Bush’s Brain diagnoses…
Posted May 13, 2014on:
Good afternoon Widdershins. I’m sorry to be so late in posting today, but real life has again gotten between my fingers and the computer keyboard. Please forgive my tardiness.
Originally, I was going to write about the newly overused word “scandal.” It’s everywhere these days. Benghazi, IRS, Fast and Furious — scandal, scandal, scandal. Almost like Jan Brady was writing the script for the RNC and all she did was replace “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha” with scandal.
Tea Pot Dome was a scandal. Watergate was a scandal. Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky was a scandal unearthed courtesy of a $70.0 Million Dollar governmental colonoscopy, but a scandal nonetheless. Benghazi, the IRS, and Fast and Furious come nowhere near scandals, but they serve as subject matter magnets to drain the wallets of the hyper-ventilating base of the Right. Personally, I don’t believe the facts matter a whit any more — it is the sowing of the seeds of the unknown conspiracy that really feeds the monster. Black helicopters come in all types and sizes these days.
There is no possible example of the sinister aspect of this cable news scandal frenzy better than the latest transgression of “Bush’s Brain” Karl Rove. This gelatinous, amoral, soulless insinuator has proved once again there is no level to which he will not slither in the furtherance of his disservice to the country.
Late last week, Rove implied Hillary Clinton is brain damaged. From Media Matters:
Rove told the conference near LA Thursday, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”
Rove repeated the claim a number of times to the audience.
Of course, facts never get in the way of “ham headed” Rove. The truth is: Hillary was hospitalized for four days and the glasses were to help with double vision occurring after her concussion — all explained during numerous interviews contemporaneous with the event.
Rove, chastened by the criticism, is now back-peddling claiming he never implied Hillary Clinton is “brain damaged.” That my friends is a twofer in terms of political spin — make the innocuous outrageous charge, then make the rounds denying making the charge all the while fertilizing the original outrageous claim.
This scurrilous piece of Rove excrement is now firmly embedded in the echo chamber of the Right via Fox, Glenn Beck, Drudge, WorldNet and every other piece of filthy newsprint not yet lining birdcages across the land.
For a man who engineered lying us into a war, who sent our soldiers into war without proper equipment, who played a pivotal role in killing somewhere between 600,000 and a million Iraqis, this latest Hillary Clinton smear is nothing more than an evil afterthought. Ham head didn’t even break a sweat on this one.
It is somewhat contemptible former President Bush is doing refrigerator art in Texas while his “Brain” is turned loose and is sowing seeds of malicious lies in order to line his pockets with the detritus of Billionaires. Perhaps it is time for a reunion of Bush with his Brain — may they paint happily ever after.
This is an open thread.
