Every morning I scan my favorite news sites to determine whether Putin has taken out the major cities of the Eastern Seaboard or whether Xi has taken out the major cities on the Left Coast. After my relief at learning all those cities are still “intact” (quotes because it is hard to feel Chicago, New Orleans, Portland, San Francisco, etc., are intact in any reasonable sense of the word), I proceed to be amazed, astonished, sickened by the various grotesqueries I learn from this daily exercise.
Now and then, I run across a statement that so perfectly sums up the events of the preceding week I feel I must share it. Such an item is the opening paragraph of the Saturday column of the great and brilliant writer and scholar Steven Hayward of Powerlineblog.com, “The Week in Pictures.” I strongly urge you to check out the entire collection here, but with the caveat that you will, undoubtedly, “get hooked” on it as it is usually loaded with humorous (?) items of satire on the week’s events. Here is his opening — if you can find a better, more concise, description of the inanities rained down upon us last week, please let us know about it:
THE WEEK IN PICTURES: CAT 5 BIDENSTORM EDITION
So let’s see: Biden wonders where a dead congresswoman is, while Vice President Harris lets slip with where her real political loyalties lie—North Korea. Meanwhile, White House spokestoken Karine Jean-Paul Sartre lamented the damage to the “Nordstrom” pipeline, which can only mean the supply chain for Armani suits is in big trouble. Only a Cat 5 leftist brainstorm can explain all this, but as we know, only Republicans are the cause of serious storms.
There you have it! Life in these United States under the leadership of “people” without functioning minds! Thank God we no longer have to put up with mean tweets or where would we be?
God Bless America!Published in
