The shame of Andrea Mitchell and the ongoing implosion of NBC as a legitimate…well uhmmm…anything….got me thinking, or at least musing, about my favorite topic of the last few years which more or less goes under the heading: How did Barack Obama turn millions of otherwise intelligent people into brainless, soulless zombies? No matter who wins in November, I now believe this mass hypnosis will be his crowning achievement. We’ll look back on the Obama interregnum with cringing wonder at how so many happily gave up any pretense of principle in the service of an overrated, overblown, disengaged hack.
- Before the jump please allow me to tag the Mitchell minidrama with the irresistable title: WAWAGATE.
I may be too harsh on Obama. Turning so many brains to mush is an accomplishment after all. Mitchell is merely the latest in a long line of quiet cultists who’ve been exposed as creepy Obama duendes . Michael Beschloss, who is rumored to be a historian, bolted out of the gate early with his absurd statement about Obama’s intelligence. Three plus years later even those with moderate or low intelligence easily know his comment is laughable and embarrassing. (Perhaps we need a top ten list of the stupidest living historians.) The beat with these people goes on…and on.
One thing I’m genuinely looking forward to is watching this cult come unhinged. I really am. They are barely holding it together now. They need a new “hit” of the Obama drug every few weeks and Obama is smart enough to know this. He’s their supplier and he’s been supplying.
This unhinging will happen whether Obama wins or loses. In fact, it will probably happen with more dramatic flair if he wins. An Obama loss will merely produce a slew of idiotic, misguided excuses before the entire gaggle limps away. An Obama win however holds the promise of watching an entire segment of the population self-immolate as term two Obama crashes on the jagged crags of this or that scandal. I wonder if we can get Bill Maher and Janeane Garofalo to do a pay per view in which they both explode into flames while screaming that everyone on earth is a racist – except them and Barack Obama?
Cult is no longer my favorite descriptive for the “creative class” Obama Pods. (They’re neither creative or classy.) Since 2010 they’ve evolved into something more like the sad weirdos on Ancient Aliens. They see ridiculous “facts” as proof of some grand, patently idiotic narrative.
Obama is not to blame for anything, it’s only and always evil Republicans (Who, FYI, haven’t changed much at all in my adult life) is the intellectual equivalent of: Egyptians couldn’t possibly have built the pyramids, therefore sentient beings from across the galaxy landed here and used their astounding technological know-how to show us backwater morons how to stack rocks.
Yes, that’s the answer. It must be. Or else I was duped by Obama, which cannot be possible since he loves me and I’m so smart.
The Ancient Alien narrative of Obama also has the added benefit of making room for the smug insult, something the alleged creative class simply adores. For Ancient Alien believers no human civilization ever accomplished anything (we’re too stupid) without the help of little green men. In the Obama cult version, Obama has only ever been held back by others of lesser magnificence, never because of his character flaws, incompetence, or mistakes. He too smart, has no flaws, and never makes mistakes. Everyone else is wrong. ALL THE TIME. Why just look at this clip of Romney which I doctored for clarity.
Of course, this nonsense also turns to mush. Hence we witness heretofore respectable people Andrea Mitchell emerge from the cult tent to impale her reputation in the service of protecting Obama from devious lesser beings like Romney. This is both sad and hilarious to watch, like one of those clips on Americas Funniest Videos in which an elderly man’s pants drop off while he’s waltzing with his wife.
Andrea Mitchell ought to be ashamed of herself and apologize. She isn’t and she won’t though. Being in the service of her lord is more important than her integrity.
