Perception And Reality

Maureen Dowd, in the New York Times, wrote that the oil spill in the Gulf was a disaster…for President Obama. The oil spill had no reality for her beyond its effect on the president and the Democratic party. Dead birds, dead fish, polluted wetlands, out of work fishermen, an economic disaster for the people living along the shore – none of that was reality for Maureen Dowd or for many others of the leftist chattering class. They are so wrapped into the cocktail party lives they lead they cannot comprehend that there are real people affected by real events. To the Maureen Dowd’s of this world there is no reality, only perception.



What is this thing reality?

The young man smiled and said

To me it’s what is like as not

To get me killed real dead

Ah no, said yet another man

What’s false and what is real

Is that which fits the narrative

Of how I ought to feel

You both are wrong, the woman said

For nothing’s really real

And truth is false and false is true

As narratives congeal

An older man, a passerby

Cried out then, quite aloud

Reality is opposite

What’s said by Maureen Dowd



Palin’ By Comparison

Have you wondered why the liberals, led by the mainstream media, have savaged Sarah Palin? Have you wondered why mummified teenagers like Maureen Dowd in the NY Times are relentlessly snarky, sneering at Sarah’s family, clothing, lack of an Ivy League degree and place of residence? Have you wondered why the Dems lose no opportunity to dismiss her as a lightweight, a stupid, ignorant yahoo? If you have, wonder no more. The answer is, she scares them. Scares the bejesus out of them. They know there is one candidate who can unite the fractured Republican party, energize the base and entrance the independents looking for real change, real governance, someone with smarts and energy and the good looks we seem to feel is necessary to win the presidency. They know and fear our very own Margaret Thatcher. And well they should. 



Our standard bearah

The gorgeous Sarah

Has energized the gentry

And all us proles

Who share her goals

With just a Facebook entry

With revolutions

And solutions

Labeled now by color

We think the One

Is one and done

He’s fading into duller

Tones that show

That he will go

As soon as Sarah’s ready

In 2010

Obama’s men

Will step off of a jetty

Election night

Will not be tight

A landslide for the ages

And we’ll regain

The fruited plain

And burn O’s darkened pages
