his broadcast (I mean really listen) it's surprising how little he actually addresses politics or politicians - What he really focuses his attention on is illuminating the fake media-sphere that supports, obfuscates, lies and ignores injustice in the existing political order. His target is not politicians or political parties - it's the blob of conformity that insulates Washington DC from the people in the "real world". Rush's target is David Brooks and all the pencil neck nerds like him that manufacture the news and popular opinion. Millions of Americans see it just as Rush does and they want to tear the established order down, scrub it off and build something better.

Proof - at last nights "debate" when Bernie gave Hitlery a pass on her e-mail server "scandal" by letting her know that "he's sick and tired of hearing about her emails" the press room (where all the reporters sit) erupted in spontaneous cheers. It would have been a great moment for the moderator of the "debate" to remind Senator Sanders that the FBI doesn't, as a rule, procure peoples private servers unless there is suspicion of criminal activity, but for some strange reason the follow up didn't spring from Anderson Cooper's lips. Bernie's gift to Hilary last night just proves what I've thought all along, that Sanders is a Stalking Horse designed to ignite the hard left base who loath all things Clinton and bring them into the fold when the time is right - He's a tool in the Democrat machine and nothing more - I'm sure David Brooks doesn't understand that either.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
